The fundamental goal of teaching is to have students learn through a variety of methods--lectures, researching, writing, video, discussion, and technology. An effective method of teaching is to present the information in a variety of formats and to engage the students in a variety of ways, and consequently to give them the opportunity to interact with the material, internalize it, see it as relevant, and remember and understand it.

I prefer to base class activites on the presumption that everyone is familiar with the material, and spend time either showing examples that reinforce the material, or better yet, have in-class activities that reinforce the material. I try to relate the class content to things to which the students can relate. I try to keep things as casual as possible to encourage discussion, and I solicit feedback as much as possible.

Application is learning. Application provides the integration of knowledge and physicality. As a student, it is critical to challenge one's self to be open to new ideas and experiences. It is also critical to learn your personal learning strategies and style and shape your learning experiences to best fit that style, for maximum retainment.
