8.022 Lecture Format
No Problem


In your May 9 news article “Striking a Balance In TEAL: Whether To Learn Or Inspire” concerning student dissatisfaction with the 8.02 TEAL classes, Professor Peter Dourmashkin states that students frustrated with the Electricity & Magnetism materials tend to displace their frustrations on the TEAL format.

As a student in Professor Gabriella Sciolla’s 8.022 class, I would like to point out that, although I have been quite frustrated at times with the course material, I have never felt frustrated with the course’s lecture format.
