ART Teaching Course – Module 1 – Abingdon, Oxfordshire
September 23 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm
The next ART Module 1 course is available for online booking.
Suitable for those who already teach bell handling and want to update their skills AND for those who have never taught anyone to handle a bell. Module 1 provides you with the skills and techniques necessary to take a ringer from their first lesson to having competent bell control.
You will learn through a mixture of practical and classroom sessions:
• How to teach a skill
• How to break down bell handling into easy stages that the new ringer can master
• About different learning types and how to adapt your teaching for them
• The benefits of intensive teaching
The practical sessions will give you plenty of time to practise your new skills in a safe environment. Working in pairs you will also have opportunity to hone your observation skills and get feedback on your feedback.
After your Module 1 course
It’s really important to start teaching as soon as possible after the day course; it’s amazing how quickly things can be forgotten and confidence lost if the techniques learnt aren’t put into practice very soon afterwards.
We ask that you have sufficiently good bell control to be able to inspire confidence in others and an ability to comfortably raise and lower a bell.
