Advising policies.

It is an eye opening to know how important and advising is to retain a student. it is more than a policy at my instutution.

Student Retention

We were all students once. I like how this module rewires us to be on the other side with considerateness

Keep Students Engaged

Keep students motovated in these difficult times.


I strive to be the best instructor I can be.  That means motivating the hardest to reach.  Thanks for the info.  

Students should feel secured and be motivated in class

Instructors can motivate adult students by enhance security and autonomy in the classroom

Insightful guidance


I am grateful for the guidance, inspiration and resources available to help inspire and provide more opportunities for growth. I am grateful for the slides, video and audio options that were provided in the material.­­­­­

empathy and understanding

Learning is a two way street. I like it when i was able to understand where my student are coming from. It may take time but it is worth listening. When you listen, not only did they able to respect you but more so, they able to return such respect and become engage in the subject matter that was being thought.



Motivating students

Providing autonomy and security forms the building blocks that allow student motivation to flourish. Regular feedback and encouragement go a long way in reinforcing students' motivation to succeed in class.

Verbal praise

The more I verbally praise a student in front of their peers they strive to keep a high level of competance. Critisism is always done privately but I phrase it as how to do it better next time.


Making the class fun, keeping them engaged, and being consistent will keep them interested and wanting more. I like to speed time them, play cosmetology hangman and charades.

Valuable Information

I feel this course had good ideas and strategies for engaging students.  It will change how I think about this topic and provide assistance in developing new activities.

Best Practice make Perfect.

Its the first impression and the way you implement the stratagies that makes the classroom and nice enviorment/ culture.


This lesson has taught me to remember that the students may have a different perspective about learning than mine.

Motivation of students

Being motivated to the student has always be my goal, but from modal Ed102 I have realize that I need to reboost myself sometime in the course of teaching.  Student can be stimulated only if the instructor is truely engaged.  My challenge to myself is to set goals to remotivate myself when my energy get low in the course of a class.

Active and Passive Listening

I am usually quick to respond to students questions, however this module discussing students as the customer reminds staff and faculty to use their therapeutic communication skills. We should be pausing and asking open ended questions prior to responding to our students. This demonstrates a caring attitude and genuine interest in their education.


i will use this in class for compatition 

Student retention action plan

I completely agree with the idea that we need to demonstrate the connection between what we are teaching and the students' future careers. As a math teacher, it is easy to fall into a flow of just teaching math, but students really do appreciate understanding how they will use the math later. The challenge is that some of the math is in the curriculum to allow them to continue with their studies if they choose to go to a traditional university and take algebra 1 so it does not have a career application beyond "you might need this if...".

Modeling the way is key in helping students to learn professionalism.

I will ensure that my syllabus has clarity and that I demonstrate enthusiam in presentation of material and provide various educational methodologies.
