Yaks

I’d like to teach scientists how to program, but that would be a lot easier to do if we had better software tools to offer them.

I’d like to teach undergraduates how to design better software tools, but that would be a lot easier to do if they knew more about software engineering.

I’d like to teach undergraduates an evidence-based introduction to software engineering, but that would be a lot easier to do if more people knew how to teach well.

I’d like to teach everyone how to teach well, but that would be a lot easier to do if people in power actually valued and rewarded good teaching.

I’d like to teach people who don’t have power where it comes from and how to take it, but—ah. OK, I guess I’ve found the yak I need to shave.
