Karajan Posted September 24, 2013 Share Posted September 24, 2013 (edited) Hey guys -- Here's a question about answering student questions. Say it's the day before your undergrads' exam, and you're being flooded with questions from your students. Many of their questions can be answered by either a) looking at the textbook/their lecture notes or searching online. Do you answer those types of questions, or tell them to look up the answers themselves? I'm new to teaching, and tend to want my students to have the answers they need straightaway, but I feel like I'm being a push-over by answering all of these questions I *know* they can answer on their own; I may even be doing a disservice to them by not forcing them to be independent and self-sufficient. What's your take? [based on a true story!] Edited September 24, 2013 by Karajan Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
