“Trends in learning” was the title of the lecture that the Managing Partner of R+D+i of Overlap, Antonio Rubio, has offered the first Symposium for technicals in the Spanish School of Horse Riding Somosaguas last week.
The aim of the talk was to contribute to personal and professional success riding for teachers, for what Antonio Rubio has structured the talk in seven trends (which can be extrapolated to other areas of learning):
1 – From monitor to coach: rider analysis must be global, since their skills or knowledge to attitude, motivation skills and experience. It should be noted that each student and his horse are different, so it is necessary to perform consulting work leading to the establishment of objectives for which each will work.
2 – From one metodology to several metodologies: is convenient to use alternative methodologies such as viewing the training videos, make workshops or workshops without the horse to study the technical elements; make mentoring for the student or have a third party expert, to consult or seek advice; create a virtual community of pupils, so that they can share their concerns and experiences and submitted as one another in terms of value, use of ICT (information technologies), taking courses online , take advantage of new media like mobile applications.
3 – From shortsightedness to sporting career: it is very positive conduct a “road map” or realistic career map divided into stages, to periodically evaluate the training and have very encuenta to the quarry.
4 – From individuals to team: the team concept is very important, for this we must create joint activities to promote synergy between entrenandos. It is also very useful “peer coaching”, in which one of the most experienced pupils serve as a “coach” and help others.
5 – From improvisation to the quality and security: is important to improve the quality of training, prior review by the horse and equipment, promote safety (helmet) and prevent abandonment of the practice (knowing what causes and face it).
6 – From repetition to innovation: the teacher must seek innovation in their classes. How? Attending national and international fairs, organizing a clinic each year, attending training courses or symposia …
7 – From single thought to emotional intelligence: “Emotional intelligence is the ability to control our emotions and those of others, to constructively manage the relationships between people” (Daniel Goleman). Its pillars are: self-awareness (knowing the strengths and weaknesses), and to have self-motivation and managing relationships. So, look for training to improve self-esteem, provide positive feedback and continued to seek training and inspirational leadership that builds leadership in explaining decisions.
