Well done to all participants at Deaf Links Dundee who participated in the introduction to Training the Trainers course over 4 (very busy) days!
We covered (at least):
- Learning cycle
- Learning styles
- Identifying learning needs (LNA)
- Aims, objectives & learning outcomes
- Planning, preparation and delivery
- Using resources
- Group dynamics
- Teaching methods
- Giving feedback
And that was just the ‘How to teach’ – we also looked at ‘What to teach’ by breaking down course specifications, learning outcomes & assessment criteria with everyone delivering training sessions on a number of topics.
Thanks to Alana Harper at Deaf Links for securing funding and identifying willing participants. Also to the continued support of Elizabeth Adams and David Johnston who generously shared their experience as long standing BSL tutors. And to Denise Ryan for the ‘intro to linguistic’ session which was invaluable.
