Real teaching…

It isn’t about lecturing…
It isn’t even about flipping the classroom (putting those pedagogically unsound lectures online)…

It’s about invoking that spark in students’ minds, getting them to ask questions and then hunt down the answers. It’s about asking the right question yourself, prompting those aforementioned questions.

Ramsey Musallam in his TEDx talk “3 rules to spark learning”, explores this in his own classes.
