This workshop offers an opportunity to review and critique approaches to adult learning and teaching, including latest developments in research into the functioning of the brain, the contributions made by TA and other approaches, and the ways in which learning can be maximised at individual, group and organisational levels.
Learning Aims will include:
The workshops are of two days duration:
Day 1 - exploration of TA theory and application in a professional role
Day 2 - supervision, discussion, exam preparation - you set the agenda
The theory day is very interactive, with input and discussion, activities for exploration and for action. All participants are invited to share their knowledge and expertise and syndicate groups will allow for sharing, discovery, challenge and growth while learning together.
The supervision day that follows, is a place for the participants to create the agenda. Opportunities to give and receive supervision, to run a teach for feedback, to guide a discussion on theory or to explore a new exercise you have designed. Each session will be followed by a process review where possible, which offers an opportunity to practice our skills of analysis and reflection, for sharing our process and for deepening our knowledge of theory.
