Interactive training, and advancing techniques further

One of the unusual things about the way that I train is that I write examples in front of my classes - I don't just go through cases that have been prepared ahead of time. Not only does that mean that I can show people what they want to see rather that what I have guessed they want to see, but it also illustrates to them how I reach the answer in the first place. And that is important and they, too, will need to know how to reach an answer when their course is completed. Why is my method so unusual? I believe it is because many tutors aren't knowledgeable enough about the subject they are teaching to be able to present it clearly and without hitches on the fly as I do.

You'll notice that I said present it clearly. And that has involved the writing of some code and explaining it, followed by running the code. Delegates want to see both at the same time, so I have got into the habit of leaving a lot of white space above my programs and that way they don't scroll right off the screen as they are being run. But there's always scope for improvement and my thanks go to Blaž on today's Python course for coming up with the suggestion that I might work with two windows side by side.

Training Windows side by side

... thanks ... and blindingly obvious when pointed out to me (but not beforehand). I'll have a careful look when I'm back at base nest week to see if that will work well on the rather smaller projector / screen that we use - but I think it will, or at least can easily be adapted to do so. Lightbulb moment, perhaps - and a step forward again - an ever improving training product.
