I would have liked to have had Brad DeLong as a professor when I went to college:
My office hours are Tuesday 1-3 in Evans 601. When people come to my office hours, they are enjoyable and fun.
When people don't come to my office hours, an unhealthy dynamic starts: First, I start accomplishing other tasks during them. Second, I start mentally slotting other tasks as things I can do during my (empty) office hours. Third, I start resenting students who come to my office hours and getting grouchy.
Nip this vicious spiral in the bud!
I was rarely lucky enough to have a prof who issued such a gracious invitation.Posted by Linkmeister at October 9, 2007 11:38 AM | TrackBack
