What this class is about

· This class is designed specifically as an orientation course for the academy teachers, although others are of course welcome.

· This course addresses practical needs of teaching. These lessons are about the nitty-gritty of the practice of teaching and outline the “craft skills” of the teacher. It remains up to you to decide when to use what.

· It must be noted that, although I have experience teaching in a real classroom setting, I am an unqualified teacher. Therefore, suggestions, comments, and constructive criticisms are welcomed.


A definition of teaching

· Teaching is, essentially, "helping people to learn". Everything else is a gloss. However, here I shall explain a little about what it means.

· Teaching is about setting up a purposeful exchange with a learner about a pre-determined topic.

· This includes telling them something new.

· This also includes carrying through that exchange while monitoring its success and modifying it as necessary, so that the learner ends up knowing more and being able to do more as a result.

2004-07-10 [Goldenberry]: Hey people, I hope I'm not going to be the only one in this class so please JOIN!!!

2004-07-10 [Sheona]: I'm sure lots of other people will be in the classes, even if they don't want to admit it ;)

2004-07-10 [font]: hehe I wonder who wouldnt admit that :P

2004-07-12 [Silver Wind]: People who perhaps wants to learn but doesn't feel that they can commit themselves to a class?

2004-07-12 [travs the bean]: i can't commit myself at the moment - but it doesn't mean i will be hidden - besides i've got some good techniques i use from my classes to helpout especially using wiki's to your advantage

2004-07-12 [Sheona]: Really? You're welcome to add your techniques, too! If everyone adds what works for them, it will be a really good course that we can all learn from.

2004-07-14 [travs the bean]: i think that sounds good

2004-07-17 [pixyman]: Hi I'm a speech communication teacher (GTA) at SIUC in the USA. I'm teaching a section over the summer and will be beginning my second year of work in the coming semester. You need a COmm. Studies teacher... I can do that. [pixyman]
