Instructors: Poor, Marginal And Good

For poor instructors, it’s all about the instructor.

For marginal instructors, it’s all about the material.

For good instructors, it’s all about the student.

    And for excellent instructors, it’s all about embracing madness!

    The good instructors seem to be few and far between, while the marginal and poor instructors populate academic like locusts.
    I say that with a good instructor you could teach anyone who had the desire to learn…the marginal or poor instructors could not teach even the most motivated pupil.

  • I am a little concerned that I am a marginal instructor. At least now I see what I’ve been missing and can make improvements. Thanks for the reality check Tim; keep up the good work!

    True, Ben. Often stark, raving lunacy! Thanks Chris. Thanks Patric.

Typos, Etc.
Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
