Truth in Advertising, Geophysics Edition
This from a course syllabus of a geophysics class at MIT:
Formally, this course has 4 contact hours a week. If enrollment allows it, the extra one-hour session will be devoted to a discussion of a recent journal article on a topic covered in the lectures; if the class size is too large this will not be feasible and the extra time will be used for a combination of resuscitation and literature discussion.
The only question is, is it the students or the instructor needing resuscitation in large classes?
