Oh Jim - can see yer back of holiday!
they are not trade secrets -
I am merely trying to help the lad and without hijacking a thread I am actually trying to expand it.
look at the post below your jibe - Brilliant and innovative use of 'reaction drills' in a situation of having to train alone.
once you understand how Humans learn you can understand how to teach them - or yourself.
Join in Jim - Don't trash.
what suggestions would you have Jim? for someone training alone and trying to improve reaction and partner work asking for advise on a forum?
I would suggest that as they are likely to be far away - get them thinking - cos i aint gonna be around to show them
My trade secrets - as you call them are merely cos i have been teaching this stuff a long time and i will gladly share them with anyone.
But if you know about teaching adults you will know that they will accept and absorb info better if they feel they have contributed to working out the way forward.
just preach at them and they will shut down. So i don't just throw things at them in a 'this is it - do it' way!
I bet Sam has already been thinking - strange list steve gave me - how would i use those things - and there are clues in the previous posts i have made. So therefore - he is - whilst still alone - developing how he approaches the dilemma.
No TRADE secrets Jim - quite common knowledge if you have been around ADULT Education for a while. Wink WINK.
but i also like to learn - so thank you Nathanso - you just added to my knowledge
