The good teaching characteristics of getting students to think for themselves, keeping discussions at appropriate levels, situating theory in reality and communication are explored within this paper. Indeed, it is argued that education professionals effectively utilizing these four characteristics can promote a positive and engaging learning environment for their students. Furthermore, the paper explores the rise of creative methods of teaching. In doing so, examples of how creative methods of learning have the potential to be positive tools for student engagement and understanding are presented. However, the paper also lends focus the potential pitfalls of creative methods, suggesting such activities have the potential to be viewed as beneficial only in the short term.
