Reply To: Timing!! (tick tock tick tock)

I can relate very much to this issue, and it can become very stressful! I would say to definitely prioritize student-led discussion if they initiate it, and if it is constructive and relevant, of course. Practice always helps, but that might be a lot with all of the courses to teach… Have you ever timed yourself on a given day? This might give you an insight how long it takes “on average.” Perhaps give a feedback survey to the students and ask for their opinion on how you distribute amounts of time on certain things in class to know for sure.
