New students started their adaptation to Helmi educational methods on Monday:
Anu shows here the minimum of obligatory studies for the starts.We all know that the maximum is the amount you can hold in your arms at a time. Then of course there is the universe of information, knowledge and legends. These are all we need when learning tourism. But the unit one can adopt at a time is as been described above.
Did you know this good method of taking notes: allow yourself both of the empty pages of your notebook, write the ”important” issues on either one of the pages and scribble and bibble what ever comes to your mind on the other page. Then check your notes a few days later: and you will have a perfect recollection! Because you have used both sides of your hardware, the left and the right side of your brain.
Maarit is discussing with Leydy and Diane about the Finnish language and Anna is observing.
At the Theatre Museum on Wednesday
There are so many methods of teaching but probably only one way of learning: You only learn what you get interested in.
There are equally as many ways of guiding the visiting groups. The excellent guides in the Theatre museum knew how to brake the ice.The visitors need the story and the tools. The visitors themselves decide if this is an interesting target or not.
The best method to learn tourism is to train with your colleagues. The tourism production is using the traditions that are building the bridges between the cultures. The play (it means both playing as children and playing in the theatre) The traditions and myths tell about everything. They date back from thousands of years ago. In the museum there were theatre masks from all big cultures of the earth. Here above the western tradition from the Antiquity, ancient Greece. We were introduced first our own methods of playing different masks. Rose-Mari plays scary monster. Very good!
Tourism utilises also gothic horror. For your information Dr Emma McEvoy ,University of Westminster, UK is lecturing in Tampere University on 18th September ”The Devil at Berry Pomeroy: Literature, Tourism and Folklore” at 12-14, classroom Pinni B3107. More of the subject: http://www.uta.fi/ltl/plural/ilmoitus.html?id=98354. It is not a joke. A pity that the mystery of Jack the Ripper is now solved by the Finnish Jari Louhelainen.
”Hello, – you heard people laughing? Yes we are all learning here in the Theatre Museum and we are having a good time. Who is this please?”
”Its me. Willy. I am sure you will have great studies ahead!”
