Jude and her co-instructors use a combination of interactive lectures, power points, structured discussion, small groups and hands-on experience to assist participants to gain the tools needed to either teach, or guide the design process, for sustainable, ecologically-based homes, farms, businesses and communities. We appreciate the unique skills and experiences of those attending and cultivate networking for future connections and support.
An Introduction to Cascadia Permaculture’s Advanced Permaculture Course in Teaching
Sharing information is Regenerative ~ Be Part of the Solution
Empower yourself to advocate for change through whole systems design and teaching! 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.
As a group we facilitate a safe setting of active learning, building confidence by experiencing essential practice via preparing and co-teaching multiple presentations.
As with a Permaculture Design Course, in this teacher training we offer practical solutions for sharing information, which is essential in these current times. We have had great success teaching, and are advocates for the Mollisonian Standard Permaculture Design Course curriculum. We also believe each course taught needs to speak directly to local conditions and the specific skills of the presenters’ team.
Jude has taught this course almost thirty times and it is never the same way twice… As proactive educators we are constantly adjusting the way a workshop or course is presented…creating innovative experiences that address varied learning styles while moving from theory to practice
Topics includes: Philosophy and Ethics of Teaching * Teaching systems, principles and Patterns * Building Curriculum and Course Modules Based on the Mollisonian PDC * Recognizing Your Learning Style(s) and How It Impacts Ways of Teaching * Lecture, storytelling, class discussions, interactive activities, visual aids and more * The Art of Facilitation: Via Examples & Role-Play * Organizing a Class or Workshop: From Planning to Implementation * Evaluations and feedback * Tips of the Trade *Abundant resources * And more
This is a Certificate Course offered by Instructors from the Permaculture Institute of North America in collaboration with Cascadia Permaculture Institute.
