I graduated with a BA in Psychology from the American University of Beirut in Lebanon. I’m currently pursuing my Ph.D. in Psychology – Behavior Analysis Training Area. I’m an adjunct lecturer at QC in the Psychology Department, currently teaching Psychological Disorders in Children and Adolescents. This Sunday will be my first class for this semester. I’m really excited to meet my students and to start teaching them all about the disorders. I’m especially excited because it would be my very first time teaching, having attended many talks about Pedagogy and the teaching of Psychology as well as conferences pertaining to that subject matter, I feel very confident about teaching.
I believe through out this year I will be covering topics pertaining to the “I wish I had known all of this before teaching”, I can convey this message accurately. I am also interested in talking abou the Adjunct – student interaction as well as using technology in class.
I’m really excited in reading other Adjunct’s experiences as well as posting mine, knowing that it would help a lot of other first timers like me.
Any suggestions for my first day of teaching?
