New to Teaching
If you have never taught before and are nervous about standing in front of a group of people, don’t worry. The students are there because they want to hear what you have to say about your subject. Adult learners are more forgiving and generous than typical school or college learners. Project your voice well, be as clear as possible, know your subject, and you’ll do well.
You will also discover that teaching is a two way process and that you will also learn more than you will have anticipated about your own subject! Class size is usually around 15–20 students. Most departments will have a minimum number of required students before a course can be allowed to run, but this is often very low.
