Topic outline

    • Often we think that questions are too stupid to be asked; that asking questions reveals our ignorance. Who cares? No one is keeping a list or ranking of how stupid questions we ask or who is asking these assumedly stupid questions. On top of that, this kind of thinking steers you away from the main objective of your studies: learning new knowledge and skills. A fundamental part of a learning process is clearing doubts and misunderstandings. One part of effective learning is clearing these as efficiently as possible, i.e. if in doubt, ask questions. This is the place. Too often students are struggling with topics for ages without asking a single question and then complaining, how time-consuming a course is. I repeat, when in doubt, ask questions. I do not bite. I do not judge. I clear doubts and misunderstandings. That's my job.
