Believe it or not, I’ve never taught undergrads before. Sure, I’ve given the occasional lecture in someone else’s class, and I’ve spoken at many a college chapel service, but I’ve never taught a semester-long course at the college level.
This afternoon I begin teaching “Introduction to the Christian Scripture” at a state university.
I know that many of you, dear readers, have taught college courses, and I’m looking for advice. So far, I’ve been told to “own the room,” beginning with the first class. And that’s about it.
So, what advice do you have for me about teaching undergrads?
