ImageYou may have never thought of it, but each and every day of the week, America's teachers walk into a 25 man raid and attempt to take them to new heights. Raids and learning actually do have more in common than one would initially believe.
Alex Golub[/url], an assistant professor of anthropology at the University of Hawaii, recently wrote about his guild's experiences with the Prince of the Blood Elves of World of Warcraft, Kael'thas Sunstrider, and their battles in Tempest Keep. After inviting a new raid leader from another guild that did take down Kael'thas, Mr. Golub found out that his guild wasn't too happy with a new person pointing out their mistakes during the battle.

Through this experience, Mr. Golub found many connections between both raiding antd teaching, such as the necessary perseverance of the students to get to the goal and the necessary link between both the teacher and the students.

Our sister site, WoW Insider, covered the piece as well and gave us their own thoughts. Also, if you're interested, you can read all of Mr. Golub's thoughts over at Inside Higher Ed.
