What did I learn? That my slides showing people how to use software were not as good as I thought.
How was it useful? I am about to use screencasts to “mirror” what I do in the tutorials but I have discovered that the slides I use for the tutorial don’t cover everything I had recorded as screencasts.
Why is this useful? – Because it highlights a gap in my material and shows how suing technology has forced me to reflect on the static version of the notes.
What will I do next ?– so much to do, I could start by rehearsing screencasts for other tutorials to see if they match up with what I thought I was teaching.
