PSA for Professors #1

If you want your class to start on time, make sure you know how to use the classroom before beginning class!

I'm tired of having to run down two flights of stairs to get your VHS tape/DVD/Laserdisc/computer to work on the projector while all of your students stare at me.
It's irksome.

If you are a technophobe, then arrive early and ask me to set up the equipment for you. Arrive extra early. There seem to be a lot of you.

One of my lecturers was so technically inept we got to know the technician guy's back very well. He (the lecturer) also did seem to know which end of the mike to hold.

Another one used to put his elbow on the overhead projector were he'd just written and when we got herds of visiting lecturers the male ones over 40 never knew how to buy sandwiches in the caff.

Lecturer-watching is nearly as much fun as Asshole Bingo.
