My students at the university are learning magic tricks which they teach to their classmates . . . the prestidigitation kind not the occult . . . the exercise is intended to give them experience in demonstrational speaking, the act of teaching a skill to others, while signposting the importance of critical thinking.
Too many folks out there manipulate perception in order to hoodwink folks and take advantage of them. Well, in my communication courses, I endeavor as much as possible to impart the Quintilian Paradigm . . . an adaptation of the famous statement by Marcus Fabius Quintilianus that essentially boils down to “the essence of communication is a good man speaking well” . . . that is, we endeavor to master the art of communication but we use those skills for the public good rather than to manipulate for selfish gain.
In that spirit, I’ve prepared a short video which is part lecture and part tongue in cheek parody of would be psychics who promise the universe via some sleight of hand and even more sleight of mouth.
Okay, the full title for this episode is “Perception and Real Reality: Critical Thinking, Magickal Trickery, and Communication.” Yes, I do indeed discuss my detachable finger in this one.
