I am thinking about teaching theory or NEC at a local college. And am thinking about using Mike Holt's books.

What are your thoughts on teaching? Any pointers or ideas will be appreciated.

Any other ideas on books that i can use as a text/work book?

Thank you for your inputs
Edward


Thanks

I love teaching. It is very satidfying when you look at the audiance and you know that they just learned something that they didn't know before.

Just be careful and don't burn yourself out...it is a lot of work. [Linked Image]

Thanks for the reply.
What material do you use? Do you make up study material or go off of a book?
How much experience do you need to teach to a group that does not know anything?

Edward


Thanks
Edward

Edward,
As a 20 year vet of the subject, you'll love it.... and learn a lot. You tend to develop not only your own style, but a lot of your own materials.

I use Soares and a Stallcup book for the first semester. I teach ONLY code in the 2nd and developed my own about 10 - 12 years ago. As in another thread here recently, Wheels of Learning is available to me, but I thought it very weak in the 4th year.

Go ahead, no matter what we say, you'll negotiate your own path, and I'm sure you'll do fine [Linked Image]

Enjoy.

I teach Basic Electricity and/or Basic Wiring at a local County Vo-Tech School. ADult Ed, night class. The School suggests Delmar (Thomas Kubala) for the text, as the following 3 classes utilize the same book.

Basic Elec. is theory, Ohm's Law, series/parallel circuitry, power, etc.
Basic Wiring is "basic" knowledge and some hands-on.

I have Mike's text, and am trying to get an OK to switch.

Teaching and sharing knowledge of the trade is a very satisfying thing to do.
