Running short introductory courses and workshops for groups is a great way to introduce the Alexander Technique to newcomers.
You have the Alexander Technique expertise already – that’s the hard part. But do you know HOW people learn and how you can organise your existing knowledge to plan, set up and run workshops and short courses that will support and enhance their learning process?
Participant comment: The course was hugely informative. Caroline challenged us to think not in terms of what we plan to teach but what our students will learn and our need to assess their learning. I appreciated the demand to clarify our thinking and planning, which has already informed my teaching in individual and group sessions. Thank you Caroline for giving us very valuable tools for our work.
During the training, you will create your own introductory course or workshop, using the knowledge and resources you have developed. At the end of the course, you will be invited to give a micro-teaching session based on the course or workshop you have created.
- Assessing the needs of an adult group
- Identifying learning styles (including your own)
- Preparing a clear 4-week or one session workshop syllabus
- Designing and implementing up to 4 lesson plans
- Identifying a range of teaching resources
- Self evaluation
- Closing the course & how to achieve uptake by participants
- Micro presentation of your course/workshop to the group
Following this training, there will be an opportunity to discuss the establishment of a group of teachers who are keen to work collaboratively and to a shared standard, offering workshops, courses and talks to adult groups. The aim will be to take AT to a wider audience. Those interested should contact Caroline during or after the course.
Participant comment: Caroline ‘ s course on taking Alexander Technique workshops has really opened my eyes to how adults learn and how to consider these needs in both individual lessons and in a group setting. It has also made me focus on how I am actually going to do this in practice! I highly recommend it.
