On this episode, we met with Doug Robertson at Area 51 to discuss the weird in education. He shares with us the vision behind his methodology of teaching, as well as some amazing wisdom nuggets. Doug is an engaging, interactive, and incredibly weird teacher from Portland, Oregon, and he is on a mission to share his passion for teaching with us all. Not only is he an excellent teacher, but also he has published two teaching-related books (links below).
