Okay!! How does it sound, being in a place full of different faces, different thought processes, different needs, staring at you hoping to find answers to some unknown questions? Scary Right?
Yes, Indeed it is. It’s tough being a teacher. Being a graduate student and having years of schooling, I have realized how difficult being a teacher is when I received this opportunity to assist them. Yes, I realized working here at eCampus, how the teachers work hard to help students, how every student in the class they have matters to them, and how important is it for them to make sure every student gets benefits out of their classes.
Teaching requires you to have a job skill that combines the expertise required for many jobs. You should be a great presenter, an actor, an entertainer, a reporter, an examiner, a motivator, an artist, and the list goes on and why not? We have examples below to prove that:

We at eCampus provide resources to give your teaching skills just the right garnishing so that it can be showcased the right way to the world. When you have the passion to teach, why not just make it worth the while, why not enjoy doing it by getting the best out of it.
The Active Learning Certificate Program gives a nudge to your existing skills and also helps to endorse them. The program consists of varied workshops to help you know more about how to approach teaching in ways that engage your students. The focus is on implementing activities in your class to improve participation and collaboration and not just simply sit and listen the lectures.
The topics addressed in each workshop gives you the elixir of exemplary teaching. The program helps you understand the habits of mind, strategies to deepen student collaborations, recommendations of ways to induce brainstorming, build connections, techniques for using groups effectively in class, methods behind the art of explaining concepts by real world examples, ideas for managing the class timing, references for preparing tests the optimal way, strategies for improving class outcomes, and additional tips.
This program was offered this spring, and we had a diverse cohort of instructors who participated and took a step closer to support their passion for teaching. View the list of faculty members who joined the program during Spring 2019:
