What is Good Teaching ?

What is good teaching? Good teaching is a array of many elements , such as a good listeners, organization , a good intuition to pay attention to detail , and most of all understanding the teaching requirement from the needs of the industry and the needs of the classroom .And mostly I feel good teaching constitutes a good classroom management plan . Many teachers have very unique ideas on teaching especially if they are from industry such as CTAE teachers . We have the ability to transfer our industry training into a classroom setting with pizazz and experience ,this experience of hands on entices our student you want more, More of what CTAE teachers have to offer. However a good teaching with also embrace the learning instilled into us from NTI and run with it .

I agree with you.This is very close to what I posted. I think we have to develop teaching skills that incorporate what we have learned and a way to convey that knowledge to the student. Having a good classroom and lab management plan has been one of the best things I have done to help me and the class. In every type of learning environment you have to have organization and management. The students react very well to a structure they can become familiar with. Obviously, everything we have learner in NTI has helped to make us a better teacher.
