I am wondering whether the following story is a good one for convincing someone, who did not share the same opinion:
I was teaching assistant in Macroeconomics iat the University of Neuchâtel for 2nd-year Bachelor students. I was working with a new Assistant Professor with whom we designed a new lecture.
In the third year of Bachelor, students have to choose an orientation. Historically, very few students choose Economics as a major and even less pursue a Master in Economics in Neuchâtel.
At the beginning of the year, I asked who would like to chose Economics as a major and maximum 2 people rose their hand. Recently, I received a mail from the Assistant Professor, thanking me for my work and informing me he is happy about the high number of students who chose to do their Master in Economics in Neuchâtel. He added this is because of some Neuchâtelois, who continued after their bachelor and very likely of our Macroeconomics course, for which we received great feedbacks, especially for the exercise sessions I was giving.
I have not convinced someone directly, but it seemed like we had an impact.
