Tutor description

This paper is provided as study guides only please do not submit this document directly to any university. The traditional teacher-responsible design for education in universities conflicts with what we know about how people learn. In contrast to natural learning, it substitutes teacher for learner responsibility. As it is based on extrinsic rewards, it undermines intrinsic interest in learning. Attempts to improve upon this approach would be expected to further diminish student responsibility and make things worse. Not surprisingly, then, the evidence shows a sharp decline in the effectiveness of universities since 1960. In other words, when doing the wrong thing, doing it “better” makes things worse.
