    Your graduate work was on bacterial evolution, but now you're lecturing to 200 freshmen on primate social life. You've taught Kant for twenty years, but now you're team-teaching a new course on "Ethics and the Internet". The personality theorist retired and wasn't replaced, so now you, the neuroscientist, have to teach the "Sexual Identity" course. Everyone in academia knows it and no one likes to admit it: faculty often have to teach courses in areas they don't know very well.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Teaching What You Don't Know to be better than the print version?

    I think this book would be better in print. A number of helpful tips and classroom exercises are given that I'd like to access repeatedly. Not as easy when an audible book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Teaching What You Don't Know?

    The sense that I'm not alone in experiencing feelings of fraudulency and inadequacy as a tertiary educator who is assigned classes outside my area of expertise.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Yes. I found the book to be witty and edgy. The narrator was almost robotic and the author's wonderful writing style was not communicated as effectively as it could have been.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommended for any tertiary educator!
