Academic education is a powerful tool to form people. The concept of the lecturer who should read about a topic, students should manage to write it down than to retell it all during examinations is out of date. The key components of the lecturer should be:

  1. make student to love the course topic;
  2. teaching how to find the necessary information;
  3. encouraging using the possibilities available for students’ development.

These are the principles I was using as a lecturer of Documentary Film History at Yerevan State Institute of Theater and Cinematography.
