Suggestions on how to be an effective Masterclass moderator:
You might know most of this already...but we still need to remind ourselves. Please send in items to add to this list.

  • Speak clearly and succinctly
  • Show your sense of humor
  • Avoid explanations: draw ideas from students and then help them
  • Encourage students to speak up, give their views, and back them up
  • Mind the schedule
  • Be friendly
  • It is alright to disagree...with mentors, students, or each other
  • Let students get a feel for how you see data and analysis
  • Be familiar with the Masterclass measurement
  • Show your enthusiasm
  • Work as a team


Good advice with a CERN slant:
