What if teachers taught like designers think?

We would think of students as people first and foremost.

We would observe more and rely on what is said less.

We would constantly be looking at what might change to help us understand how we could shape the future into our own vision.

We would want to solve problems and transform our insights into inspirations for all.

We would focus on the experience that our teaching brings.

We would obsess about new ideas, not new tools.

We would sharpen our curiosity and learn from the lessons around us.

We would meet our students on their terms.

We would train ourselves to unlearn and to reimagine and rethink instead.

We would worry about how our teaching makes our students feel.
