As a lead-in to small group discussions of teaching, this paper describes some of the teaching techniques that can be used to engage students in the absence of technology. Teaching, whether it includes educational technology or not, is still only as effective as its ability to engage students' intellects. Among the aspects of teaching that help engage students are the energy level of the instructor, voice volume, movement, relating the material to students' experiences, and other techniques designed to attract and hold attention. Examples of such techniques are given for experimental, educational, and introductory psychology classes. (SLD)
