Here Below you can check out the feedback (for one of our units) of one of the 16.000 students that last year took an online course with ITTT!
Unit 10 uses two different videos in conjunction with one another (a shorter video followed by a longer video), to exhibit effective versus ineffective classroom practices. In the first video, the teacher does not present the information to the students in a way that they can understand. He comes off as unfriendly and easily agitated and as a result, the students appear intimidated and confused. In the second video, the teacher introduces himself, smiles, does not call out students for wrong answers, and is generally more approachable. He is more organized when presenting his lesson and takes time to assure the students are on the same page.
Watching the first video was painful. I’ve had some terrible teachers and some great ones. The combination of the two videos reminded me how important is to be understanding, patient, and flexible to make the learning environment comfortable. If students are too afraid to be wrong or ask questions, nothing is gained and the students tend to be disheartened from learning. Being prepared, yet flexible in your lesson plan, and being able to laugh with and relate to your students on a human level can have a huge impact in the quality of their education.
