On the PGCAP700 module today I took part in an activity, which was to write a list of the things we think about when planning a taught session. We wrote the lists in small groups and then placed them onto category sheets around the room. The categories were:
- You (the teacher)
The results can be seen here, and they were very interesting.
Naturally we were thinking about timing issues, the audience and technology/equipment, but we were thinking much more about the preparation and planning of our sessions (which is no bad thing). However, there wasn’t one thought about ourselves and some of the issues teachers face when delivering a taught session. We added the thoughts for teachers later (see photo), and we also added cry as a joke.
