    • Abstract

       

      This article is an attempt to put together my experiences gath-ered over the last six years of teaching biology. Since joining as a research faculty, I have learnt that teaching is a tough but extremely rewarding (both scientifically and emotionally) activity when done the right way. As research institutions across India are increasingly focused on imparting quality ed-ucation, I consider it imperative that every researcher aims to be a good teacher. I have been striving to be one, but at this point, I am far from it. In this article, I share my opinions based on my personal experiences. These experiences have helped me improve my teaching, as well as, connect better with the students—in the class, as well as, in the laboratory.
