Understand your audience

Understanding your audience is key. What is the educational and training background of your students? How much background knowledge and skill do they have? Do you have anything to build on, or do you need to build up a foundation of basic knowledge and skills? Do you just need to do a short refresher session before introducing new material? What about the students' motivation? How will they use the educational content presented in the future? How can you as a teacher promote transfer of classroom training into the practice setting?
