Help Me Be A Better Teacher

Thomas Whitley

As most of you probably know, I begin my teaching career tomorrow morning with my first class as an adjunct professor at Gardner-Webb University. I am both excited and a bit nervous. Over the years I have developed my own personal philosophy of teaching and higher education that has been influenced by all of the teachers, professors, and classroom experiences I have had (both good and bad), but right now I am curious about what you could add to that. So, I want to ask you a few question, since you have all been in some sort of classroom setting at some point:

  1. What are the things that you've loved about a teacher/professor of yours?
  2. What are the things that you've hated about a teacher/professor of yours?
  3. What was/is your biggest motivation in a class?
  4. What other general advice do you have to offer this neophyte?

I look forward to reading your responses.
