Another Successful Association of Ringing Teachers (ART) course for Sussex

Saturday the 27th of January saw 12 ringers from across Sussex gather at Southover, Lewes for the ‘M2F’ course run by the Association of Ringing Teachers (ART). The one-day course at Southover was fully booked, with Gill Hughes (from Derbyshire) putting them through their paces on the road to becoming better teachers / coaches.

Ian: “I had no pre-conceived learning objects for attending the Module 2F course, but, based on my experience of the Module M1 course I had an expectation for a very useful informative day, which would provide valuable tools to improve my teaching technique and effectiveness, presented in a collaborative environment and friendly atmosphere. I was not in any way disappointed.”
