be successful here you need to know a few things about how this pilace works One of the main things you need to know is the difference between the instructors you will have here and those you had before Let me take a few minutes to explain this to you First I am your professor not your teacher There is a difference Up to now your instruction has been in the hands of teachers and a teacher s job is to make sure that you learn Teachers are evailuated on the basis of learning outcomes generally as measured by standardized tests it you don39t learn then your teacher is blamed llowever things are very different for a university professor it is no part of my job to make you learn At university teaming is your job and yours alone My iob is to lead you to the fountain of knowledge Whether you drink deeply or only gargle is entirely up to you Your teachers were held responsible if you failed and expected to show that they had tried hard to avoid that dreaded result I am not held responsibie for your failures On the contrary ll get paid the same whether you get an or an l39vliy dean will not call me in and ask how many conferences i had with your parents about your progress indeed since you are now an adui t providing such information to your parents would be an illegal breach of privacy Neither wili i have to document how often l offered you tutoring or extra credit assignments l have no obligation whatsoever to make sure that you pass or make any particuiar grade at ail Secondly universities are ancient and tend to do things the oldfashioned way in high school your education was basically a testepreparation service Your teachers were not allowed to teach but were required to focus on preparing you for those allsintportant standardized tests Though it galls ideologues we university professors still enioy a large degree of academic freedom That means that the content and format of your courses is still mostly under your professor s control and the format will probably inciude a good bit of lecture some discussion and little or no test preparation Lecture has come under attack recently Fili pped learningquot is the current buzz term among higher education reformers We oldfashioned chalkandtalk professors are told that we need to step being the sage on the stage but should become the guide on the side helping students develop their probiemsolving skiils Lecture we are told is an ineffective strategy for reaching today s young people whose attention span is measured in nanoseconds We should not footishly expect them to listen to us but instead cater to their conditioned craving for constant stimulation Hogwash You need to learn to listen The kind of listening you need to learn is not passive absorption like watching it is critical listening Critical listening means that you are not just hearing but thinking about what you are hearing Critical listening questions and evaluates what is being said and seeks key concepts and unifying themes Your high school curriculum would have sewed you better had it focused more on developing your listening skills rather than drilling you on testetalting Finally when you go to a university you are in a sense going to another country one with a different culture and different values I have come to realize that the biggest gap between you and me is a cultural difference I have absorbed deeply the norms and values of an ancient academic culture and they are now a part of me You on the other hand come to my classes fresh from a culture with different values one that finds academic ways strange and hard to understand Take the issue of documentation For an academic there is something sacred about a citation The proper citation of a source is a small tribute to the hard work diligence intelligence and integrity of someone dedicated enough to make a contribution to knowledge For you citations and bibliographies are pointless hoops to jump through and you often treat these requirements carelessly Further our differences on the issue of giving or taking proper credit accounts for the fact that you so seldom take plagiarism as seriously as i do if you want to lznow the biggest difference between you and your professor it is probably this You see university as a place where you get a credential For your professor a university is not primarily about credentialing Your professor still harbors the traditional view that universities are about education If your aim is to get a credential then for you courses will be obstacles in your path For your professor a course is an opportunity for you to make your world richer and yourself stronger
