Spoon Feeding

Yes I will admit it, I try to make things easy for my students to be able to grasp the concepts and for assessment preparation. I think because I have a view of how I would like to learn and how I want to deliver a course, I try to ensure that I cover all three learning styles with my approach to teaching. I send my students video links on the topics covered, extended notes, exercises, powerpoint presentations and sometimes summary notes. The funny thing is that no matter how much information I give to them, some students just would not take advantage of it. I realised this when I started lecturing in 2008.

  1. The problem with spoon feeding is that student lose their ability to think for themselves. So they pass the exams and when they begin to work and come across problems they become a liability.
