This series is about becoming a "great" instructor, one who makes a difference in someone's life. I have been teaching for almost 50 years and I'm proud of the work I've done, and the impact I've had on the lives of my students. I know what it takes to succeed—to be the best you can be. You have the awesome responsibility of educating the next generation, and I want to share the experience and wisdom I've gained so that you too, can learn how to make a difference, and change lives. I trust that you'll find new and fresh ways to reach and engage your audience, and reexamine your commitment to education.

This series of videos is extracted from Mike Holt's Becoming a Great Instructor video program. The principles are universal, in that they apply to any mentoring situation, and not just to students in the classroom.

6 of 20: The Presenter
The Instructor's responsibility is to lead, and help the students have a great learning experience. This is achieved by making sure that you:
  • Have the right material
  • Are properly trained
  • Show them what to do, where to go, and how to get there

It's important to use a professional program which is mapped out for you, complete with lesson plans, illustrations and questions, so that you can focus on your teaching. Your job is to make your students feel welcome, believe that you respect them, and know you'll treat them fairly.
