What Behavioral Changes Can I Make to Inspire Enthusiasm in My Classroom?

Most faculty have known instructors who are deeply inspiring. They bring a passion for their content, coupled with a strong desire to impart that passion, that ignites student interest and learning in their classes. By contrast, it is easy to think of professors who seem to have so little interest in their own lectures that they deaden enthusiasm for learning just by their lackluster presentation methods. Does this mean that in order to be an effective instructor, one must be a dynamic and charismatic public speaker? Thankfully, no. Explore the phenomena of emotional contagion and affective crossover, both rooted in the emerging science of emotion, to develop techniques that enable faculty to inspire students, foster enthusiasm, and motivate learning.
