Effective teaching tips for teachers
- Use technology to teach
In higher learning courses, the academic subjects become complex and detailed. Understanding the applicative and theoretical topics from the textbooks becomes difficult for students. Therefore, teachers should not limit their teaching to textbooks.
Using online teaching apps and sites, teachers can access several audio-visual tools like educational videos, modules, demonstrations, picture cards, PowerPoint presentations, and more. With the help of visualization, students tend to understand the concepts better and quicker. Also, teachers can access online quizzes, riddles, and puzzles to make practice and test sessions more interesting, fun, and engaging for students.
- Develop a website for supporting students better
In higher learning courses, the academic subjects become complex and detailed. To be a helping hand to students, developing your website is beneficial. Research well, make proper study material, and upload the same on your website. Provide access to this website to students, so that they can have quality self-studies.
Also, on your website, you can publish blogs and articles related to study hacks and tricks for learners. You can also upload your recorded lectures here. This way students can watch these educational videos for better academic understanding and exam preparation. Sell online courses from your own website to expand your teaching business and financial growth.
- Ensure proper doubt resolution
In higher learning courses, the academic subjects are complex, and hence facing doubts is common among all students. To be an effective teacher you must ensure a proper doubt resolution in your class. In every class, once done with the teaching topic, allow students to ask doubts one by one.
You can tell students to press the hand raise option of the education app and ask doubts one by one. You can give a written explanation of the doubts by using the chat box facility. Also when exams are near, you can plan to conduct a few separate doubt sessions for students. Here you can re-teach the tougher topics and provide students with a clear understanding of the syllabus.
Tips for students
- Attend the classes regularly
Along with teachers, students need to put in the effort to complete the higher learning courses. To do well in higher learning courses, maintaining regularity and punctuality in online classes is very important. By being irregular to the classes, students not only miss the topics being taught on that particular day but also their understanding of further lessons is affected.
To avoid this happening with you, make sure to avoid unnecessary absenteeism. Also, join the class link on the exact time to be punctual. This will help students to receive a quality education, be a part of all learning activities, and get doubts resolved instantly.
- Learn from a suitable space
Online education gives students the privilege to learn from their convenient places. But if students learn in a noisy, disturbing, and distracting place, focusing in the class becomes difficult. To avoid this happening to you, make sure to join the classes from a distracted-free place. This will help you to concentrate in the classes properly, be participative and give an active response.
