Teaching has played a central role in my academic life. I am still learning about how to be able to transmit properly ideas to a wide variety of audiences, but I can point out several benefits of this noble activity:
- You will be able to learn more about several topics with the diversity and variety of questions that come from the students. You have a rich source of material that will force you to think out of the box, since some of the questions asked by the students are related with the interpretation of a given topic.
- You will be able to present your research in a more clear way. Teaching will offer you the possibility to find out (maybe in a hard way) how effective you are at explaining something.
- Teaching a class at a high quality level can change lives. I do not exaggerate as I saw this myself as a student. There were many people that had an inflection point in their lives defined partly by how they got interested and inspired on a given topic, thanks to a professor that did his/her job in a professional and responsible manner, without the need of being a personal coach or so.
