Teaching Novice Learners

What did I learn today? That sometimes students want steps repeated again and again and again
How was it useful? It goes against the constructivist approach I have been using and shows that behaviourism has a place in higher education
What feelings/thoughts/emotions came up during the session? Frustration which turned to guilt when I realised that I was trying to impose what I think is a good way of learning on to learners who require more support
What did you learn? Start slooooow
What will you do with the information i.e. what next? Revise my schedule for next year,it’s too late to do it for this year. Create some support videos and run some extra/support classes
