This note captures our guidance for presenters and coaches involved in learning options at Peninsula Bridge Club:
- Our goal is to empower learners with safe, engaging and well-planned learning opportunities.
- We can provide a computer with large external monitor (with internet and Powerpoint etc), whiteboards and pens, microphone etc as well as a large number of well-spaced tables.
- We, as a club, use and promote Pianola, and some but not all of our aspiring members use Pianola Plus.
- We teach our beginners and improvers systems and conventions in line with the ABF/Joan Butts approach and any examples or hands you use would usefully assume these when this is not contrary to the points you are trying to make.
- We teach reverse attitude and suit preference signals and again any examples or hands you use would usefully assume these when this is not contrary to the points you are trying to make.
- We appreciate and expect note handouts after any presentation.
- We also appreciate an electronic version of notes and/or the presentation if you are willing for us to publish this (fully attributed) on our website.
- For presenters who do not know our players we welcome and expect a pre-workshop discussion of the intended content and its level to ensure it is appropriate to the expected students.
- For coaching we expect the coach to assess the students' relevant skill and performance level in some manner prior to the coaching session in order to inform that session and make it efficient - we are happy to talk with coaches about how this might be best achieved.
- We understand that many presenters will have other services or products that they may wish to promote, but require this to be low-key and brief so that it doesn't distract from the learning opportunity.
We welcome any questions you may have.
