Intuition and the Creation of a Better World

Bache, Christopher

In lecturing there is a moment that comes when a student has asked a question or when you are searching for just the right example to communicate a difficult concept to a particular group of students, with their distinctive capacities and limitations. There is a pause in the flow of your mind, a break in the continuity of thinking. These moments are choice points, opportunities for intuition to transform an otherwise predictable lecture into a lively improvisational exercise. A good teacher learns to enter these moments often, to reach deeply into the possibilities they present, and to use the inspiration that flows from them to do one's work more effectively. Through them the new and unprecedented enters the room.
