I got a really nice email the other day, from one of the provosts at my university. Here is the highlight:
“During the 2015 fall semester, in the categories of Quality of Course and/or Intellectual Stimulation, your course evaluations were among the top 5% of all undergraduate instructors at Duke.”
Which just leaves one question: Was it the quality of the course or the intellectual stimulation? Given the intellectual depths to which I normally climb, I’m betting on course quality!
