Do you have any work experience? What subject would you like to teach and you think that you are capable of? Have a nice day. Simhan A retired academic in the UK

Mr. Simhan
Thankyou for the reply. yes i have non teaching work experience. I have not thought about which subject to teach. But if given option i can prepare myself for any subject related to graduate/post graduate qualification. Yes i feel i hav capability of going into academics.
Which subject to opt for? I am thinking of doing m.phil in Hr along with teaching

From India, Mumbai
Choose a subject in which you have some work experience. I have known teachers with no experience in HR teaching Hr, and so on. They are not effective at all. So, your claim that you can teach any subject is a bit of an exaggeration. Choose a subject that you feel passionate about. A tutor good at teaching HR will be hopeless in teaching operations management or finance.
Do you think you can teach Research Methodology without any experience of doing research?
If you are thinking of doing MPhil in Hr, that would be your option.

Recruiting is only a miniscule portion of the tasks undertaken by a HR person. Is that all the work experience you have? I am raising that question as most postgraduates in India do not have work experience before undertaking even MBA.
Where are you based?

From United Kingdom
Yes that is the only experience i have. I was a fresher when i opted for MBA. Suggest me, i want to become a good teacher. I want to get into teaching and research profesion. I stay in mumbai, India

My sincere advise to you is to work for a couple of years and then go to teach. These days you should be able to enrol for MPhil by distance learning.
I have taught along with nearly freshers and their lack of knowledge was apparent to students.

Subject - Re: want to become a faculty
To start teaching, as advised by others one should good experience in
the subject. You should gather knowledge not information. Secondly teaching is an art.You should observe delivery of good speakers as and when you will get an opportunity. After gathring knowledge of subject you like. YOu can start delivering lectures to small group of person. Which will create conifidence.
Follow this methodology you can become faculityr in years to come.

Thanks Ravi for the sound advice. Quite a few students completing MBA straight after a degree and having no work experience think that they can teach any subject even to postgraduates. May be they can, especially to students who like them join an MBA course without any experience.
I would like all of us to read an article by Prof. Kugel at and reflect on what we do as teachers and assess ourselves to judge at what stage of development as a teacher have we .
Have a nice day.
