Communication: It can either build a school community up or tear it down. As instructors, you set the tone in the classroom by how you approach your work and students. Through your actions, you communicate your character, credibility, and convictions. Today’s students need to be convinced about your passion before they put passion into their own work. To be an effective instructor, you must learn how to connect with your students and understand the benefits of effective communication to support stakeholder relationships, build school culture, and provide different channels to keep all informed.
