Great Teaching and Learning? It’s a habit!

Our habits are like an automatic pilot that helps us do everything without too much thinking. We know what we are doing and how to do it. Then a pandemic hits and changes everything.

Habits help make it easy to get things done quickly, efficiently – and unconsciously. This means we don’t have to think too hard about how to carry out tasks – we simply do them habitually because it works. New ways of doing things, like social distancing, challenge us but begin to be habitual instincts in time. How strange it is to see crowds throbbing together now on television. The new normal is embedding! Getting more conscious of the way we do things however will help us be as adaptable and flexible as we can be… and also prevent us slipping into any unhelpful habits in challenging times.
