I learned so much while teaching at Georgia Perimeter College, which is in Dunwoody, Georgia, just north of Atlanta. This includes the following:
1) It is challenging teaching a broad range of students from all over the world. Georgia Perimeter showcases students from far away places such as Africa, Europe, Asia, Central America, and the like. Students from America are from states such as Michigan, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Alabama, Virginia, Ohio, California, and Florida.
2) The importance of including several strategies and techniques to enhance student learning. Students learn visually, audibly, and by doing. Thus I share information by including computer technology, including PowerPoint applications and video clips. What's more, I make it a point to have small group discussions, ask Socratic questions, and riveting examples.
3) Listening closely to students' comments. They typically vocalize what they like and don't like. This is not to suggest I am a people pleaser and waver from my ultimate goals. To the contrary, I look for trends and change when necessary for maximum results in the classroom.
