Workshop – “Teaching Tips for Foremen” – Emma Wooders (LIVE on Zoom)

Workshop – “Teaching Tips for Foremen” – Emma Wooders (LIVE on Zoom)

Have you ever wondered what might be the best way to bring on a beginner when they join your team?  Would you find it useful to have a model of how teachers teach and learners learn?  Have you been missing an opportunity to learn from other foremen about what they do?

In this session, Emma Wooders will share some teaching tips which might be useful for foremen (old, new and aspiring) garnered from her other life as a teacher as well as her foreman’s experience.  There will be practical suggestions as well as some of the big ideas behind them to help develop your practice at practice.

Your host

Emma Wooders is currently foreman of Windsor Morris as well as dancing with The Outside Capering Crew and playing for The Rumworth Morris. She has been morris dancing since 1994 when she joined Oyster Morris, danced for eight years with Gog Magog Molly, and is a three-time winner (and two-time judge) of the John Gasson Jig Competition. Emma has called for ceilidhs and workshops at Sidmouth Folk Festival, as well as running workshops as part of her morris foreman’s role. In her spare time, Emma teaches Science (and a strange mix of other subjects depending on what the timetable demands – currently it’s music) at a Windsor middle school, where she runs a small but very busy department.
