Although each individual needs to find their own style, some elements stand out in my own experiences. I have categorized these into the 4 “Es”: Experience, Enthusiasm, Engagement, and Evolution. Experience can include observations as a student or how classes reacted to your lecture. These experiences can then form the basis with which to find your style. Enthusiasm is a must; if you find a topic dull and boring your students will as well. Personal examples, real world events, or videos can be used to demonstrate enthusiasm. Engagement involves the students in the learning process and helps them to understand what they do and do not know. Engagement can span in-class activities to leading part of a class. Finally, evolution involves not only updating lectures or topics year-to-year, but also reflecting on one’s style to see what is and is not working. I will discuss my own experiences with each of the 4 “Es”
