The art of navigation

Really productive last two days for me, attending a two-day workshop for Providers of the National Navigation Award Scheme. The idea was to learn and share ideas for teaching navigation, moving away from the "traditional" ways of teaching hill navigation, and thinking afresh. Lots of great ideas to maximise time and help clients "visualise" what they should be doing, as well as learning by doing and not in the classroom. Plenty of things for me to think about and incorporate into our
existing courses to make them even better. Thanks to Nigel Williams for delivering the course, and to James Woodhouse from Lathallan School for hosting and organising the conference. Great stuff.

How best to introduce the compass....?
