Several teachers teach from the course textbook, but also draw from their own experiences and other media/texts. Miami gives a well-rounded education because they stress that non academic activities are important, too. Learning comes from the classroom, but more importantly, I believe, outside of the classroom. There are many lectures, performances, art shows each week to further the education you can get from Miami.
