Transcript of Teaching Methods

What is good teaching? Do we all define this in the same way? How do students define good teaching? I like this class... but don't understand why I need to be here... or how this applies to the "real world" I love this class! I love this instructor! I can't wait to learn more! This class is so.... sunny and the surf looks great... if only my dog could join me.... reaching students? inspiring learning? passing on knowledge? When you envision your ideal classroom setting what do you see? lecture from notes powerpoint "chalk and talk" The method of instruction is not defining.... all of these (alone or in some combination) can be included in best teaching practices. What defines best practices? interactive setting Who inspired you?

Teaching with passion
Challenging students The ability to listen and adapt The ability to relate to students
The ability to conjure up the “ah-hah moment” Mentoring Maintenance of balance The ability to communicate well Good teaching starts with well thought out and well planned lectures that are organized and easy for students to follow. Good teaching is about knowledge and content and maintaining relevancy in your field. Good teaching is about motivating students to learn, developing and fostering of self-instruction, and approaching this process in a manner that is relevant, meaningful, and memorable. Good teaching includes the establishment of high standards and expectations for student performance. Good teaching is about listening, questioning, and having the confidence and ability to react and adjust to changing circumstances. Good teaching can and should be entertaining and interesting – but this does not have to be at the expense of rigor and substance. Good teaching requires the respect and attention of students in an enthusiastic classroom atmosphere that can facilitate learning This can be best accomplished through humor (often at your own expense), stories, and conversations with students both in and out of the classroom. Good teaching provides the means for students to think about and evaluate the world differently, to see every day life though the eyes of the discipline and the lead students to make conclusions that they never would have thought of before. Good teaching is about mentoring faculty, passing on lessons learned and seeking continuous improvement. Teaching success and the promotion of student learning results from a balance between mastery of subject matter, the ability to communicate this knowledge, and the development of a good rapport with students.
