by Peter B. Southard
International Journal of Information and Operations Management Education (IJIOME), Vol. 1, No. 4, 2006

Abstract: Teaching well involves bringing a certain amount of enthusiasm into the classroom each time class begins. One way to accomplish this formidable task is to take those areas for which the instructor already has a great deal of passion and translate them into experiences and lessons that can be shared with students. This paper describes one way to translate the passion for something as eclectic as a personal hobby and using it as a teaching tool.
