Managing Learning Technology: What If Being a Good Scholar Bore No Relation to Being a Good Teacher?

I couldn’t help but share this article by Edward O’Neill.   This is a topic we discuss more and more frequently – he examines the difference between scholars and teachers.  I would have used the contrast of subject matter expert as opposed to scholar, but the terms are interchangeable in this instance.  Being a great scholar/subject matter expert is not the same thing as being a great teacher.  There is value to both, explained in his post.  But it needs to recognized and resources used accordingly.  Fantastic articulation of an issue that deserves more attention.
