Dr. Leigh Zeitz professor at the University of Northern Iowa

Dr. Z: Leigh Zeitz , a student-centered Education Technology Professor

Leigh Zeitz lovingly known as “Dr. Z” to all of his students has powerful student-centered approach to his classroom at the University of Northern Iowa. I know because I've interacted with them for years.

He has taught in public, private, prison schools, and in college and loves teaching. How does he do it? What is his philosophy of learning? Let's learn.

Who will want to listen to this show?

This is a must listen for all higher ed education professors but also for anyone who wants to become a more student-centered teacher at all levels.

My favorite thing is when Dr. Z talks about his collaboration with Cliff Mims @clifmims and how he built a dynamic community between some undergrad students and grad students.
