Teaching is a dynamic and continuing interaction occurs in a supporting environment between teacher and students based on sharing ideas, knowledge, experience and mutual respect whereby the students gets the benefit of the learning, while the teacher gets credit for the teaching. As teaching a dynamic process, I need to improve my teaching and increase student motivation and involvement by making myself accessible to students in and outside the classroom and getting feedback from them. Face to face contact or time delayed task will be used inside the classroom. To motivate students to express their own ideas and feel safer, computer conferencing and an e-mail list will be used for regular exchanges of information and question outside the classroom. This will help the students finishing the course with a greater knowledge and appreciation of food safety.
