Are your student teams running smoothly, or do they sometimes look like this?
We asked first year students "What is the most important attribute of an effective college professor?" The emerging theme? Affective qualities were mentioned twice as often as teaching skill and ten times more often than instructor knowledge and intelligence. This week’s post offers ideas for incorporating teaching practices in line with the Top 5 student-identified attributes:

4. Helpful & supportive
5. Clear communicator
