Tasmanian Polytechnic Students Come To Louisa’s Walk

A few weeks ago I wrote a blog post about the two days’ teaching I did for the Tasmanian Polytechnic Eco and Adventure guiding students.  We had a ball and I think I learned as much from them as they did from me!

There is a lot to teach about guiding but most of it cannot be taught; how to connect emotionally with your audience, how to have a vibrant, engaging personality, how to care passionately about your topic and the list could go on………

The two days I spent with the students covered most of the topics from voice production to story telling but the rest is really up to them.  Their passion, creativity and inventiveness is something I cannot teach.  However, we can inspire by what we present on Louisa’s Walk and today, this is what they saw.  From the theory in the classroom to the reality on site.

For once the weather was kind – traditionally it turns really feral for the Polytechnic’s visit!  But, after a weekend, when the conditions turned very nasty indeed, the sun shone and the thermometer reached balmy temperatures of around 15 degrees.  This may not be showcasing the reality of being a tour guide to the students but you have to take the rough with the smooth and today was smooth!

They were a great group and made an empathetic audience as we told Louisa’s story.

Here’s a photograph taken afterwards.
