Linguistics, learning and clowns?

Linguistics professor Henry Davis enters Studio C this week to chat about “flexible learning” and how he integrates it into his first-year languages classes.

UBC introduced the concept , but Davis talks about how he’s taken the idea and made his own.

A former clown, Davis also discusses the importance of performance in the classroom and how other professors can adopt some of his teaching techniques.

We also hear how the professor, who claims to be an “accidental academic,” took a unique path into the world of linguists.
