Anyone who is nervous about presenting and teaching… I can attest to the fact that the 2nd time doing it is much smoother. You feel more confident and the nerves are less on edge. I can actually sleep the night before a class now.
Also, you tweak your lessons and rearrange them to better fit your goals and objectives.
Yes, there is still lots of planning and reviewing but it is a much better experience and I’m sure next term will be even greater. So go out there and present a topic you are very knowledgeable about or sign up to teach a class. If I can do it then you most certainly can.
Excited to start my next term teaching. I wasn’t AS nervous as the first time, but I did feel anxious. The most embarrassing first day though was on Monday. I have been fighting food poisoning and was sweating buckets through my whole class. At least I can laugh at myself.
I already feel more confident in the material I am presenting and have incorporated more tutorial time into the classroom.
I just hope that I can keep it interesting enough during the lecture parts. I would much rather be having them learn the programs and doing assignments.
Wish me luck!
Gosh I love Steam Punk!

Ok I REALLY, REALLY enjoyed teaching my first college course after I got over the initial fright of the first two weeks. My class had a mix of Freshman-Juniors, 18-mid-twenty year olds, introverts and extroverts, go-getters and procrastinators. By the second half I knew exactly how I was going to approach the class in the Fall and change it up. We spent the second half working on teams doing real world assignments and we got to tour some really different design companies.
They did wonderful work and I am a proud professor.
Bring on Summer Break!
This is a cool perspective and illusion. Once you realize what it is it is quite claustrophobic in nature.
Some fabulous women I know through the Digital Social Media world are putting on the 2nd Annual
