    One of the best modules on here. Although it was done 50 years ago, Skinner’s thoughts and ideas on education are as relevant and thought-provoking as ever. Very useful!

    Amazing and timeless perspective. Schools are still working toward much of this!

    What a treat getting to watch this interview was! As a BCBA working in a school, it was fascinating to see BF talking about the same issues I am facing in motivating both students and teachers, some 50 years later.

    It’s so interesting to see how he was thinking and helped me see how I can shape my practice and how I think about the work I do.

    It’s amazing that we are still trying to apply these ideas 50 years ago in classrooms, although we have made some progress. Always great to hear directly from Skinner!
