What office is there which involves more responsibility, which requires more qualifications, and which ought, therefore, to be more honourable, than that of teaching?
Very interesting presentation about teaching: “How to Speak: Lecture Tips from Patrick Winston“.
How to Speak: Lecture Tips from Patrick Winston from Derek Bok Center on Vimeo.
Personally, the tip about not ending a lecture with thanks was new to me … and yeah, he has a very good point. Got to remember that. Plus the thing about taking what fits to your style from other speakers. It’s something I knew (love the quotation: “Use what is useful, reject what is useless, and add what is specifically your own.”), but he put it very well and gave a very good example.
