Teaching Tips for Educators of the Healing Arts
In this daylong intensive workshop, I'll be sharing some basic skills that I use to make my lessons more effective, engaging and mostly importantly: FUN. Though lecture style teaching has its moments, there are so many more colors to the rainbow! Students understand so much more deeply when they are given space to engage the material directly, discover things on their own, interact with fellow students, test their knowledge and see concepts from multiple angles.
Here is a quick outline of the topics that well be covering:
- How to brainstorm class topics and write successful workshop titles
- Curriculum building and organizing (for single classes and series)
- Warm up activities and icebreakers
- Classroom management skills (how to manage difficult students, etc)
- Spicing up lecture style teaching
- Using visual aids
- Using group work effectively
- Comprehension check questions
This class is intended for those hoping to or already teaching in the healing arts field, though anyone is welcome.
Saturday, November 18, 10am-4pm (2019)
Participants: 12 max
Cost: $70-$120 sliding scale
Location: private residence in North Beacon Hill (address provided upon registration)
WHAT IS SLIDING SCALE?: Sliding scale uses a range of prices in order to cater to a wider range of financial abilities. Those with less financial ability pay the lower end of the range ($70), and those with more extra capital around pay more ($120). It's a self selective system that puts the decision in the hand of the individual. It's a way of being more inclusive while still making enough money to make it worth while for the teacher. Cool right? I also do consultations with sliding scale.
ABOUT THE TEACHER: Hey there! I'm Natalie, and I'm going to be teaching this class. I have been teaching herbalism full time for four years, and I taught ESL (English as a second language) for three years. I have hundreds of hours of teaching experience in classes of all sizes and demographs, in both one-off classes and long term programs. I really see teaching as my calling perhaps even more than plant medicine, which is why I wanted to offer this class for my peers. I am constantly striving to see how I can facilitate happy, healthy and effective learning environments, and I plan to share my findings with you in this daylong intensive.
