    Default Applauding in class

    Does anyone else applaud their professors at the end of a course of instruction?

    Maybe at the end of a breakout session at a professional conference if it was really good.

    If the professor actively tries to make the material interesting, or is able to hold our attention, you bet! Everyone's grateful for that.

    no... I might as well paint "brown nose" on my forehead

    If a professor ran a very good class that left me thinking, I'll hunt them down after class and chat with them- I actually ended up befriending one professor because of this He ran awesome classes on fascinating topics!

    Of course I took social science classes that were heavily discussion based as opposed to lecture based, so that may have something to do with it

    Yeah, at the end of most lectures we give a (short) round of applause. It's just a nice way to say thanks to the lecturer I think. Since for many of my courses we have different lecturers each week, I find it's better to applaud after each lecture than at the end of the entire course. It's the same as thanking the person who's served you in a shop or whatever - polite.

    And yes, there are such things as INTPs who overuse emoticons

    Yep, though we knock at the tables with out knuckles (I guess that custom comes from the fact that you're supposedly still busy writing with the other hand so you don't have both hands to applaud).
    Same applies to fellow students after presentations. I think it's always a nice gesture

    If the lecture deserves it. For sure.

    Also, at the end of the last lecture of the term.

    I don't think I've applauded at the end of a class before, though I clap during class sometimes, even though no one else is. Perhaps the applause is just a university thing, things are so casual at my school that is would look pretty silly.... I should totally try it
