Dr. Leigh-Davis Plans a Video Short on Why the Socratic Method Doesn’t Work


Only weeks after blasting the current university teaching methods, and also, for the sixth year in a row, successfully predicting the NBA Finals teams, Dr. Leigh-Davis is besieged by educators challenging her teaching criticisms.

New York, NY, June 18, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Leaving a viewing party for the NBA Finals, Dr. Leigh-Davis announced, “The only other time I have had so many people contact me with such strong opinions, is when I spoke on immigration.” After complaining last week about top universities hiring professors with exemplary credentials, but who possessed no teaching ability, Dr. Leigh-Davis has received numerous comments, both positive and negative. “Many people did not agree with me,” Dr. Leigh-Davis admitted. However, like the old saying, “what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger,” this has only led Dr. Leigh-Davis to enter in to a venture to produce a documentary short on the history of teaching; the different teaching models used over the years; where the teaching model is headed; and what the best teaching model should be.

Dr. Leigh-Davis was excited about this new project. However, she admitted, “I am concerned about time.” When asked if she still thinks online education is a good teaching model, Dr. Leigh-Davis responded, “I do not have enough experience as an online instructor to knowledgeably answer that. Although, I do admit it is the future, whether good or bad.” Dr. Leigh-Davis concluded, “I hope to gain more experience as an online instructor and I am always welcoming new opportunities.”

Dr. Leigh-Davis hopes to collaborate with other professors on producing the aforementioned documentary short, although she does not have anyone in mind at the moment. Dr. Leigh-Davis expounded, “This is something to come to fruition after summer.” She also joked, “Right now, I am just happy I have kept my nearly 1 decade long winning streak of NBA predictions; I look forward to the Thunder winning now, and the Lakers winning next year. Don’t laugh! Next year is a new year! The Lakers are making a comeback.” Dr. Leigh-Davis has suggested using a narrative film style, and Ken Burn’s type effects as a model for the forthcoming video documentary short on education teaching models. Notably, the Center for Teaching & Learning at The University of North Carolina at Charlotte, has published “150 Teaching Methods,” and also, its website posts and article stating, “In the general mind, doctors and lawyers are professionals, teachers are not. I believe we could change our semi-professional status if we could agree upon a list of Best Practices such as this one and help each other achieve them. A Brief Summary of the Best Practices in College Teaching,” Drummond, Tom, North Seattle Community College, 1995.

In addition to currently exploring online professor opportunities, Dr. Leigh-Davis has two (2) new books on Amazon. Currently, Dr. Leigh-Davis is a full-time law professor who specializes in teaching the subjects of business, tort law, contract law, anthropology, writing, and legal ethics. In addition to being a law professor, Dr. Leigh-Davis is a retired attorney, anthropologist, and popular TV & media personality, who regularly appears as a legal analyst and legal correspondent on NBC news, CNN and Fox news. She is also the former host of the Court TV television show, “The Court is in Session.” More information about Dr. Leigh-Davis’ television, writing and radio projects, can be found on Dr. Leigh-Davis’ official website.
