Dr. Crazy has yet another great post, this time on balancing the need to recruit students for classes vs. the dreaded over-enrollment problem. I won’t comment in full about this here, as I actually got in some lukewarm water this summer about a flyer I made to promote a course with low (but, in the event, adequate) enrollment.
I’ll just note that a solution is at hand:
- Item: The average American reads 4 books / year.
- Item: My Modern British Novel course has 12 required books. (Despite this, the class will be over-enrolled by at least 2 students.)
- Conclusion: Take my class, and be done with reading for THREE YEARS!!
You can’t beat that offer with a stick. Not with a stick.
