Listening to Your Students: Professor Mark Hyde
A conversation with the 2010-2011 Joseph R. Accinno Teaching Award Recipient. "Effective teaching requires planning, preparation and organization -- setting clear learning objectives, developing effective assessment of those objectives, providing appropriate course material, preparing carefully for class meetings, and so on. But what teaching is about, ultimately, is student learning. From the student’s perspective, teaching is only the means to an end, their learning. By listening to your students carefully and in a variety of ways, you can determine with some precision how well you teach."
