“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime”
The above is a well known, highly quoted proverb, and yet I use it here again. This proverb fits perfectly to what I believe about education. Its most common interpretation is something like “it is more worthwhile to teach someone to do something than to do it for him.” As higher education practitioner, I believe that what we have to instill in our students the idea that they can learn anything. To satisfy their hungriness for success and achievement, we should teach them how to learn. That is, how to become self-learners.
