Workshop Descriptions

One Day Format

Transforming Teaching Workshops:

UNDERSTANDING PERSONALITY FOR EFFECTIVE TEACHING AND LEARNING

  • Why is it you always fail to connect with some students in your classes?
  • Why in stressful situations such as being challenged about a grade do you find you are defensive and reactive?
  • You know people learn differently, how can you accommodate the different learning styles?
  • Your colleagues have different teaching styles, how does this impact learning?
  • Why do you get along well with some bosses, and are uncomfortable with others?

These questions and others asked by participants will be answered through personality analysis that offers many practical applications in the context of education. Participants share experiences and insights about their own teaching in a provocative, new paradigm.

Our one day workshop usually runs for about six hours — 9.00-12.00 p.m. — 1.00-4.00 p.m. — that sort of time frame. The workshop begins by participants taking the Triads Personality Indicator (TPI) which allows them to begin thinking about their personality according to the model we use. An explanation of the basis of the TPI follows. We watch an hour long specially created video, Nine Styles of Teaching in which nine educators discuss their teaching styles. There is time for self-reflection, Q&A, general discussion, intensive small group discussion on applications and implications of this new information for our classrooms. If there are three or four volunteers, we run one or two short panels (20-30 minutes).

In the concluding session, participants are presented with practical guidance on how to use this information in their professional lives. The one-day workshop is developed from the five day intensive National Educators Institute held annually at Milton Academy and offers the equivalent of six hours PDP points. Participants come away with identifying their teaching qualities and relating that knowledge into enhanced classroom performance. They find ways to deal with stress, and burn out. They learn how to target strategies for more effective teaching. Perhaps most importantly they are given the gift of innovation and renewal, a way to rekindle their enthusiasm, commitment, and confidence. This is solid, practical information for the classroom: one-on-one interactions, group dynamics, communication and presentation skills,so on.

We encourage you to make available copies of the new book by workshop leader Janet Levine, The Enneagram Intelligences (Greenwood Publishing Group.) The book covers in depth the material introduced in the
workshop. It is an effective practical guide. The fee for the workshop is $1,500 (includes materials) plus expenses (airfare and accommodation). If you have any questions, please call national organizer Regina Pyle at 617-312-9038.
