Today, many students at our schools and universities are bored by the traditional teaching methods and have become complacent about learning. Once they have deconstructed “the system” of how to get a good grade this may be all that matters to them and all they accomplish in terms of learning. This tendency has a negative effect on the students’ ability to think “outside the box” and to adjust to new situations. Long term consequences include: a less effective educational system, a decrease in intellectual capacity, and lack of ability to cope with change.

I have developed a new teaching method, which focuses on essential professional skills acquisition to counter this trend. The primary principle is conditioning to embrace the richness and wisdom derived from overcoming obstacles and understanding opposition. The goal is to bring students (and professors) out of their comfort zone, hence the name “Out-Of-the-Comfort-Zone (OOC) teaching and learning.” In brief, this method requires flexibility of the format for both teaching and learning. It employs continuous alteration of the conditions under which students work on their assignments.

It is an interactive, assertive and a “real-life-simulation” teaching style with high demands of responding “on-your-feet” and essential professional skills such as flexibility, discipline and teamwork. The method fosters adaptation, alertness, emotional intelligence, and innovation and can be applied to all fields and at all educational levels ranging from high schools to universities.

For reasons of simplicity, I here refer to universities, professors and instructors, but due to the versatility of the described method, these can be interchanged with schools and teachers. Industry, non-profit organizations, and government are here defined as professional environments outside the universities. I often use the industry environments or companies as examples for all of these. This book is a result of the insight I have gained using this type of teaching at North Carolina State University.
