The article discusses ways of effective classroom teaching in academic libraries. Most librarians teach as part of a bibliographic instruction program, but some find themselves teaching a class from start to finish, with a syllabus, grade book, and class evaluations. It is unfortunate that graduate education usually does not include training in teaching techniques and education theory. The result is, far too often, faculty members who are excellent researchers but who are ill-prepared for the classroom. The article gives various guidelines for effective classroom teaching e.g. a presenter should have a set tone, high pitch, great enthusiasm and a track of its audience. Personality holds the key for successful classroom experience. The article presents five steps including visualization, preparation, inspiration, invitation and evaluation to gain confidence in holding a class. It discusses seven habits of highly effective people that can be very helpful in controlling class in a effective way.
