What would you say flat bed editing specifically teaches? Patience? An NLE lets you be a bit more creative IMO it lets you quickly try things if what you planned doesn't quite work or better yet you discover something that works even better.
I don't know a whole lot about Columbia's directing program because I wasn't in it, but their Cinematography program is very strong. I never used a flatbed to edit, although they've got a few still around. There is, however, a lot of editing film by hand using a Moviscope, and personally I strongly disagree with the notion that it's a waste of time. Editing by hand forces teaches you a certain kind of discipline that you don't get from learning on digital NLEs. Same for shooting on film as opposed to digital. I personally consider the fact that Columbia still uses film in most of its classes to be one of its strongest points.

If anyone has more feedback to offer it would be appreciated. Thanks.
