11 steps to teaching this galaxy's first university jedi course

I feel that this presentation belongs in the ‘Entertainment’ category instead of the ‘Education’ one, if it wasn’t for the fact that it actually happened! If you don’t believe me, google it, or buy my book.

Upon reflection, I suppose it’s a little dumb to offer an 11 step guide on how to teach this galaxy’s first university Jedi course, when such a course can by definition only be taught once. For there can be only one...but that’s another franchise.

Anyway, enjoy.
