Abstract

Since you want to teach, I can probably assume that you want to teach well, that you want to make a difference, and that you want to become an expert at your job. There is a tendency to teach in much the same way as you were taught (Moallem 1998). If you were lucky enough to have an effective, expert teacher, that may not be a bad thing, but you have to remember that your teachers were probably trained many years ago. Expectations change, and some teachers are more expert than others. So what is it that makes an expert teacher?
