I have had a blast this semester teaching with my friend and colleague Dan Ariely. He’s everything you want a teacher to be–smart, engaged, funny, attentive, candid, direct. He and I are teaching in a wonderful experimental course where the students work in teams, setting the syllabus and the assignments, ensuring that they’ve filled their contract, blogging in public, and in other ways not just flipping our classroom but making it do cartwheels.
