Lecture notes

I gave a workshop today about Flipping Classrooms which I’ll blog about on my other blog.  At one point I paraphrased Eric Mazur saying something like this:

College is a place where a professor’s lecture notes go straight to the students’ lecture notes, without passing through the brains of either.

Well, if you follow that link above you’ll see it’s sometimes attributed to Mark Twain, but it’s probably not by him.  I like it anyway 🙂
