Robert's Teaching Tip of the Day (Tip 3)

One of the things we at Bond University struggled with was to keep the kids entertained and in the class rooms.

For that, a colleague of mine (aka Dr. Evil) had devised a cunning approach: While the lecture notes were electronically available (as Word documents), before any lecture you could only download a version where half of the content was blanked out. For the students to fill out during class. After every lecture the full document was made available.

At some point Dr. Evil was asked whether students are now expected to fill the blank parts in Word from that of the full document. That would be rather dull grunt work. Not worth the students' time.

Robert's Tip

Do not try to outsmart Bond University students. It is a game you are not supposed to start in the first place.
