Themes in teaching

Last term we concentrated on soldering. Students do worry about soldering so taking it away from precious finished pieces and back into technical exercises helped all to be less worried about the soldering process. Also a bit of peer learning thrown in helped loads and now I feel students have much more confidence soldering. Exercises complete, the new confidence was taken forward into their own work.

This term we have concentrated on piercing, again with exercises and then a project that will focus on piercing out. So we tackled tab setting. Here are a couple of first examples.
