Questions related to introducing a subject, paradigm, concept etc., in a specific lesson. Use this tag only for asking about a specific lesson for introducing a specific subject.

Introductory teaching differs from regular teaching in pace, number of examples, and other teaching parameters.

Students in an introductory lesson can have knowledge or experience in Computer Science, but not in the specific material of the subject in question. The teaching method in such lessons should accommodate to this situation by being slower.

A slower pace means repeating a part of the subject a number of times, and guaranteeing that students understand the new material. The more examples used, the better students understand the subject.
