Summary: 

We know permaculture has answers, so if you've ever wanted to inspire others but haven't had the confidence this course is for you. This course is suitable for all abilities: both apprentice & experienced teachers & also for those who have just completed their Permaculture Design course (PDC). During the course we will be focusing on the tools & techniques for teaching & facilitating permaculture learning & the practicalities of convening & running courses. We won't be revisiting the topics on a PDC in any depth and so it is recommended that if your permaculture knowledge is a bit rusty that you do some preparatory background reading before the course.

The ToT will concentrate on permaculture training but the techniques covered can be applied to any other subject and hence the course would be valuable for any teacher wanting to expand their creative teaching techniques. The course will be lively and interactive on all levels using plenty of diversity in teaching styles. We intend to use the course as a working example of how much can be achieved in a short course using accelerated learning techniques. We will be looking at the whole process of running a course – from finding a venue and course publicity to evaluation and follow up.

Sessions covered: Setting training objectives ~ Training design ~ Teaching methods ~ Preparing training sessions ~ Training tools ~ Training needs assessment ~ Games and energisers ~ Facilitation skills ~ Micro-session preparation ~ Presentation skills ~ Rapport building ~ Convening courses ~ Course design ~ Learning methods ~ Assessment and evaluation ~ Follow up

We aim to empower people to realise their own skills as facilitators and will be using methods for building confidence of the participants throughout. This will culminate in each participant giving a micro-teach to put into practice what they have learned.

A Social Permaculture Approach to Education, Leadership and Group Facilitation

Re-Green Ecoculture Center is delighted to welcome Robin Clayfield to run her highly-acclaimed 'Dynamic Groups' course this August.

The course is a professional development training and cutting edge learning methodology to gain more skills, confidence and processes that inspire, inform and create success in all our groups and learning environments.

In Dynamic Groups, Dynamic Learning, the jigsaw puzzle of groups learning and working together becomes an adventure in Creative Facilitation, Interactive Learning Methods, Personal Empowerment, Confidence Building, Workshop Planning and Skills Development.

The course supports people to facilitate, teach, train or present any topic or subject, or lead a meeting or group in a way that engages people, is motivating, fun and memorable and where everyone in the group has input and consequently is empowered by the experience.

If you are willing to look past the expert, dominant and hierarchical process called teaching, to a more interactive, participatory process of encouraging learning, this is the course for you; be part of the new learning revolution and go home with a tool box of processes in order to support your own groups.
Run By Robin Clayfield from Australia. www.dynamicgroups.com.au
