What makes a great teacher "great"? Who are the professors that students remember long after graduation? The short answer is, it's not what teachers do; it is what they understand. Lesson plans and lecture notes matter less than the special way teachers comprehend the subject and value human learning. Whether historians or physicists, in El Paso or St. Paul, the best teachers not only know their subjects inside and out but they know how to engage and challenge students, provoking impassioned responses. Most of all, they believe two things fervently -- teaching matters and students can learn.  In a discussion exclusively for STARLINK members, Dr. Ken Bain shares "What the Best College Teachers Do".
