Teaching Styles
18

All Powerpoint: Easy for instructor, great for


refresher courses, Not conducive to learning new
material
All on White Board: difficult to draw some
diagrams, photos are even harder
Mixed Model: Take advantage of technology, but
not at the expense of learning

Example 3-3: Supernode


19

Solution:

Determine: V1 and V2

Optimum Learning Process


21

Before Class: (1) Print a copy of PPT slides for the


chapter (from Canvas) and place in a 3-ring PPT
binder. (2)Review material from last class , and look
through the next 15 slides. (3)Make sure you have
read the book sections assigned on syllabus
In Class: Take notes and write observations on hard
copy of PPT slides, do not sit back passively
After Class: Add notes to your PPT binder, from
memory and the book; to be effective, this should
happen within 24 hours after the lecture
