I thought the Youtube video clips on using Learning Theories were very useful at the beginning of the course PIDP 31oo as it put the theories into context. I have chosen the behaviourism learning theory as an example but they have also made videos on constructivism and cognitivism.
I agree with the great tips that Maria Orlando describes in her article in Faculty Focus on Nine Characteristics of a Great Teacher. Respect, sense of belonging and enthusiasm as well as being a skilled leader are really important qualities of a great teacher. I plan to continue to work on those qualities in my career.
