Myth Busters is a science entertainment television program created and produced by Australia's Beyond Television Productions for the Discovery Channel. The series are shown internationally, also in Finland from the year 2003. Each Myth Busters episode focuses typically on two or more popular beliefs, Internet rumors, or other myths. The list of myths tested by the series is compiled from many sources, including the personal experiences of cast and crew, as well as fan suggestions, such as those posted on The Discovery Channel online Myth Busters forums.
Working with the myths
In this workshop we’re discussing the myths around the themes of teaching and pedagogy in technical university, myths about the students who drop-out and the counseling services that universities are offering. Each group gets different myths to work through.
I’ve chosen these myths carefully and they’re somewhat relevant now in Tampee University of Technology or in Finland nationally. I am interested to know if these myths are relevant in your university or if they are under discussion in Hungary in general.
Every group has to decide if the each myth is confirmed, plausible or busted and give reasons for their decision.
Sharing the thoughts
In the end every group is presenting their myth and group’s solution about the myth and the discussion behind the solution.
