Medicine’s Stephen Sroka pens piece about compassionate pedagogy

Stephen Sroka, an adjunct assistant professor at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, opined that pedagogy must adapt to how students learn, discipline must be more compassionate, and building relationships is key.

His piece, titled “After 5 decades of teaching, 7 lessons my students taught me,” appeared on K-12 Dive.
