Student Voices

What does effective teaching look like to you?

Effective teaching is the encouragement of students in a safe space. It is being aware of visual, spatial, and auditory differences as well as individualistic styles of learning. It is also enabling students to crave a desire to grow and be challenged by a course’s material. When students feel both comfortable and passionate in an environment with a figure who does not abuse their power in the space, effective teaching is at play.
