Learning to Teach - PHP Benelux

As a developer, you spend your entire life learning. But what happens when the tables are turned and you become the teacher? Do you want to become a conference speaker or a mentor, talk at your local user group, give presentations at work, or become a technical trainer? As a previous classroom teacher with a Master’s Degree in Curriculum Development, I will take you on a journey to understand the various learning styles and how to effectively reach everyone. We will look at how to present your information, the best ways to structure it and learn ways to reach all students no matter their level. We will also cover a number of best practices for crafting your presentation decks themselves. Join me for this exploration into the inner workings of the human mind.
