My typical lecture engages students in a myriad of subjects within the field of psychology.
Teaching can and is bidirectional.
I have learned from my students as well as teaching them the fundamentals of basic psychology.
I learned that engaging my audience, one must consistently and methodologically attend to each person, even in a large classroom setting.
This means balancing out relevent questions while balancing the general knowledge of the classroom.
I have enjoyed the multicultural aspect of the management at this setting.
The most challenging part of this position was getting hired the day prior and having the responsibility to students to create syllabi and presentations and reading the required textbook to freshen up on what I was about to lecture.
The most enjoyable part of this job, like therapy, is knowing when a difference is made and a student actually learns from my lectures. I have been personally moved when students have taken the time out to thank me and explained that psychology was broken down to be understandable in what can be abstract and sometimes complex to undergraduate students.
