Traditional notions of teaching view professors as agents who treasure knowledge and transmit it to students, but there are more flexible approaches that attempt to respond to diverse learning needs. In this edition of Do Better Talks, Michel Fiol (emeritus professor at HEC Paris) and Marcel Planellas (professor in the Department of General Management and Strategy at Esade) delve into the central themes of their latest book, La inteligencia situacional en la formación de adultos (Editorial Octaedro). They propose that the act of teaching involves the selection, design, and experimentation of learning situations, rather than just the transmission of knowledge.
