Tips and tools for new teachers

I plan to use many tips and tools learned in this course. I like the idea of learning all students names and background. I also like the idea about using notecards to provide anonymous feedback. 

A motivational person in my students eyes.

I feel if I have a positive attitude and because I’m a new instructor and they see that I am putting my best efforts into all that I am teaching them I hope they will be motivated  to do the same .

A fine line

I find this hard to do with a large group of students.

ED410 Training

I enjoyed learning how the flipped classroom promotes constuctivism and promotes social/collaborative learning. Learners talk among themselves and share their understandings, feelings, knowledge, and experiences to come up with new knowledge. While as the educator, I become the facilitator to encourage the learners to interact, exchange views, and experiences then construct (come up with) meaning and knowledge that is based on what they already know. 

Name tags

Will have name tags, it's hard to learn there name with facemask on.


It is important to know your students immediately. Know their names is a reflection of respect.

strategies for student retention

treating students with dignity and respect and more Importantly acknowledging the unique learning needs of non traditional students will contribute to their success


I talked to one of my colleges today about observing a class where they combine two different levels of learners to enhance the course learning outcome.

The Maxknowledge allows instructors to take initiative to be sure that each student understand the assignments and work to meet their goals for their career.  Students need to have self-discipline and take responsibilty for their actions. The instructors play a big part in being and staying positive with their body language so that the student will study in a comfortable environment.

Students Feedback is valued

The value of student impact is key.

Student empowerment

Students have the ability to explore careeer choices and selecting their career path is meaningful to them.  The student has control of their future.


Keep their focus by relaying your medical experiences!

I know I can rely on student success if the students get up and relay what they know to us, for example, telling the class what the pathway of blood through the heart is.

This gives other students motivation to learn and better feedback! Competition is healthy and reliable.


It is important to show encouragement, concern, and empathy for each student.  They are on a path of self improvment, and we should facilitate that.

Empowerment thru Motivation

Empowerment thru motivation is well and powerful phrase. it can go a long way because when you are confident of your teaching methods you tranfer that confidence in learning to your students.


Enhancing Student Retention

As a novice clinical insructor it is a challenge learning the content of the work and delivering the materials effectively.  But form this lesson I have learnt the factors to keep students motivated and delivering clear and accurate insrtuctions is very important.My action plan is to use more varied activities, not to make students feel insecure .  Now being aware of the inrinsic factors that motivate students I will focus on these things.

The difference between to learning behaviors Instrinsic/Extrinsic learning

Both learning behaviors have a common goal to learn at their own pace with the intentions of gaining self security and accomplish some sort of recognination , it can ether be from within or a public recognition.

ED144 Student Empowerment

The course gives great content and ideas for encouraging more involvement by the students. It does also outline the importance the the instructor has in making the students feel empowered by their learning.  Definitely worth the time and useful for helping understand how to help the students be more successful in attaining their carreer goals through education.


Encouragement can follow failure or success. 

Know Your Stuff

The more you know about your subject matter, the more confident you are to speak on the content in front of students.

Students sense confidence and nervousness. I overcame nervousness during my undergraduate experience by over preparing for everything and it really helped me to succeed.

Of course, there will always be challenges in every aspect of teaching and learning. As long as you plan ahead and think about many contingencies, you should be fine.

Motivating Adult students.

This training has been very helpful in giving tips such as waiting to give the instructor time to respond better and also motivating students with rewards from time to time but not overdoing it and helping students maintain security and autonomy in different ways.
