Welcome to My Mind
Any student entering higher education is required to make a transition. Part of successfully making the transition is to understand the expectations of professors. Unfortunately, this information is not readily available to students. Information that is available is not comprehensive and offers mere glimpses at the mind of a professor. Often times, information is passed from student to student without the underlying reason for a professor’s behavior/expectations being explicit. Students understand that they should go to class, take notes, pass exams, read the text, write papers. This blog explores the many idiosyncratic behaviors that are exhibited by professors and the logic behind these behaviors. Hopefully, this will help students avoid misunderstandings with their professors.
