  13. 13. What Will You Teach?Ask Yourself: What do people ask me for advice about? What topicdo you love and want an excuse to research further (yes, you canteach something you’ve just learned yourself!)?Fill in the blank: After my students leave my class, they’ll know how to__________________________.
  14. 14. Who Will You Teach?Ask Yourself: Whose problem is the skill that I’m teaching solving?Who’s my obvious - and not so obvious - audience?
  15. 15. Pre-Class PrepAsk Yourself:• Are there prerequisites for my students (i.e., are there certain things they should know or have done before)?• What resources (i.e., videos, articles) will I share with my students to prepare them for class and/or what activity can my students do to come ready to dive in during class (i.e., compile work they’ve done before, put together an outline / initial plan)?
  16. 16. In-Class InteractionAsk Yourself:• What will your class structure / type be (i.e., field course, hands-on project workshop, case study review, discussion group, etc.)?• What activity or experiment can you give your students to work on to ensure they learn by doing and collaborating? Tip: make it challenging, not frustrating!
  17. 17. Post-Class EngagementAsk Yourself:• What will your students’ homework be? In other words, how will they apply what they’ve learned in class?• How will you learn from this experience, too (i.e., solicit students’ feedback, apply constructive criticism)?
