“Teaching isn’t very different from good research in a sense and that is one of the things which I was quite pleasantly surprised to find out.
In research, we do work and discover something. And it’s only useful if you then teach somebody else what you have discovered.
So constructing a good teaching lecture is very much like constructing a very good research lecture … Both involve taking a large amount of material and distilling the essence and figuring how does that relate to something they already know.”
