Don’t blame the students | February 16, 2008

Don’t blame the students

Some teachers/lecturers/tutors/professors cannot teach. Period. Not because they lack knowledge or IQ, no, they lack “interesting”. They focus on irrelevant messages, irrelevant ideas. “Now I get to talk, and you get to sit and listen” thing. I had such examples at Russian school, at Turkish school, and in Malaysian university.

Here’s a great example (in my view) on how to make your student never come to a tutorial again. Ask them a simple question on the first math tutorial “Do they teach derivatives in Turkmenistan?” Bingo, the tutor is a stupid jerk who had enough brains to check a CIA Factbooks website, or the Wikipedia article about Turkmenistan, written by some other jerks who never even visited my beautiful country. Why should I learn again the basics of math at university? That was like 7th, out of 12 grades.

Or that teacher’s endless rants about the might of Turkish army and business. Excuse me, am I in the right class? In the right institution? In the right country?

Or that teacher who focused on Greek history in my Russian school. Hello! Do I look Greek, Roman or Byzantine to you? I don’t go back home and sit at the table man, I still sit on the floor and sleep on the floor, and consider this nomadic lifestyle highly civilised and healthy 😀 Earth to Moon: “Do you copy? Mayday, mayday. This is Earth…”

Overall, don’t blame students please. Who will listen to lunatics?
