I still feel wistful when I think of Guy Bensusan, a man I never met but who was able to talk to me through his stories, examples, and passion for teaching the person (as opposed to teaching the material). This article takes me back to those heady days on DEOS (now it's all conference announcements and posturing) when we were exploring what teaching online really meant. I haven't seen this article from Bensusan before, though it may be a reprint. Anyway, it takes me back to my own days of swimming lessons when we were packed into a car, driven to Russell, dumped into an icy early morning pool, and drilled red Cross style. I wish I had had Bensusan as a swimming instructor.
