    Title: How to become an excellent teacher: Tips for classroom and online teaching!

    Presenters: Karin Graeml & Md Azizul Moqsud

    Location: Sproul Hall, room 309, Barrow Lane, Berkeley

    Abstract: Teaching is one of the most noble professions, because it helps conveying our society’s knowledge and values to new generations of citizens. However, being a good teacher is not an easy task, particularly in times of disruptive ideas and technologies. In this seminar we will discuss practices, qualities and teaching styles that can lead to more interesting classes and improved learning. Additionally, as distance learning becomes more prevalent, blended courses or completely online programs become an alternative to students and educators, that brings an additional set of good practices to be effective. Regardless of the environment in which the teaching/learning process takes place, good teachers are those that make the path to knowledge and wisdom a path that students are enthusiastic to take. We hope that this seminar brings you some insights about how to achieve that.
