I’ve almost completed a course on Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector, or PTLLS. It’s partly to help me improve the work I do in training and running workshops, but also as the first step in the journey to becoming a qualified teacher.
I’m increasingly interested in the way that learning and education can be used in community development and social action and having some teaching qualifications will really help me to explore this area and actually get stuck in.
Part of the PTLLS assessment is a micro-teach. For us this was a 30 minutes teaching session on a topic of our choice. My topic was the experimental author, BS Johnson.
Just in case it is of interest to anyone, I’ve shared what I prepared for the session – which I am pleased to say I passed! Below there is an embed of the slides, or you can download a PDF copy.
