I started out teaching a workshop on developing custom themes for Wordpress, and went on to build a new workshop for them on responsive design. I really liked teaching at Noble, and still recommend it, but its classes are structured1 in a way that helped me get into teaching but didn’t feel quite right for me personally.
Classes take place in computer labs, and are very scripted. As an instructor, you go through a workbook with the students, demonstrating how to work through a section step by step before having the students work through the same section from their books. I can attest firsthand to how this structure helps keep up quality, and works well for the short format of the classes. In the end though, I wanted more freedom to plan and experiment, and a longer stretch of time with students to see how they learned and adjust accordingly. ↩︎
