IDC Days 3 and 4

Well! The IDC progresses, this week with classroom presentations (scary!) and the beginning of some water work. We practiced our scuba skills to a "demonstration" level: Slow and easy and beautiful like a dance! We also presented our first "Confined Water" teaching presentations: Briefing, Demonstration, Problem-solving, and debriefing one particular skill.
The problem solving is the most fun, and the most nerve-rattling! Course Director Bob gives your "students" each a problem they need to have. You must catch the problem, teach the solution, and communicate effectively. It is rather fun, if I wasn't so scared that I will miss the problems during the Exam!
I did well on the Knowledge Review Classroom presentations: It seems to be all about jumping through the hoops and learning the system.
