Teaching is a cognitive skill just like any other, so how can we increase the space in our working memory, our factual subject knowledge, and our procedural knowledge? Well, listeners to this podcast have heard me say many times, it is virtually impossible to become proficient at a mental task without extended practice. Therefore, our best bet for improving our teaching is to practice teaching! In this episode, Chef Roche discusses a few strategies that he recommends, including peer observations using video, as well a keeping a teaching diary and / or starting a discussion group with fellow teachers.
