Once again, thanks to the support of ACE Aotearoa and in conjunction with WACEA (Waitakere Adult Community Education Aoteaora), we are able to offer a session of Professional Development to those working in the Adult Education sector. Last year’s workshop day was well supported and the response from the attendees was that they wanted more.
This year’s PD day for tutors and workers in the ACE sector in Auckland is all about facilitation. It will be held on Friday 9th October, in New Lynn if Alert Levels permit, or online if not. It covers tutoring as facilitation, facilitation as tutoring – tutoring adults effectively requires more than just ‘teaching’ skills. We are offering a facilitation workshop like no other with master facilitator, Cissy Rock. Topics will include understanding group processes and encouraging participation from all learners, including ways of making your tutoring more student-centred. Cissy will help you build your leadership toolbox and provide tips for dealing with the unexpected.
We are also bringing in Pale Sauni, talented educator, as a keynote speaker, to tell us his story in his unique and entertaining way.
Colin McGregor from ACE Aotearoa, who is sponsoring our PD event, will update us on what’s happening in the rapidly changing ACE sector.
This is an opportunity to join and network with others in the sector, soak up some Westie hospitality, share great food, refresh yourself and take a day out to nurture yourself in this crazy time. Here is the full programme: ACE PD Hui programme Oct 2020
The venue is the New Lynn Friendship Club located behind our Literacy Waitakere offices. It’s close to the New Lynn train and bus hub and has free parking on site and adjacent.
The venue is large enough to ensure social distancing, so fingers crossed we will be in a low enough Covid level to go ahead unimpeded, but we have a webinar option available.
