5. TLTC Teaching Tip of the Week: Get to Know Your Students

Event Type(s): Other

Before starting a new class, take some time to learn your students' names. Addressing everybody in your class by name from the first day will help to improve the classroom climate and can give you an excellent rapport with your students. It will also foster greater faculty-student interaction as well as student to student interaction that can ultimately lead to an overall improved undergraduate experience. The University of Maryland UMEG site (http://ter.ps/817) offers class rosters with photos that can assist you putting a face to a name and vice versa. If you have trouble learning names see these helpful memorization tips - http://ter.ps/818.
