    Who here has an interest in teaching?

    Ilaekae and I have been running week-long classes in the Classroom for All. I am interested in handing off my portion in whole or in part to one or more people. Do you have an interest in teaching that you would like to explore?

    If you are curious but unsure of committing to ongoing classes, you could try just running a single week-long class, to get a feel for your teaching ability and/or your interest.

    Post here or send me a PM if you are interested.

    (If anyone is wondering, my interests are currently more in reading pregnancy books and getting my house upgraded for the spawn than in running classes. But running the classes has been a great experience, and Ilaekae is great company. )
    I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.

    It would be especially nice to have from four to ten "teachers." This way, the work would be spread out so that each could take a turn in rotation, allowing people who don't have a LOT of free time to participate. If problems with scheduling pop up, we just trade back and forth.

    I've run into problems myself because of the holiday season, work load and the LMS all occurring at the same time, which makes you feel like an idiot because you find yourself apologizing constantly to the poor students who are just trying to do their best. They've all been nice about it, but it's not the most productive thing for everybody.

    We all have different skills and interests. Exposing "students" to this variety is actually helpful, and when the assignments are by different people week to week on a rotating basis, there's less chance of boredom.

    I would love to help out, but yeah, uhm, I'm already on to something... Congratulations Seedling on getting one of those curious small humans in a couple of months

    As for people saying that they would love to help out but are afraid they don't know anything of value, just realise that teaching is just another way of learning. Set the students an exercise you think helped you getting better at what you do, and if they start asking you questions you don't know the answer on, try to find it together. You don't have to be the uber-master of arts to teach anyone anything.

    I've always wanted some good tips on actually teaching art to people at my school, cause people keep bugging me.

    some day you guys should or massive black should start a workshop on pedagogy or something, that'd be pretty cool
    Lol, It sucks that I'm asian. I can't help it if I look like a million other people.

    My Sketchbook: Critics and Comments would be AWESOME.
