Cultural humility for adult educators

Date: December 6

Time: 5:30pm - 7:00pm CT

Location: Zoom

Fee:

  • Free for members

  • $15 for non-members

Have you heard about cultural humility but aren't really sure how it applies to your work in adult education? In this training, we'll discussion it and the progression of that term (remember cultural awareness?). Attendees will explore unconscious biases and investigate how these biases can be impacting the experiences of their adult learners. 

All of this is with the goal of moving towards cultural safety as a field. Adult Education workers already prioritize the well-being of their learners, cultural humility is just another step in creating welcoming spaces for everyone. 

This training is part of our Student Support series. Content is designed adult education workers (teachers, tutors, administrators) in mind, although everyone is welcome! 

Sharing your Insights: Techniques for Aspiring peer trainers

Date: December 14

Time: 5:30pm - 7:00pm CT

Location: Zoom

Fee:

  • Free for members

  • $15 for non-members

Calling every adult educator that has something to share with their peers!

 

Have you ever wanted to try presenting at a conference (or at Literacy Works?) but aren't sure how to start? Join us for this new training to see how you can start sharing your insights with a wider audience. 

Adult Education is a practice profession which means we're always learning something new about our work! The problem is, we don't always get a chance to share our lessons with others and then we all end up reinventing the wheel instead of pushing our field forward. Conferences are filled with "experts" but your voice and experience as workers in the field should be amplified too! 

 

In this training, we'll share techniques around conferences

 

  • how to come up with an idea and create an outline

  • how to write a proposal

  • how to prepare

  • how to present your workshop

  • how to network and present at another conference

Attendees will also have the opportunity to meet with the facilitator afterwards for coaching on their own peer training goals. 

This training is part of our Program Operations series. Content was designed with Adult Education teachers and administrators in mind, but everyone is welcome!
