OverviewWould you like to have a sense of calm when you give instructions, run interesting discussions and keep your learners busy and activated?
In our second session, we will focus on the skill of giving clear instructions: seems easy… but can be the thing that brings new educators undone. Together we will try some strategies to give you confidence in this important area.
We will explore the art of planning and running an interesting group discussion that avoids the dreaded silence!
We will also look at proven strategies to make PowerPoint your friend as a learning resource, not something that will bore your learners senseless!
Together we will investigate ways to read the room and gauge learner interest and activity. This way you can ensure that your learners stay in the learning zone and not get sidetracked.
As part of each of our sessions together we will plan forward, looking at possible challenges and ways that we might overcome them using good practice. Bring your challenges along to the session and we will think of possibilities together.
We will complete our session with an innovative opportunity for Reflective Practice that you can use with your learners and in conclusion answer any burning questions you may have!
