Just a quick point about the things I do and do not do in my courses:
- I do not lecture - I assume most participants will have slept enough before they arrive!
- I do not show gory photos or anything else that may make students feel ill.
- I do not use Power Point presentations as a teaching tool.
- I do make the course interactive - students participate as much as possible for greater skills retention.
- I do get students moving around, working in pairs and groups.
- I run exams myself - no one has to go into a room on their own either with me or a scary examiner.
- I pace sessions well and make the day fun!
