Some Teaching / Learning Philosophy
- Studying happens inside you.
- Dror's primary roles as teacher are:
- Highlight the overall structure / ideas / intuition / beauty.
- Set the pace and the standards / add a human touch.
- Take you on detours.
- (In all that, note the absence of "cover all the details".)
