Top ten requirements for teaching

Here, are the top ten requirements for good teaching, by Dr.Richard Leblanc, York University.

     1. GOOD TEACHING is as much about passion as it is about reason.

     2.  GOOD TEACHING is about substance and training students as consumers
         of  knowledge

    3.   GOOD TEACHING is about listening, questioning, being responsive, 
          and remembering that each student and class is different.

   4.   GOOD TEACHING is about not always having a fixed agenda and being   
      rigid, but   being flexible, fluid, experimenting, and having the confidence to
      react and adjust to   changing circumstances.
   5.  GOOD TEACHING is also about style. Should good teaching be entertaining?
        You bet! Does this mean that it lacks in substance? Not a chance! Effective  
      teaching is not    about being locked with both hands glued to a podium
      or  having your eyes fixated   on  a slide projector while   youdrone on.
 6. GOOD TEACHING is about humor. This is very important. It’s about being self
     deprecating and not taking yourself too seriously.

 7. GOOD TEACHING is about caring, nurturing, and developing minds and

     talents. It’s about devoting time, often invisible, to every student.

 8.GOOD TEACHING is supported by strong and visionary leadership, and very

   tangible instructional support resources, personnel, and funds.

9.GOOD TEACHING is about mentoring between senior and junior faculty,

   teamwork, and being recognized and promoted by one’s peers.

10.AT THE END OF THE DAY, good teaching is about having fun, experiencing pleasure and intrinsic rewards…like locking eyes with a student in the back row and seeing the synapses and neurons connecting, thoughts being formed, the person becoming better, and a smile cracking across a face as learning all of a sudden happens.
It’s about the former student who says your course changed her life. It’s about another telling you that your course was the best one he’s ever taken.
Good teachers practice their craft not for the money or because they have to, but because they truly enjoy it and because they want to. Good teachers couldn’t imagine doing anything else.

engaged in.”
