When it comes to teaching, there should be a standard of sorts. We should share what we know. Not anything more. We should be clear about the limits of our knowledge. That’s how we claim the space we are supposed to be in. No more, or less.
Many of us may find ourselves in a position where we are expected to have all the answers. No. Sometimes the best we can come up with is a good question. Maybe we can offer where to look, or who to ask. We shouldn’t break under the pressure of our students, boss, or audience. Instead, let’s make our network bigger. Connect with those more knowledgable and experienced than we are. The right people will support us in our role, even as we grow.
The stronger the network the more resilient the community, the easier it is to keep the standard, which ultimately builds trust, making the network even stronger.
