Teaching Skills For Technical Experts

Presented by: Tori Brenneison
Time: Friday, Jan. 12, 2:45 PM - 3:45 PM

Bad news: tech folks are not always the most compelling teachers. (It's not our fault; we're used to talking to computers, not people!)

Good news: teaching people is a learnable skill.

Best news: this talk is a 45-minute primer on educational philosophy, curriculum development, and content delivery for technical experts.

We'll cover learning styles, effective communication, and audience management–AKA, how to “read the room”... even if the room is a video conference! That’s right; post-2020, this talk has been updated to include information on hybrid and remote learning. Participants will leave ready to share their expertise with the world via more effective meetings, conference talks, workshops, and mentoring sessions… face-to-face, or camera-to-camera.
