Teaching effectiveness constitutes essential attributes.

by Ruth W. on 2022-01-03 for NCLEX Pharmacology Review (Nursing)

Style is entertaining. Repetition helps retention. Instructor's voice and diction are pleasant. Professor Lawes developed a highly effective didactic method. Obs: the question on who would I recommend this lesson to is grammatically incorrect. You may want to rephrase.

Thank you!
