This video is a useful discussion ice breaker for individuals and groups discussing the topic of who or what is a teacher.

The Higher Education landscape has changed dramatically in the last ten years. The rise of MOOCs and the importance accorded to branding. The question of who or what is an academic is on top of the list. In a refreshing take, this video asks children "Who is the teacher?" and asks what they think teachers do.
