Improving teaching — Sometimes the easiest things are best

I hope all of us want to be better teachers and help students learn. That starts with students feeling comfortable in the classroom. Part of that is knowing that you care, or at least notice them.

Classroom

This Chronicle of Higher Education blog gives 3 ways that you can do this. Guess what? They are all pretty simple.

  • Get to learn students names. Sometimes we may make an error, but show that you are trying.
  • Respond to emails in a timely manner. Along with that, teach your students some basic e-mail etiquette.
  • Show up — for office hours, that is. Be there when you say you will be there.
