How can I develop myself as a teacher?
Reflect after each class
Taking time after each class session to consider what went well and what could be improved can help you prepare for the next class and prepare for future courses. Consider:
- Did students have lots of questions?
- Did I time things well?
- Did I accomplish my goals?
- What could I do better next time?
Ask for feedback from others
An impartial observer can help you focus on your students’ learning experience and provide useful feedback. Ask your faculty supervisor (if you are a TA) or a departmental colleague to observe your class and give you feedback.
