Teaching Essentials Program August 2016

November 2, 2016

CAE, Teacher Ed, TEP

19 instructors of the Red River Faculty went back into the classroom in August…as Students! Most participants were new or almost new members of the RRC Staff from all over Southern Manitoba. On the agenda: best practices for teachers of Adult Learners. Most instructors will be enrolling in, or have already enrolled in the Certificate Program. Thanks to Theresa, Judy, Doug and our panels of experts (expert students and expert instructors) for helping all these new instructors to ease their way into the classroom.

Teaching Essentials goes CAE!

February 18, 2014

All the TEP participants were invited to take their Certificate in Adult Education courses together as a cohort.  The first course, Introduction to Instruction, began mid-January with 17 faculty.  In March, the group will take their second course, Instructional Methods.  More TEP participants will join the second course as a few new faculty members had already taken Introduction to Instruction.  By June, 25 new faculty will have completed three CAE courses together in the first ever CAE/TEP cohort.
