Managing Class Time Effectively

"Managing Class Time Effectively" (online post) offers 6 specific time-management suggestions to "ensure the integrity of our teaching": 

1. "Begin each class meeting, as well as sessions following a break, on time."

  • "Delaying starting or re-starting the class simply invites more students to be late." 

2. "Develop and use an agenda for each class meeting."

  • "[I]dentify the approximate time each item should require, and stick to it." 

3. "Energize your class throughout each meeting with questions -- both rhetorical and didactic."
