A non-teacher’s guide to planning and delivering a road safety lesson

This workshop will build on a presentation delivered as part of the Fringe programme on Wednesday 9 November.

Road safety sessions are often being delivered by people who do not have a background in education, but who want to make a difference to vulnerable road users. With time in front of an audience often very limited, it is important to make sessions as effective as possible.

The workshop will cover: lesson planning; learning styles; delivery styles; audience engagement; classroom management; and evaluation potential.
