The following is a list of teaching methods, learning activities and teaching aids.  They have been suggested by teachers and trainers (from various backgrounds and disciplines) during training sessions I have conducted.  They are included here with little attempt to differentiate which category a suggestion belongs to, but rather to illustrate the diversity of resource available to teachers, trainers and learners.  Perusal of the list can act as a reminder of the need to inject variety into the teaching and learning environment.
