This came on at some point during college football season, and it’s from the University of South Carolina. I’m paraphrasing, because I can’t find anything about it online, but this is the sense of it.
A professor, walking across a pretty green quad. A student flags her down. The professor looks wary—who is this person?
Student says, “Professor, I’m in your BigIntro 101 class.” Still wary—oh lord, a student with a crazy question.
Student says, “The assignment you gave—” professor looks resigned to hearing a complaint— “we have to go find the readings ourselves?”
Professor, “Yes, that’s the assignment.” Detached voice, aware of repeating herself.
Student: “—and, there’s no one single answer?”
Professor, “Yes, that’s true.”
Student: “So, the assignment is really about finding the questions?”
Professor breaks into big smile. “Exactly!”
