One focus in my apprenticeship with my teacher was that the main priority both ways was on how to practice.
It was from here that the what to practice flowed naturally.
My impressions over this past decade is that for later generations of both teacher and students this has been supplanted, partly through the dilution of mass instruction, with the main priority both ways transmuted from how to what to practice.
If so, this infers that the how to practice remains with the teacher and the what to practice with the student.
If so, this means the learning process moves from one of transmission to one of information and the art of the how to practice becomes in danger of obscurity.
