"Good design, when it is done well, becomes invisible” is an idea in the domain of product design. It roughly means that a good design simply facilitates the intended usage of the product in the best possible way, without drawing attention to the design itself. Good teaching too can be similarly invisible, making learning happen without drawing too much attention to the act of teaching itself. Along this vein, I aspire to teach in a way students feel the ‘learning’ more than the ‘teaching’. I aspire to teach in a way students feel they are ‘learning by themselves’ more than they are learning from me.
