Use a variety of methods for delivering content. Begin by communicating the objectives for the content on that day. Let students know what is being covered. Use 10-15 minutes of lecture. Lectures can be delivered in a variety of manners. Storytelling, case studies, and straight lecture are just a few delivery types. After completing a mini-lecture, break up the class to apply the content. This might include a hands-on demonstration and activity. It might be that the students solve a problem as a group. If there are several steps students need to follow, break it down to 5-8 steps. 

Greet each student and learn their names early on. Have them write their name on a "tent" so that each person can associate the name with the face. When taking roll, ask the student how to pronounce their name and if they have a nickname. Plan to give a short introduction with information about yourself, then a short activity so that the students can get to know each other better. 

It is important to know how the textbook presents the material, the supplimental materials that are available. Prior to meeting your students, look over the roster and identify names. As students come in, greet them. Be a person first, then the instructor.

From the moment we are planning our course to the moments we meet our students, we need to be mindful of the importance of modeling professionalism. We can also model passion for the content throughout the delivery of the content. Equally important, we need to demonstrate a genuine interest and attitude of caring with the students.

Can take on being a model, manager or motivator. Lead by example and be the professional example the students can model after. Ask for help and be prepared. 

An instructor needs to be a prepared, if not more, than what is expected of our students.  Knowing the information well and planning ahead helps with first day jitters but also gives the instructor more confidence to be prepared and ready for the students.  Arriving early and greeting students makes for personable interactions.

It is very important as the instructor, to be professional in every aspect of the instructional atmosphere.  Being a nursing educator, I feel it is important to demonstrate to the students their need to be punctual, dressed professionally, and use proper language.  My modeling this will set the standards required of them in the professional workforce.

Hello. I share with you an experience of collaborative work combining synchronous and asynchronous classes in university education. Greetings from Córdoba, Argentina.

Hello! From this fourth module I keep the following ideas: making teaching-learning strategies explicit (socialize them with the course), evaluation as a learning tool (not only for testing) and adapting the teaching proposals to the different technopedagogical profiles. Greetings from Córdoba, Argentina!

I liked the first video that was shown... you dont have to convince your students you are the most knowledgeable. Be humble. Convince them that you love the subject and the rest will follow. It is important to encourage and support our students and best to lead by example.
