As a developer, you spend your entire life learning. But what happens when the tables are turned and you become the teacher? Do you want to become a conference speaker or a mentor, talk at your local user group, give presentations at work, or become a technical trainer? As a previous classroom teacher with a Master's Degree in Curriculum Development, I will take you on a journey to understand the various learning styles and how to effectively reach everyone. We will look at how to present your information, best ways to structure it, and learn ways to reach all students no matter their level. We will also cover a number of best practices for crafting your presentation decks themselves. Join me for this exploration into the inner workings of the human mind.

I enjoyed Heather's talk. She had great content and a great familiarity with her subject matter. I liked how she went beyond an overview of learning styles and gave useful advice on how to teach adults, and the benefits of being a mentor.

Quite an interesting talk, but it did feel like the bulk of the talk was covering the learning styles. Would have been nice to include a shout out to phpmentoring.org

This was the third time I've seen this talk, and I was able to pull a lot more out of the talk this time through. That's because I've had time to apply some of her suggestions myself. It's a difficult topic.
