Dr. Hemmick is a proponent of the lecture method of content delivery. He uses a number of strategies to make his lectures more engaging. He makes personal connection with the audience using eye contact and even uses this to re-engage students who are not paying attention. He consciously demonstrates his passion for his field during his lectures which he finds gets the students excited and engaged. He varies the pace, tone and volume of his voice during a class. He uses storytelling to relate the theory to real world experiences. He also discusses how to create stories that are appropriate to a field. Tom uses humor to lighten the stress in the classroom. He suggests faculty get some formal or informal training in the performing arts to improve their teaching. He finds that movement around the stage, into the audience and by gesturing creates a connection with the students. Dr. Hemmick uses his mistakes as great opportunities for teaching as students tend to remember those events. He also commonly admits that he doesn’t know an answer and attempts to work out solutions with the students. He believes that once attention is established it is important to use it to determine if students are grasping the material. He suggests one identifies students who have obvious body language or behavioral “tells” that indicate they do not understand the material and use them to monitor the class. He also uses frequent questions as a diagnostic of student understanding.
