Nine Essential Traits of the Effective Professor

2,714 views

Published on

What one faculty trait do students consider most essential to effective teaching? Memorial University of Newfoundland named several such traits by categorizing a broad range of student-identified characteristics from both their online and face-to-face courses. Interestingly, the same nine faculty traits appeared in both arenas, though there were differences in the importance of some. Whether teaching in the classroom or online, we will explore practical ways of fostering these nine characteristics and discuss the benefits. Participants will pair together to commit to specific techniques and discuss how their classrooms could benefit.
