If you’ve ever spent time in a classroom, it’s likely that you’ve watched a teacher make a decision about what to do.
Aware of this, many students are now taking advantage of the ever-increasing availability of online learning tools such as Udemy and Coursera.
And while they may not be as accessible as the classroom, they can be immensely useful.
Here are 10 lessons you can learn from the world’s leading educators: Actors’ school: ‘I don’t care what the teacher says’One of the biggest lessons of studying theatre is how to get the most out of it.
Many students take this as a given, but one of the things that they need to remember is that if they want to excel, they need a teacher who is constantly on the go and has the confidence to help them navigate that.
That’s where the actor’s school comes in.
“I think the most important thing for me was to make sure that my mum had a plan for everything.
She was always there for me,” says Tania, from Cardiff.
After studying acting for three years, she moved to London to study drama at a prestigious school.
Tania says: “It was a huge challenge for me to move away from my parents home and work on a small budget.”
It was also challenging because I didn’t know how much time I would have for myself.
But it was definitely the best thing that I did.
“Actors school: Learning from a teacher with a passionFor those with a particular passion, it can be tough to find someone who shares their passion for teaching.
It can be especially difficult for those who have never worked in a theatre setting.”
There’s no one in the world I can trust who knows how to teach theatre, and there are a lot of different types of teachers,” says teacher, Sarah Wilsher.
Sarah says:”I do have to do my own research and work with students to find the best teacher.
If they have a passion for something, then they are going to do it.
“It’s about finding the teacher who understands you and will be there for you throughout the entire process.”
“The teacher that I found in Cardiff is very responsive and has a good understanding of theatre.
They will give you a little bit of extra motivation.”
