Talkative teachers turn learning into a painful chore. In this episode, I discuss the problem of instructors talking far too much and offer a few insights on how to create a more effective and engaging learning experience through trimming. The key is to see instruction more like facilitation delivered through personal conversations and practical experiences, not long lectures. I share a “SEED” method I’ve developed in our BELT courses to balance instructor and participant involvement. Join us as we explore the philosophy of “less is more” in teaching.
