The Scroll: Where everybody knows your name
By The Scroll editors
Dr. Susan Alexander, executive adviser to the president and an economics professor, recently ran into a student from 20 years ago. He remembered her, and he thought that she would remember him. Well, she didn’t, at first. But the more they talked, it eventually dawned on her who he was.
And that got her to thinking about the way that “absent-minded faculty members,” as she jokingly calls herself and her colleagues, remember the names of students. After reading about her experiences in The Scroll today, you may come to the conclusion that remembering names is an art, a science or both!
Faculty members: What is your system to remember names? Drop us a response and we’ll post it with Susan’s blog.
