How to Teach

Taught by Douglas Tsoi

Teaching and learning are two of life's fundamental skills, as well as two of life's great joys. What sex is to genes, teaching and learning are to culture --it's the only way we humans can pass it on.

Some people think that they are good a teaching because they know a lot and can talk about it. Others think they can't teach because they're nervous about being in front of people or have trouble explaining things. But teaching isn't about content delivery. It's about sparking the desire and ability in others to learn the content without you. 

This class is for anyone who wants the skill set to effectively share their knowledge with others. It is for anyone to wants to advance professionally, be a better parent, or lead an intellectually fulfilled life. Those interested in eventually teaching at PUGSpdx are encouraged to attend.

"I was so glad I took this workshop! I went in wanting to learn more about how I could effectively support my clients and walked out with tangible next steps as to how I would do that. Douglas' approach was accessible, fun, and highly interactive. I really enjoyed learning in multiple ways throughout the day and appreciated having the time to actually practice what we were discussing. This workshop was a lot more impactful than others I've taken in the past, and I'd recommend it to anyone interested in taking their work (no matter what it is) to a higher level." -Megan Leatherman, HR Consultant and Career Coach
