And while my knowledge of the Economics of Capital Markets has faded in time, the lessons that stayed with me were his real legacy:
âoeExpertsâ can be wrong, and say things that sound right â" so build a habit of evaluating new information and check it against things you already accept as fact.
If you see something wrong, take the initiative to flag it as misinformation.
A sense of playfulness is the best defense against taking yourself too seriously.
Iâve had many instructors before and since, but few that I remember with as much fondness â" and why my favorite professor was a chronic liar.
absolutely brilliant professor, wish my teachers would use this technique
Brilliant! I'm going to steal this idea when I teach...
I have heard this before, but I love the idea. I love teachers who icorporate methods such as this which keep you entertained.
So, there is a professor, a lie and me. I know he lies ? and have to find out what's true, what's not????
I like this teaching gimmick. I'm not sure I have the chops to pull it off, though.
Brilliant idea for a site! I will definitely be returning here, again and again...
This is an absolutely excellent way to teach.
From the page: "A sense of playfulness is the best defense against taking yourself too seriously."
Brilliant, imaginative teaching technique - sounds like fun too!
A good way to look at economics anyway. My economics teacher did this; except he lied constantly and actually believed it to be the truth.
From the page: "One of my favorite professors in college was a self-confessed liar. I guess that statement requires a bit of explanation."
From the page: "It is my intention to work into each of my lectures ... one lie"
I want to be a teacher like this.
a great lesson to remember
