Default Re: Have you ever been embarrassed while teaching?

Emile, your post reminds me of something that happened to me last week. I wanted to show a movie, so I requested the multimedia room. I unlocked everything, and got the projector and computer all set up. Then I realized that the blinds on the windows were totally inadequate. It was impossible to see the movie because the room was so bright.

"Why would a school spend a lot of money on a computer and projector without spending a little money making the room adequately dark?" In China, that type of question gets blank stares.

Not embarrassing for me, I realize, but anyways...
