AnnexesFoundations for Excellence71ANNEXESI Summary of delegates' evaluationsForty seven completed evaluation forms were returned, representing 47% of the total number of delegates, session chairs and speakers attending the conference. High ratings for the sessions were given in terms of both interest and relevance - 100% in several cases, with the least well received session still being rated as interesting by 89% of respondents. There were many positive comments about the excellent organisation of the day, in particular about timekeeping, the inclusion of young people's performances and the effective use of different session chairs. The venue, catering and helpfulness of staff were all highly appreciated.The four most mentioned 'key learning points' were: >> the importance of re-evaluating teaching methods regularly and considering Paul Denegri's 4 Es: Energy, Enthusiasm with Expertise, and Experience>> awareness raising, identification of and support for hypermobility and Joint Hypermobility Syndrome >> the motivational climate and goal setting, including working on task-involving rather than ego-involving goals >> strategies for relaxation and dealing with anxieties Other particular areas of learning noted were methods for training young voices safely; developing more personalised learning for students; and remembering that teaching is a valuable career, not merely a 'fallback' if someone does not become a professional performer. Overall, the conference prompted significant reflection by delegates on their role as teachers, perhaps best summed up by this learning point:The conference was highly successful and recommendations for future events included: >> more discussion based breakout groups and/or longer question times to discuss issues raised in the main presentations and more time for networking>> more separate dance and music sessions (while still appreciating 'cross over' sessions) >> more performances in dance (or showing dance film) to provide a better balance'Treasuring teaching as a trainable talent.'54DateCourse TitleTutorPageDateCourse TitleTutorPage02 Jul-07 JulInvertebrate Surveying TechniquesJeff Clarke 22and Paul Hill06 Jul-13 JulGrass IdentificationJudith Allinson3020 Jul-23 JulNVC GrasslandsBen Averis4023 Jul-26 JulIntroduction to NVCBen Averis4006 Aug-11 AugIdentifying Sedges and RushesFred Rumsey3110 Aug-13 AugNVC: HeathlandsBen Averis4018 Aug-25 AugHighland Butterflies and Moths David Brown2018 Aug-25 AugIdentifying Spiders Mike Davidson2224 Aug-27 AugScottish Mammals John Haddow1824 Aug-27 AugA Weekend with the WeatherAlison McLure1207 Sep-14 SepIdentifying FungiLiz Holden3428 Sep-01 OctHarvestmen Spider Identification Mike Davidson23and Ecology05 Oct-07 OctBird Survey TechniquesBTO Trainers1505 Oct-09 OctSmall MammalsJeff Clarke1905 Oct-12 OctAutumn Birds and MigrationRussell Nisbet1609 Nov-11 NovAstronomy WeekendGlasgow 12 AstronomyAssociationMALHAM TARN25 FebIntroducing Lichens 1Allan Pentecost3613 Mar-15 MarBird Survey TechniquesBTO Trainers1531 MarIntroducing Lichens 2Allan Pentecost3618 May-21 MayBirdwatching in the DalesColin Straker 15and David Sharrod25 May-28 MayWild Flowers of the Judith Allinson26Limestone Dales01 Jun-04 JunSedges Judith Allinson3022 Jun-25 JunLimestone Flora Ian Powell2720 Jul-23 JulGrass IdentificationSarah 31Watson-Jones23 Jul-27 JulButterflies and Moths David Brown2003 Aug-06 AugIntroduction to Freshwater AnimalsSharon and 22Peter Flint03 Aug-10 AugGrasses, Sedges and Rushes Judith Allinson3106 Aug-10 AugFens and Bogs: Ros Tratt39Plants and Processes17 Aug-20 AugExploring the Yorkshire Dales Centre Staff1020 Aug-24 AugMosses and Liverworts of WetlandMartha Newton33and River Habitats 20 Aug-27 AugIngleborough -
