How do teachers learn to teach? Just because you do a thing well, doesn't strictly mean you can teach it. To teach anything, you must understand your students. What do they already know? What DON'T they know? What might get in their way and how do you present new ideas in a way that will make sense to the greatest number of people? And what must a student know at a minimum that will allow them to connect the landmarks (or fill in the spaces between them) that we can offer in the limited time a workshop provides?
