A good exercise for sound post is to get a clip of something that moves, anything from a door close to some mechanical contraption, and break it down for sound.
What are the parts you need to get to make it sound "real". On a door you have hinge noise, maybe a creek, maybe a grind? The wind of the door closing (depending on speed). The hit of the latch on the strike plate and the mechanics of the door latch. The hit of the door in the frame. If there is a glass pane maybe some glass rattle. If the latch is not tight the door may rattle after it hits. If someone is closing the door you have the working and release of the door handle and the latch.
Once people start breaking things down they will find lots of interesting sounds in the world because they won't hear the "door close" but a series of a bunch of sounds that make up that door close.

Alex: Checked it, we love you man. Christelle is writing some exercises she's done to share back with you guys I'll post them soon
Noiz: This is the right track. Identification I guess. It's like what does my ear actually hear, versus how my brain fills in the gaps. I have the same with drawing, and blown highlights or dark shadows come to mind (those moments where it's all white or all black but you know what's there so your brain fills in the gap).
I will share a few up here, and let you guys know how things work with the class. If it's ok with the mods (alex) maybe when students are done they can put their stuff here for critique?
You guys are awesome thx
