Many technicians were taught our craft by individuals skilled in their fields. We learned by watching them, listening to their insights, and practicing those skills ourselves. While some of us may have had excellent teachers who walked us through the hands-on process of fabrication, others were taught by great doers who were perhaps not great teachers. Even many of the upper-level courses in O&P are taught not by educators per se, but by O&P professionals who may or may not have specialized knowledge about teaching. There is a difference.
