As teachers we are asked to construct a lesson plan that would last for 1 or 2 hours. The objective of a lesson plan is to guide the teacher what to teach (content, body of a knowledge) within a specified time.
Example 1 hour maths lesson would look something like this.
First 5 to 10 minutes
Next 25 - 35 minutes

It is good to have a reference such as Edward de Bono (1976). Teaching thinking. London: Penguin
2) I remembered very well my mentor Prof Dr Bevans in Leeds University Hospital, Leeds , England. He was a psychologist and also a mathematician. I enjoyed working for him under his research - multi dimensional research. At the age of 70 plus ..he was so eager to learn programming FORTRAN 4 from me . See? a psychologist, mathematician and .. a student at the same time. Me as his teacher in programming FORTRAN. Our roles always change.
What i could see to that is .. learning never stop. That was in 1980 - 1981. Leeds University Hospital. Hope to see this happening in this part of the world.
