Yesterday was the first day of the spring semester, that meant I started a new adjunct position teaching an Intro. class in computer technology. The initial plan was stick to my script hit all the important points and end lecture as swiftly as possible. I’m sur teachers or similar professionals can relate that in public speaking, it never goes as planned and the ability to improvise is key.
My takeaway from that session is that my second section of the class today will get a much improved me. All in all I realize now that knowing the material isnt going to cut it, translation into the many different learning styles of students will be key. My plan is to use my blog as a conduit to improving my skills and amassing best practices as others can benefit from it.
