The Open Door welcomes special guest Theodore Rebard, a professor of philosophy from the University of St. Thomas, in Houston. He’ll lead us in a discussion on “Undergraduate Teaching: Promise and Peril.”
Our questions include the following.
- Can you share some of your teaching successes?
- What made them possible?
- What are the main obstacles that you face in teaching?
- Can you identify some of their causes?
- C.S. Lewis said that the “task of the modern educator is not to cut down jungles but to irrigate deserts.’ Is that true today?
- From the new platform of the American Solidarity Party:
“Education is vital to the formation of the human person and the good of society [and so] the American Solidarity Party advocates for affordable, diverse, and well-rounded educational options” and “public support of both public and private schools, with a preferential option for economically disadvantaged students and an emphasis on making teaching a well-paying occupation.”
Do you agree, disagree, or find yourself “creatively ruminating” about the above?
