Learning Objectives

  • To learn about people’s motivations about teaching at Code Your Future

  • To find out what people want to get from the day

  • To help people get to know each other

Why do you want to Teach?

In small groups discuss why you personally want to teach. Write down your answers on post-it notes and group similar themes.

The aim of this exercise is to let the attendees get to know each other and hopefully enable them to value the rest of the lesson.

When completed we should ask the groups to put forward their themes. Write them on the board and discuss.
