Course Description (Alpine Clinic "Shut Up and Teach"):

Stop talking! Focus on movements and how to make them.

WHO: Any instructor who wants to take his or her teaching to new heights--higher

certification level, more successful lesson outcomes, you name it!

WHAT #1: You'll be introduced to the process and goals indoors- observing and conducting a "silent teach". Each participant will teach a short lesson segment as the day progresses. Ensuing on-hill discussions will be limited to feedback on how well the instructor seeded and cemented movements designed to lead to specific skiing performance outcomes.

WHAT #2: You'll learn how focusing on "felt" outcomes (what the student feels physically in a

specific part of the body when performing a task) enhances the "observable skiing outcome."

More "feeling" means more skiing!

"Shut Up and Teach" is not a teaching course in the traditional sense. You're not going to learn

teaching "progressions" per se, or be critiqued on MA. But you will discover that you've

probably been using words in ways that have been interfering with, rather than enhancing ,

your students' understanding--and their capacity to learn.

WHY: The great hurdle for most instructors seeking higher certification is finding that sweet

spot where the five fundamentals, progressions, movement analysis, biomechanics, learning

and teaching styles overlap, so we can tap into our self-awareness and see clearly how to teach

in a way that fuels our own skiing improvement.

LIMITATIONS: The course can be taken as a 1-day (6 CEUs) or 2-day (12 CEUs) event.

Additional Event Details:

This course can be taken as a one-day or two-day clinic.
