    “You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives.” ~ Clay P. Bedford

    They say teaching is a noble profession.  You can either be a mentor, coach or just simply a trainor. 

    One can only be an effective with this profession if it is successfully transfer the knowledge to other people and then later on, they can apply it to real life scenario. 

    How? We then create curiosity by:

    • Do your homework by studying lessons beforehand
    • Start by getting to know the participants by learning their background and take note of their expectations
    • Discuss the concepts/ideas  
    • Relate the ideas with the actual situations by specifying an example
    • Connect the relevance with an activity
    • Interact with the participants by sharing their activity output
    • Explain the output for each activity
    • Apply its connections to the real-life scenario 

    Is this possible?  Not all of these key points cannot be attainable but if we can implement at least most of them, there is a better chance of  positive and lasting impact in their workplace as we transfer the knowledge to them. 

    I would like to end this quote with another saying:

    “What we have to learn to do, we learn by doing.”  ~ Aristotle
