Gabriel Byrne was on (via Zoom to Maine) to talk about his autobiography, which took hm from Ireland to Hollywood. At one point he said "When you listen to someone fully it's like a prayer.".

Can a teacher do that? Like Robin Williams in 'Dead Poet's Society' - where the students hang on your every word? It requires a bit of the religious. It takes story telling.

Learning Design looks like this

Visible to anyone in the world
Edited by Jonathan Vernon, Sunday, 4 May 2014, 09:26

Gagnés events of instruction:

1. Gaining attention. The scene opener, even the preview or title sequence.

2. Informing the learner of the objective . Laying out your stall

3. Stimulating recall of prerequisite learning . Tapping into what has already been understood - creating empathy.

4. Presenting the stimulus material . Presenting the case, offering evidence that might impress or inspire, that could be controversial and memorable.

5. Providing learning guidance. Offering a way through the maze, the thread through the labyrinth or the helping hand.

6. Eliciting the performance . Now it's their turn.

7. Providing feedback . Sandwiched, constructive feedback on which to build.

8. Assessing the performance . How are targets going?

9. Enhancing retention and transfer . Did it stick, could they pass it on and so become the teacher?

And having just pledged to stop doing this, perhaps I will. I have other existences online that may be calling out for attention.
