Some university professors can introduce themselves by having photos of their family and their life on PowerPoint, right?

  • Best Answer

    I suppose they could. 

    I never had any that actually did, though. 

    A few (maybe 5%) had a very short CV, similar to a paragraph introducing a speaker at a conference. Most went straight into the lecture, without introducing themselves at all, beyond "I'm Dr. Smith and this is Calculus 241; please leave now if you're in the wrong classroom."

  • Yes, of course, this is a common practice for many university teachers.

  • Sure! There are no rules about how you introduce yourself to students. I’ve never done that but I often share things like my hobbies if I feel like it.

  • I have never done that, but I suppose one could certainly do that.

  • I have attended 7 different colleges in my life, and earned a masters degree. I have NEVER had a teacher do such a thing. NEVER.

  • Why? Who does that? You're supposed to draw a line between your work and personal life. It's called professionalism.

  • I think so. I do some teaching at the local community college and I was encouraged to do that, but I declined.
