TA Culture and Reflective Practice
What are the elements of TA culture of which we need to be aware when working in other contexts? How does the TA culture compare with the cultural context of your clients? Analysis context and culture is a major part of the skillset of a TA Practitioner - we need to be able to then reflect systemically on what the possible issues might be as we enter into a culture. We also need to be able to effectively reflect on our own frame of reference and culture in order to connect successfully and with positive challenge.
The Learning Aims for this module are:
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.
