Hey Cassius, Obviously by taking our precious time to attend anything, we're seeking guidance to a place that we want to be that we may need help getting to. Personally I look for something immediately actionable. Most people just keep loading up on more information and all it leads to is continuous overwhelm.
I like it when instructors have their classes setup in Novice Intermediate And professional levels That way there's no assuming. This is the instructor knowing a little about his students and being able to have a greater impact . Just my thoughts And please don't be a monotone instructor. :)
I look for a sense of humor....Sounds a bit crazy, but learning should also be fun. You can be as knowledgeable as you want, but if you present the material in a boring and monotone way, it's a total turnoff for me. :)
all good points. I'm revamping the entire Curriculum for our educational photowalks series for later in the summer, so i want to include the type of teaching and the sort of experience that G+ photographers want, since we'll be filling our classes almost entirely from here :)
Well then...put in that context, I agree with the different degree's of knowledge such as novice or intermediate. I have experienced a few classes here, where because I did not know as much as the next one..I was looked down on and made to feel very inferior even by the instructor.
So passion, creativity, separate sessions taught based on skill level, information and material that can be taught and then instantly practiced on sight. And presented entertainingly with no monotone :-)
