In this talk, Arthur Reeve will draw upon his experience as a secondary school teacher and recent educational research. He will consider what we in the ringing community might reflect upon in order to becoming the most effective teachers possible. The talk will cover: • What actually is teaching? (and why can’t people just do what we tell them to!) • How our mind learns • The difference between hearing and listening, telling and understanding • What are the key features of effective feedback? • How can we tell if someone has learnt something? This is NOT a talk on how to teach bell-handling or bellringing per se.
