Educators as Entertainers
I met a new faculty member this year who announced to me that it's not his job to entertain students. In fact, he explained that he tells his intro class - to paraphrase - this class, the material for this class is boring; there's no way to make it interesting. As you would expect, I was stunned. The video below speaks to this - if these meerkats remind you of your students, maybe it's time to consider changing your approach to teaching.
