The Teaching Company

As I am thinking of the benefits of technology for education, I cannot skip mentioning The Great Courses company, also known as The Teaching Company. This company videotapes the very best lectures and distributes them as DVDs or audio files. The first time I encountered them was listening to the lectures on the History of the English Language by Prof. Seth Lerer. I fell in love with these lectures. When people like them lecture, you realize how engaging their “teacher-centered” classrooms can be. Now, I was invited by a colleague to listen to a free lecture about the World’s greatest structures. I invite you to explore this company and the lectures. It is a real eye opening experience.

Just for your information, listen to an interview with one of the profs you will find in The Teaching Company – a Standford Professor, Seth Lerer. You will love listening to his lectures – it is a real jewel.
