Higher Education teaching at its most literal level means educating; imparting knowledge is the most fundamental part of an instructor’s job. It is more obvious, though just as important, as inspiring, motivating and forming relationships.
But just like many other elements of the job, the act of being an instructor in higher education is personal. No two instructors are the same. The way you teach is unique to you and by teaching you bring yourself to the classroom: your personality, your experiences and your ambitions. Your pedagogy and your teaching style is shaped by these characteristics, influenced by your own education, and becomes the guide you use to teach your students.
