Teaching evolution

I sometimes have to repeat sessions that I wrote in my early days of teaching. One of these sessions is relating to soft tissue and boney injuries and treatment. It interesting to repeat these sessions, especially with the original material. I have moved along a lot since then and my overuse of PowerPoint in the early days becomes apparent when I open a presentation with around 80 slides in it, my safety blanket I think. Now it isn’t unusual for me to walk into a session with nothing more that a teaching plan and a board marker. If I forget something? So what? ‘Well, you tell me’ is always a good way to address that issue. But this is rare and it is about building that self-efficacy through practice. Lecturing is in itself a skill. Of course, it does help sticking to the same range of subjects, but it is nice to be challenged occasionally and do something different.
