    I think a lot of community colleges will have lecturers with only master’s degrees, but for the most part you’re right.

    No.. PHD degrees to Teach College courses O.o

    I’m also a little confused, but not for the same reason as this guy. Doesn’t one need at least a Master’s to teach college level courses?

    I wouldn’t expect some of those comments and questions from graduate students in science.

    Teaching should be about making people wonder about something, I like Walther Levin, where the style of teaching is much more original, he says “I am going to blow your mind” and he shows the class a contraption and he leaves them to wonder about how it works.

    I also like to watch videos with Richard Feynman where he asks the question what keeps the train on the tracks? and he describes the shape of the wheel – and it all seems so interesting and elegant.
