A Dr. Yoda is a college professor that is very often cryptic, unorganized, or otherwise frustrating in his teaching style, much like the Jedi Master from Star Wars. A Dr. Yoda's goal is to make you learn the information yourself, inflicting much annoyance and self-hair-pulling in the process. In a Dr. Yoda's class, you study twice as hard for usually half the grade. Dr. Yodas are often quirky and/or short. Beware a Dr. Yoda!! They have been known to lurk at East Carolina University.
Geez, that professor is a Dr. Yoda. He made us do a 5 page paper on something he doesn't want to teach.
