Video Lecture on How to Lecture

I just watched a recursive lecture by Patrick Winston. It explained how to lecture using lots of zany little stories and interesting concepts.

Patrick mentioned one interesting idea he called the "near miss". This technique illustrates concepts by demonstrating what isn't part of the concept. For instance, he demonstrates several techniques which do not make for a good lecture.

One final tidbit from the video: Patrick mentioned that he didn't believe people could learn concepts they didn't already almost know. Interesting notion.Watch the video.
