After facing the issues of Parliament for a very long time now the schools and colleges have started to function once again in many places around the globe. The site that many colleges and universities have been following strict regulations has been proven wrong by this one professor who has made learning more fun.
We find many teachers and professors mingling with their students in order to make more interested in the subject that each and this professor has taken to a whole new level which is now trending on several social media platforms. A music professor, Mr. Kenyon Wilson who teaches in the University of Tennessee wanted to spice up his course. Well, the way he chose to make his course more interesting is what is catching the eyes of many social media users. The professor made his subject more fun by sneaking a clue to the 50-dollar cash prize in the syllabus. You also gave a hint to get the cash prize hint, which was written as a passage in his music seminar class syllabus.
As per the hint it said, “Free to the first who claims; locker one hundred forty-seven; combination fifteen, twenty-five, thirty-five”. Well, this was none other than the hints for the locker number and passcode to the locker where the prize was hidden. Also, any person who gets the hand and reaches to the lock and opens it can take away the $50 note. The professor also kept a note in the locker along with the cash prize that said, “Congrats! Please leave your name and date so I know who found it.”
Nevertheless, when the professor opened the locker at the end of the semester, he found that the prize money was still there. Yes, you read that right the money was unclaimed. This proves the fact that none of his 70 students were able to crack the code. When he spoke to the media, Professor Wilson stated that he didn’t expect the students to carefully go through every word of the syllabus. He also said that he still wanted to reward the student who did read it thoroughly. His Facebook post states that this “experiment” has since gone viral with almost 2,000 shares now. All of his students and colleagues and also many people around the world have been amused by the incident.
Also, many people who came across his post mentioned in the social media platforms that they are looking forward to what is going to come up in the next semester to make his course more fun. Well, already he was seen asking, “What academic shenanigans should I try next?” in his Facebook post. Truly and unique way to get your students thorough with the syllabus and at the same time make studying more fun and interesting for them.
