Abstract
Student evaluations are widely used to judge how well a professor is teaching. However, because students have little prior knowledge of the subject matter, their view of "good teaching" may be more tied to how well they like the teacher. Therefore, this paper suggests that the relationship between teaching and learning may actually be negative. By teaching "well", do we rob our students of the opportunity to learn?
