First Paragraph

We are all teachers. If you are involved in pure or applied research you may not interact with students in the customary professorial way, but you are still a teacher. Our fast-moving interdisciplinary field guarantees you will be called upon to transmit information to groups of people. Whether they are peers, managers, or students, you will need to teach them.
