Berkeley Professor Tries Implicit Means Of Engaging His Students

Tags: , , ,

“I am a professor in the business school, teaching macroeconomics. I have a set of powerpoint slides that I’d like to make more jazzy and exciting, without changing the content.”


I’m not sure whether it says more about the professor or just the study of economics that it will apparently take 40 hours and $400 to make his class sides “exciting” enough to keep his students awake.

I considered applying for the job, before conceding that my atrocious year of high school econ probably wouldn’t even satisfy theĀ “elementary knowledge of economics” qualification.

On another note, I’m saddened that I can’t see which professor posted this gem. Nothing would please me more than learning that Robert Reich used the word “jazzy.”
