- Keep things simple: don’t try to achieve too much too soon, or expect your learners to. They don’t know what you know and they need time to assimilate new skills and knowledge and to understand the how and why of this new learning. You will find you may need to keep repeating and recapping things, which might be frustrating at first, but will help learning take place.
- Be organised: always have a contingency plan in case anything goes wrong, for example if a piece of equipment stops working. Get to know the people who can help you when necessary, e.g. support staff.
