Neher: A Word on "Good Teaching"

  • Teaching is not a natural gift, but is an acquired talent based on specific steps and skills which can be learned.
  • Teaching is dependent on how knowledge is shared, not your level of knowledge.
  • Capture teachable moments; teaching is not synonymous with lecturing.
  • Target your learners' needs while demonstrating your own strengths.
  • Be satisfied with small teaching achievements.
  • Don't expect too much of yourself each time you teach.
