Here at Biola University there is a small handful of exceptionally cool professors, whose names will withheld as to not arouse the jealousy of the “not quite as cool as the cool professors” professors.
The 3 primary factors in achieving such superior status on campus are:
1. Less Facts, More Jokes. Facts are not necessarily bad. However, when a teacher begins to sound like they are merely reading the definitions out of a dictionary, life gets a little boring for the student. Jokes, on the other hand, are always funny. And funny = interested students = learning.
2. Sharing YouTube Video’s. Case & point, this was email to me by a prof 2 days ago.
3. Feeding your Starving Students. In the college world, the gift of food is the best gift of all. Any food will do. But if a professor really wants to up his “cool factor,” then tacos, burgers, and home made cookies are definitely in order.
