Assignment: Thinking Outside the Box
All too often we teach topics in an obvious way. This is particularly an issue if you have been teaching for a long time and have got into a rut. During this exercise you will select a topic and come up with a radically different and innovative way to teach it.
You can be as way out and as inventive as you want to be. It does not matter that the practicalities of teaching this topic in the way you design is impossible to implement. The purpose of the exercise is to think outside the box. Sometimes you will then be inspired to have a different approach to the way you teach and this encourages you to experiment with new ideas.
Choose one of the following topics:
- Caesarean section
- Interventions in general
- Stages of labour
Spend some time thinking about a different and experimental way of covering this topic in classes. You might like to write a poem or song, have an activity that involves drawing or other artwork, a role play that you design yourself, or a physical activity that involves all the group.
Once you have designed the activity, determine the practicality of it in applying it to a childbirth class.
