's preferred teaching style:
As a teacher I perform several functions, including providing a safe emotional environment that promotes good thinking; guiding the student through research; helping the student to solve learning problems. I strive to find the right balance between 'lecturing' and stimulating and supporting the student to think critically while exploring the written word and knowledge.
I try to present this material in more than one way to reach individual learning styles. Using visuals helps with this. Like so many other educators moving away from the 'chalk and talk' has become necessary. Presenting lectures must involve the students as much as possible so I present theory in short bits and then encourage thinking and questioning and sharing of their own thoughts and reactions and experiences in order for them to connect with the material.
Practical exercises and activities are included where helpful and relevant; as is group work.
In general I strive to have a lecture time that is stimulating and varied in presentation and process.
