Its not about how much you know. Its about how much the students learn. My sessions at Great Lakes are 3 hours straight and it can be a challenge to retain the attention of the students. A very effective method is breakdown a big subject into really small topics and let each student take ownership of a topic. Everyone focuses hard on their topic and researches deep into that alone. 20 minutes later, the class takes turns to teach others what they learned. I step in to add extra weight to certain key points by narrating real life experiences with clients or to counter argue. Its a group activity and the learning comes out much better than if a single teacher teaches those very same points for 3 hours straight. Here are pics from my session yesterday at Great Lakes.
