As a graduate student, I had some really good experience with a great professor who consistently delivered the most interesting and informative science lectures. This professor was very involved in her research and reading, and she used different approaches in both courses (thesis and lab) to help us understand and learn about the subjects.
One of the best things about my PhD course was that the lecturer was extremely active, which meant that I enjoyed my good experience in their lab, and I learned a lot from them as well. I thought I would share with you some things that helped me learn the most. Keep in mind that the techniques they used are not the only ones used by lecturers and that good teachers make the class fun for their students.
The best way to learn science is by doing experiments and making observations. You don’t just read about science and only learn it in reading. Students should take part in the lab activities, get familiar with the tools and take part in the practical experiments. This will help them understand the basic principles and work on solving problems that they may encounter in their future careers.
The lecturers also need to be able to motivate their students, but they don’t need to be overbearing. Good lecturers tend to encourage their students and listen to their ideas, so you should try to imitate them. If your lecturer has a problem with this, then he or she needs to communicate their concerns.
A bad lecturer, however, might hold you back if they do not listen to you. Some lecturers are mean, and are not good communicators. They could also fail to communicate their concerns with you, and this could prevent you from learning more about the topic that you are studying. Make sure that your lecturer is able to interact with you, and explain their views and opinions.
Make sure that you are well prepared before hand, and that you have all the required equipment with you. You also need to consider what to wear to your lecture. Science is constantly changing, and sometimes your outfit will not match up with the outfit of your lecturer. These are just general tips that will help you learn the most.
As a graduate student, you will definitely encounter new topics in your field. What’s the best way to learn about these new topics?
