Three Tips on Becoming a Better Teacher
- Genuinely care about your students and their learning. Learn their names. Spend time with them after class, over coffee or tea. Share your passion for learning.
- Talk about how to improve your teaching with colleagues and students. Elicit student evaluations about one month into the course rather than at the end. Discuss student concerns in class and be willing to adjust your teaching.
- Maintain enthusiasm for teaching by accepting new challenges, teaching new subjects, and staying current with student culture.
