Changing university teaching: reflections on creating educational technologies

Changing University Teaching: Reflections on Creating Educational Technologies Terry Evans and Daryl Nation

p58:

Good teachers display enthusiasm for their subject, and a desire to share it with their students.

Good teachers encourage deep learning approaches, rather than surface approaches, and are concerned with developing their students' critical thinking skills, problem-solving skills, and problem-appreach behaviours.

Good teachers recognize the importance of context, and adapt their teaching accordingly; they know how to modify their teaching strategies according to the particular students, subject matter, and learning environment.

Good teachers demonstrate an ability to transform and extend knowledge, rather than merely transmit it; they draw on their knowledge of their subject, their knowledge of their learners, nad their general pedagogical knowledge to transform the concepts of the discipline into terms that are understandable to their students.

Good teachers are also good learners; for example, they learn through their own reading, by participating in a variety of professional development activities, by listening to their students, by sharing ideas with their colleagues, and by reflecting on classroom interactions and students' achievements.

Good teachers set clear goals, use valid and appropiate assessment methods, and provide high-quality feedback to their students.

Good teachers show respect for their students; they are interested in both their professional and their personal growth, encourage their independence, and sustain high expectations of them.
