TASK: Watch the video above where Dr. Lange and Dr. Ward uncover the techniques used by one of Harvard’s greatest living lecturers. Think about it in your own academic context.

Make a mind map of the key words used to discuss the problem, and be ready to discuss the problem in your tutorial. You are going to need this mind map for the next lesson, where you will create your essay outline on the theme you have chosen. So choose a problem you really care about because you are going to write 2,000 words about it!
