Key Points

We give some advice about delivering content, but teachers are empowered to work with their class in their own way.

  • No lectures - Nobody talks for more than 10 minutes

  • Don't teach alone - Share the session teaching amongst volunteers

  • Cold call - Choose people by name to answer questions (and mix it up!)

  • Live code - Share your screen and try things out

  • Everybody writes - Have the trainees code along with you - or have them tell you what to do next

  • Normalise googling - Say 'I don't know; let's find out' often - even if you do know

  • Exercises over lectures - Give people plenty of practice coding in public

  • Make mistakes - And fix them in public
