COLLEGE TEACHING IS MOSTLY ACTING.

It's probably more accurate to think of a classroom performance as improvisation.  Yes, dear reader, you must have a script, but yes, dear reader, you must have the good judgement to deviate from the script when a useful question comes up, or when an ad-lib might help make the point.

A good actor, however, does not read his script aloud while the audience reads it silently.


Indeed.

I get dissatisfied course evaluations, mostly for offering open-ended questions on assignments and examinations, or for grading harshly.

I do not recall an evaluation suggesting that I convert everything to a slide show and make the slides available on line.

Go to slide 4, read and understand.

The most important part of a presentation is ...
what is not committed to pixels.
