teaching style

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

Just as pupils and students can be said to have differing learning styles, so teachers will vary in the style of teaching with which they are most comfortable. For example, where one teacher possesses the skills best suited to deliver a lecture to a large group of learners, another may feel that their strength lies in working at an individual level with small groups of learners, using such techniques as question and answer. Whatever the individual teacher's preferred teaching style, however, they are expected, as professionals, to develop and use a wide range of approaches and styles which are appropriate both to the needs of their learners and to the nature and level of their subject. Nevertheless, most teachers will admit to having a preferred style of teaching with which they feel at their most confident. See also method.
