Abstract: A teacher is in a sense a guide that points the way. By following the signs students are lead towards a goal. Obviously the students need to believe in their hearts that the signs are point-ing correctly and will take them to a destination worth while. Finding the correct signs is ef-fective pedagogy. It requires two way communication and a teacher that constantly wants to learn more about the art of sign design. We begin this paper with a brief overview of the his-tory of education, and focus particularly on the difference between the American-Saxon cur-riculum and the German Bildung (Didactic). We also describe the Dialogue Seminar as a means to enhance Bildung and teacher development and to enrich the educational process and teaching profes-sion.
