I thought I was a natural teacher but only got mediocre reviews to last years lectures. Maybe I have a lot to learn and its not so easy after all.
I decided to re learn how to give lectures and attended one by a colleague
Wow. I think I know what I’m doing wrong. I try and pack in way too many slides. She only showed around 20 slides and she went into detail with each one giving a calm sense of how we can break down things and understand them
I’ve just looked at my last two lectures. 50 slides in the first one, 45 in the second one!
She also :
showed a lot of videos, said what she was going to say before saying it, mapped information to diagrams, broke things down and categorised them, nice animations of processes that she spent sufficient time on explaining.
