We the Teachers Should
Becoming a successful faculty
member at a Medical College or
any Institution is no trivial
undertaking. People are not born
knowing how to prepare and deliver
effective lectures, make good use
of the growing power of
Instructional technology,
Help the Students in Many ways
Write rigorous but fair
assignments and
exams, help students
deal with a
bewildering array of
academic and
personal problems,
build reasonably
good research
program, and
teaching assistants

Balancing life with
Balance the endless and
often conflicting time
demands imposed by
teaching, , service, and
personal life. It takes
most faculty members
long years of trial and
error to learn how to do
all that, and some never
quite figure it out.

Most of us are
interested in improving
something about
ourselves: our
productivity, our sanity,
our organization, our
happiness, our
effectiveness, our
impact on the
environment, our
minds, our dreams.
Every one is interested in improving the
world but few practice it ?
Teachers are no exception
Dr.T.V.Rao MD 5

Think to make make
better decisions -
decisions that
benefit yourself and
others - this leads to
more success in
business and
finances. You are
also more productive
when you're happy.
Think about making better decisions,
do not worry even if you fail?
Dr.T.V.Rao MD 7
Learn something ―new‖
each day to keep growing
intellectually. Stagnation of
thoughts will eventually end
up giving you a cesspool of
nothingness. Be curious.
Become growth oriented.
Always look for information
that enhances your
personal performance or
position in life. ―Lazy‖ is
not part of this process!
Learn something new every day
Dr.T.V.Rao MD 8
Our Main Job Is Teaching
[Lecture preparation]
On average, it should take two
hours to prepare a new 1-hour
lecture on material you know,
three at most; half-an-hour to
revise a 1-hour lecture; and
roughly 30 hours to prepare a 1-
hour interactive web lecture. If it
takes you much more than that,
you’re probably over preparing
(a common mistake made by new
faculty members).
Avoiding Overloaded Syllabus
Have several professors
independently analyse
the content of a course
and decide which topics
they would not include.
Those topics may
generally be considered
Over doing things
causes confusion

Many Teachers loose
interest in reading other
than what they are
supposed to Teach,
However Choose a book
that requires effort and
concentration and read
a little of it every day, so
that you read it from
cover to cover in 100
Read a book on something other than
you know
Dr.T.V.Rao MD 11
Use instructional
technology only for
tasks that are
essential to the
course and cannot be
done as well—if at
all—without it, and
when the added cost
of using it is
reasonable. If you
decide to use it and
you’re not an expert,
get help.
Use Instructional technology
Dr.T.V.Rao MD 12
Design tests so that
15–20% of the
material is covered
only in the lectures,
15–20% only in the
readings, and the
remaining 60–70% in
both. To make sure
that a test is not too
long, work through it
yourself and multiply
your solution
Design the Tests with Caution
and Practicability
Dr.T.V.Rao MD 13

When someone does or
says something that
upsets you, take a
minute to think over
your response instead
of answering right away
Teachers are targets for
criticisms Think how
much you are
responsible before you
React ?

A sense of humour can help
you become a successful
teacher. Your sense of
humor can relieve tense
classroom situations before
they become disruptions. A
sense of humor will also
make class more enjoyable
for your students and
possibly make students
look forward to attending
and paying attention
Create A Sense of Humour
Dr.T.V.Rao MD 15
Most importantly,
a sense of humor
will allow you to
see the joy in life
and make you a
happier person as
you progress
through this
stressful career.
Humour makes you Joyful
Dr.T.V.Rao MD 16
A consistent teacher
is the same person
from day to day. A
fair teacher treats
students equally in
the same situation.
For example,
students complain of
unfairness when
teachers treat one
gender or group of
students differently.
Be a Consistent Teacher
Dr.T.V.Rao MD 17
We should be friendly
but not become friends.
Friendship implies give
and take. This can put
you in a tough situation
with all the students in
the class. Teaching is
not a popularity contest
and you are not just
one of the guys or girls.
Always remember
Becoming friends with students
while they are in class.
Dr.T.V.Rao MD 18
Good teachers try
and try and try, and
let students know
they try. Just as we
respect students who
really try, even if they
do not succeed in
everything they do,
so they will respect
us, even if we are not
as good as we want
to be.
Good Teachers Really Want to
Be Good Teachers

Feed your mind with the
thoughts, words, and
images that are most
consistent with who you
want to be, what you
want to have, and what
you want to achieve.

Think positive avoid negative ideas
Thinking positive is the Best Option
Dr.T.V.Rao MD 20
We teachers have
something called
academic freedom.
Too many of us
interpret that to
mean the freedom
from firing. I love
taking risks. It
keeps some
excitement in what
is, after all, a pretty
placid profession.
Never Forget We are Gifted
Dr.T.V.Rao MD 21
I like to try
things that
can fail. If
there is no
chance of
failure, then

Do not bother
Dr.T.V.Rao MD 22
Become aware of the
differences between
how you treat others,
and how you treat
yourself. Are you
dismisive of
yourself? Do you
treat yourself with the
same respect that
you treat others?

How to Treat You

It sounds simple and
old, but it is absolutely
true. Often we don't
realise how sullen we
are. Consciously making
an effort to smile more -
even when you're alone
(especially when you're
alone) will increase your
general state of mind
Smile More – Complain less
Dr.T.V.Rao MD 26

We all come across
people who upset us or
make us angry. We all

Read about a
subject you wouldn’t
normally. This is a
great way to develop
a better
understanding of the
world. It will also
make you a more
interesting person in
the process.

Read and do some think new
Dr.T.V.Rao MD 28
There will be days
when you hear things
from students about
other teachers that
you just think are
terrible. However, you
should be
noncommittal to the
students and take
your concerns to the
teacher themselves
or to administration.
Ignore the Comments on other
Dr.T.V.Rao MD 29
I have noticed that
good teachers, when
they get really good
evaluations, don't quite
believe them. They

something bad about
them. They good

One of the tenets of
teaching should be that
everything is in a
constant state of
change. Interruptions
and disruptions are the
norm and very few days
are 'typical'. Therefore, a

your stress level but
also for your
