In this dynamic and interactive course, you learn significant teaching techniques to communicate and apply Permaculture principles and strategies to a wide variety of audiences and educational settings. Our goal is to encourage and inspire your unique strengths and abilities by demonstrating diverse teaching modalities including effective use of lecture, storytelling, class discussions, interactive experiential activities, visual aids and hands-on skills.
Participants build facilitation skills, learn module development techniques, practice social permaculture and build strong networks of their assets and resources that they will use to support one another individually and via group projects.  As a class we create a safe setting of active learning and build confidence through preparing and co-teaching multiple presentations for essential practice.
