Methodology

Until recently I was working at Imperial War Museum Duxford, and also at the Shuttleworth Collection as the Education and STEM manager. Put simply my job was to make education as fun, engaging and interactive as it could be. It helped a lot that I love planes!

I have taught to nearly every type of person there is! Primary and secondary school ages, university students, teachers, business professionals, even to prisoners.

I really, passionately believe that education has to be fun. It has to be made interesting and relevant to what is going on in the world today.

Professor Stephen Hawkins quotes: "We spend a great deal of time studying history, which, let's face it, is mostly the history of stupidity." I love this quote, not just the stupidity part, but because so many important historical moments have been decided on the whims of fortune, good luck, bad luck, good and bad decisions by individuals.

I like to teach by bringing a subject to life, by explaining how and why things worked, and the impact it made. I do this by making lessons interactive, fun, experimental and memorable.

My main motto, is to have fun with the subject, to engage with my audience and make sure that they understand it in a way that is memorable and interesting.

Background

I have been teaching for around 15 years. I have devised, developed and delivered lessons on Financial skills, Entrepreneurship, Careers, CV making, Mental Heath, meta-psychology, and history.
I have taught to 1,000's and 1,000's of people of all ages, in lots of different places. Schools, colleges, festivals, businesses and even in prisons.

I like to think how I teach makes any subject matter fun. Forgive the quote below, but it is an example of the type of feedback I love to get...

"None of us will ever know the true effect of Chris' presentation and the impression the model has made on these children. As a teacher of 25 years, having asked students years later what their lasting memory of school was, I know the majority will answer a presentation such as this or a study trip to a special place.
The combination of the student-assembled B-29 model and the charismatic, passionate teaching of Mr. Jefferson made this presentation to be the best I have seen in my career.

Respectfully,
Kristi Johnson
