Online Office Hours: Do Students Influence How We Teach?

In this episode of Online Office Hours we continue to reveal the some of the secret life and habits of a college professor. Miriam wondered if students influence how we teach or if we see them as passive learners each term. The answer is — at least in our classrooms — of course students influence our teaching style! But how they influence it varies every term.

Check out the video to hear some of the ways we figure out what a class needs, and how we learn to make adjustments when we have to. Sometimes being a professor is treated like a secret world. We think that the more students understand how things work from our side to the classroom, the better the course will be for everyone.
