teaching lessons learned.

  1. avoid teaching two courses that i haven't taught before during the same term.

  2. avoid teaching in the mornings;

    it doesn't matter what the subject is.
    i'm better off teaching in the afternoons.

  3. unless the department offers me a specific tech guy or TA to handle it, avoid teaching courses which require a computer component (e.g. using MatLab, Maple).

    this always boils down to doing your own tech support,
    which is its own share of misery.
