Leaning by Teaching
I presented a workshop to my local chapter of the National Speakers Association last week. It went really well.
They always say the teacher learns more than the students.
Here’s what I learned:
Practical – There were errors on slides, like numbers not matching. I also realized some elements could be presented before others.
What worked – I asked if anyone had a paint-by-numbers kit as a kid. Most of them did. That surprised me. The concept is much more universal than I would have thought. This is going to play big in the final rewrite.
Extra benefits – Many people gave me wonderful testimonials. Several people volunteered to be beta readers. A few suggested topics what they wanted more of. One person wanted the seminar to be longer! That’s good news!
Unexpected bonuses: Several people posted my picture on Facebook with kind words about the seminar.
What do you learn when you do seminars?
