Engaging students in the classroom is really hard.
Here's the thing.
Most professors got A's when they were students. We were good at school. We loved to read. We loved to learn.
Unfortunately, WE are the outliers.
Most students aren't like us. They don't necessarily care about school or the subjects. School isn't easy or fun.
So we have to approach students with a completely different mindset. We can't just expect them to come ready and show enthusiasm (like we did!).
Instead, professors need to think more like marketers. Marketers are experts at understanding, reaching, and engaging their target audience.
When you understand this system, which we call the LEARNER EXPERIENCE, it will radically change the way you teach your students.
Teaching College Masterclass is a 13-lesson course based on proven ideas for reaching and engaging audiences. This program can be accessed anytime (24/7 from any digital device). With each lesson, you'll get an 8-minute video walking you through ONE critical area related to teaching. This includes: the ONE thing you need to prepare before even thinking about the syllabus; the only three lesson formats you'll ever need; the ten fundamental activities that engage students; how to make sure students actually "get" what you're teaching; AND MORE.
Each lesson comes with its own implementation guide, transcripts, and downloads! You can easily watch all 13 lessons in one sitting and implement the approaches, strategies, and techniques immediately.

Here’s What You’ll Get When You Sign Up
Once you enroll, you'll get an email with your login details and immediate access to all 13 lessons plus the BONUSES. You can watch all 13 lessons in less than TWO hours.
Plan to spend at least another few hours to put the TCM system into action—i.e., apply the approaches, strategies, and tactics to your own course. Don't worry. We have templates, implementation guides, and a step-by-step process to walk you through. BOTTOM LINE: With TCM, you can plan your WHOLE semester in 2 TO 3 DAYS.
Higher Student Engagement
You'll tap into the students' mindset and understand exactly what resonates with them. This will help you plan and teach engaging lessons.
Confidence in Your Instruction
You'll have a system that can be duplicated across all your courses, year after year. No more wondering, "Will students find my lesson boring?"
Teaching College Masterclass is designed to help you intrigue, inspire, and motivate your students the same way marketers do: By understanding your target audience.
Higher Evaluation Scores? Possibly.
Many professors who have implemented the Teaching College approach say they get higher evaluation scores from students. Imagine the impact you could have too.

Dr. Eng shows us how we can deliver more impactful presentations. The bottom line is that as faculty, if we are going to spend the time amassing content to help students learn, we should be mindful of how that information is presented in ways that maximize their learning.

About The Course Creator, Norman Eng, EdD
Dr. Eng's book, TEACHING COLLEGE: The Ultimate Guide to Lecturing, Presenting, and Engaging Students, has helped thousands of professors learn and implement the mechanics of instruction. It is based on insights he learned as an advertising executive and a NYC public school teacher; the biggest of which is this: If you don't understand your target audience, you won't be able to reach (let alone teach) them.
YOU are the content expert. With the Teaching College Masterclass, Dr. Eng helps you package your content in a way that students care about.

Jesse Kavadlo, PhD
Professor, English & Humanities, Maryville University of St. Louis
[Dr. Eng's] presentation embodies the best practices that he preaches: with his effective tone and pace, cogent supplemental materials, and remarkable visuals, Dr. Eng was, according to many of our faculty, an excellent resource.
Lecturer, Writing, Clemson University
I walked away from the course with numerous insights for planning smoother courses in the future, but I also started immediately implementing strategies to engage my students, plan lessons, and facilitate discussions the next day.
Your lesson on [Knowing Your Target Audience] coincided with Martin Luther King Holiday, so I showed the students his "I have a dream" speech and asked them, "What dream do you have for your children?" It was eye-opening and helped me understand the students better!
The Teaching College Masterclass Difference
Most teaching workshops and professional development programs focus on the "what," not the "how." They tell you things like:
- "Be responsive to your students"
- "Incorporate activities and discussions"
- "Provide clear directions and expectations"
None of that really helps. But what if you could get the step-by-step training on the exact process Dr. Norman Eng and other master teachers use in their own courses? And you can learn it all in one afternoon, rather than weeks or months, like some programs? A course like this, with all 5 bonuses, would normally cost $3100.
For institutions, upwards of tens of thousands of dollars. Now you can get all this for a fraction of that. See below.
100% Satisfaction Guarantee for 30-Days
If you buy the Masterclass and it is not what you expect, then request for a refund within 30 days. 100% money-back guaranteed.
There is NO risk to you.
You can try one lesson, see if it's right for you, and decide. All we ask is you try to apply the ideas to your course. We've seen this system, its strategies, and its tactics help thousands of professors across the world. You won't lose ANYTHING by trying out the Teaching College Masterclass.

[Dr. Eng's] key message of understanding your students—just as marketers understand their clients—was valuable as we begin our next semester of teaching. Thank you for sharing all of the resources with us and inviting us into the online collaboration and Facebook page.

