“Dr. Sekula, thanks for doing this video, I've thought about it several times since watching it yesterday. I get the distinct impression, you deliver a very interesting and engaging class - your students are lucky to have you.
"Just don't make any mistakes..." <- it's so simple ;)”
So simple! I know, right?
I really do try to make the class an experience. I only lecture once or twice in class during the entire semester; the rest is activities in setting up and solving problems, including calculating the outcomes of experiments done live in class. It's fun for me, and I try to make it fun for the students as well.
My entire class lecture video library is up on YouTube if you ever find yourself bored. In particular, you might like the last lecture of this semester on combining physics and machine learning to tackle hard problems in the cosmos.
