I am a carpenter with 30+yrs. experience in the construction imdustry, mainly doing residential finishes. I received my degree in construction technology from SUNY Delhi in 1991. I have been given the opportunity to expand my career with a teaching position to share my knowledge and expertise. I am new to teaching and am eager to learn. The techniques I have already learned from this program I have already started to utilize and have been greatly beneficial to me and my students. I am looking forward to learning more in the upcoming courses.
Knowing how to question students properly will be effective instructional tool. Students stay focused being involved in the learning process.
I plan on showing more enthusiam twards the materal,asking more of the student ie. questions,feedback ect. adding stories.I will incorperate the strategys to avoid the mid corse slump to help...
As a new Instructor finding that raising a students self respect will help with learning and classroom enviroment is great. Methods I learned will be molded into my teaching techniques.
Finding real career expations from students will help me bring more to the table in the class room as well in the lab.