Dr. Eng has initiated me into the world of 21st-century teaching.
Dr. Eng’s Masterclass takes new college instructors systematically through the secrets of top instructors, lessons plans and formats that will excite your students, technical advice on how—and how not—to use Powerpoint, and finally, the best ways to check on the fly whether students are 'getting it.'
I think the material is FANTASTIC! ... The videos are engaging and beautifully - paced... especially appreciated the sections where you encourage instructors to focus on main ideas and content.
Instructor, Early Childhood Education
Norman's system for teaching simplifies everything. I can take care of planning on Sunday and focus on my other stuff the rest of the week. The student Avatar lesson alone is worth the price - it made me think of my teaching from a student's perspective in everything I do...
Frequently Asked Questions
You can definitely go online and find everything about instruction—for cheap or for free. But with so much out there, you’ll have to separate the good from the bad. Who’s got the time? More importantly, you’re on your own. YOU have to search for the right topics. YOU have to test it. YOU have to refine it. And try again.
With my premium course, you have a SYSTEM. Everything you need, from planning to teaching to assessing. And we’re guiding you all the way, step-by-step, so it’s much more hands-on and immersive than any book or workshop. All you have to do is follow this system. It’s your shortcut to success.
Yes. The Teaching College Masterclass is based on best business marketing practices for getting and keeping audiences engaged, including:
- Know your target audience (before ever setting foot in the classroom!)
- Focus relentlessly on experiences, not content (THIS is the key to engagement)
- Get audiences to engage in the first few minutes of interaction (this builds long term engagement)
- Cultivate a community
- And much more...
The bottom line is that marketers focus on the audience, whereas most professors fixate on content. Once you change that mindset, EVERYTHING becomes easier.
This approach works whether you teach in the classroom or online. That's the bottom line.
Many campus workshops focus on isolated areas like how to assess students or how to use your LMS. Other books and courses overly focus on the WHAT and not enough on the HOW. Literally they recommend things like, “Be responsive to your students”, “Incorporate activities during instruction” and “Provide clear directions and expectations” (these are their exact words). While all true, none of them are actionable. And many of these courses charge you hundreds.
Instead, TCM shows you how to figure out the specific obstacles, goals, and mindsets of your students, which can directly affect their engagement. The three step-by-step lesson formats that cover pretty much every type of class you teach. The specific activities that engages students most. How to check if students understand your instruction. And more.
Basically, we “show,” not “tell.”
Second, the Teaching College Masterclass (TCM) is a system of instruction, not general tips, tricks, and hacks. It focuses on students and their experiences, not on content. MOST instructors—novices and veterans alike—can’t get past that.
Third, we give you the 80/20—the FEW important things (the 20%) that yield the BIGGEST impact (the 80%). There are only 3 modules and a total of 13 lessons. Each training video averages 8 minutes, which means you could binge-watch and finish the TCM course in one afternoon. Other experts’ programs take 8 weeks or more to finish. They also cover every detail. Who’s got the time? We focus on three areas: 1) Learning your students' obstacles and goals; 2) your instruction; and 3) your assessments. The Teaching College Masterclass is the shortcut.
Fourth, you get focused and practical implementation guides and templates, something most other courses don’t give. Video & audio downloads. Transcripts. But you won’t get pages and pages of materials. ‘Cuz then you’d never use ’em. Dr. Eng once took a pedagogy course with a 250-page workbook, and never once looked at it. His PDFs are concise and bite-sized.
Finally, how many other courses provide ongoing instructional support after you purchase? You get a Mastermind community online of like-minded instructors to ask questions, network, etc. For good. Think about it: Where else can you get collective advice so quickly? Dr. Eng has taken many online courses, and the communities that give him the freedom to ask questions anytime anywhere is INVALUABLE.
If you’re a new teacher—whether a grad assistant, an adjunct working on your PhD, a career-changer, or an assistant professor—you’ve come to the right place. Simple as that.
If you’re a veteran professor looking to upgrade, and students aren’t maximizing their potential, you’ve come to the right place. TCM will give you the tools to ensure they grow. My lessons allow you to jump around, so feel free to go straight to parts you need. This is your one-stop shop.
If you’re a college administrator looking to augment your faculty’s instructional capacity, then TCM can work for you. We can allow multiple log-ins for your staff so they can learn how to teach effectively from the comfort of their…wherever. Click HERE for details.
If you’re a K-12 educator (teacher or administrator), you can learn a lot from this course too. I have a lot of K-12 teachers who realize that everything I teach applies to any industry. And since I came from the K-12 world, you’ll feel right at home.
If you educate/train others for a living—whether in sales, real estate, or what have you, you can also learn the principles that guide expert instructors.
We offer two options:
- #1: ONE-TIME PAYMENT OF $297
- #2: 4 MONTHLY PAYMENTS OF $89
Which ever option you choose, you will have FULL access to the course immediately. Don’t forget we offer a 30-day, 100% money-back guarantee when you show your work. You can get started today for $89. Or you can pay one time for $297 and save $59.
So, here’s the deal on refunds. We pride ourselves on high quality programs that actually work…if you put the work in. Meaning, if you follow the training, good things happen. If you don’t do it, nothing good happens. Shocking, right?
However, if you are unhappy, email us within 30 days and show us your work—this means completing the Lesson 1 worksheet—and you will receive a full refund. We stand behind the Teaching College Masterclass program 100%.
Depends. If you are in the program and have questions about teaching, post it on the members only Facebook community group.

My personal note to you
When I created the Teaching College Masterclass, I wanted a course or professional development program that I wished I had gotten as a novice professor; one that literally gives the step-by-step blueprint for student engagement, learning, and success.
So I unearthed all the best practices from both K-12 teaching (which focuses much more on active engagement than higher ed) as well as marketing (a field entirely devoted to communicating effectively and building relationships). I've tested and refined these ideas over the years and have seen tremendous results in educators across the world.
I hope TCM will similarly transform your instruction to help you become the professor students never forget.
