Recap: How to Teach an HourSchool Class
Last week we had our first “How to Teach an HourSchool class”. It was tons of fun with lots of engaging participants, inquiring away their questions and hesitations about teaching their first class.
Here are some sample questions the group asked:
- What should I teach How do I decide what to teach?
- How do I know if I’m ready to teach?
- Are shorter or longer classes better (intro vs. longer workshop) ?
- How do I plan where to teach?
- Days of week - most popular? least popular?
- Pricing - what range seems to be most popular?
- How much $ should I charge? How do I value my skill/class?
- How do you know what a good class size is?
- How long should my class be?
- How do I structure my time teaching?
- How do I describe my class so it will interest people?
- Promotion of the class beyond your site?
- How do I know I’m not forgetting something?
- How do I build activities for my class?
- Do people want to hear my talk or should it be all hands-on?
- Execution - what works, what doesn’t?
- How do I end my class?
We are having another one of these on Tue May 15 at 7pm. If you have been thinking of teaching a class for awhile but just didn’t know where to start, we would love to chat about it.
If you don’t live in Austin but are interested in joining, send us a note at email@example.com - we’re thinking of trying this out on Google + as well.
Cheers, HourSchool HQ
