Teaching! Getting Started.

Teaching is a calling that often comes when mastery is attained. But making the transition from doing to teaching can be a perilous leap. This workshop is an opportunity to learn how to make that leap gracefully, elegantly, with planning, understanding, and a commitment that is true to self.

We will discuss the many opportunities to get started teaching, including one-on-one, informal small groups, and more formal settings, such as schools. You will gain some basic knowledge of generally accepted teaching methods, and have an opportunity to give a short talk, if you would like. You will have an opportunity to get clear on how and where you want to get started teaching, and begin to create a personal timeline for achieving your goals.

Two-day class, 9:30-6:00 each day, with 1 1/2 hour lunch. For 14 NCBTMB approved CE contact hours. Tuition $280.
