This article explicates the role of the “professor” in educating students in concepts. We propose that information, i.e. the concrete facts or illustrations that underpin concepts, must be held to a minimum in order to allow students to internalize – in an active mode – their values, principles, and theories. Complementing the minimization of information is the full presence of the professor as a personage who guides students through the multiple perspectives associated with learning and implementing concepts.

Abstract

This article explicates the role of the “professor” in educating students in concepts. We propose that information, i.e. the concrete facts or illustrations that underpin concepts, must be held to a minimum in order to allow students to internalize – in an active mode – their values, principles, and theories. Complementing the minimization of information is the full presence of the professor as a personage who guides students through the multiple perspectives associated with learning and implementing concepts.
