You should Teach with excitement and high motivation..……………and here is how to do that……………TEACH…… Team Teach (really both of you at the same time) with someone older (younger) than you NEW stuff in your old course NEW ways to teach topics in your current course NEW courses Large (Small) classes in a different setting (department, format, country, age (6 th graders) to industry folks Have visitors evaluate your teaching Volunteer to do peer teaching reviews – it is amazing what you can learn.
New stuff I’ve tried in the last 5 years… that you might want to try………. Clickers (“One Click at a Time”) -Decreases inactive learners – gets people to class – better prepared for outset quizzes.
