PD Academia Sessions for Staff

This year we have partnered with PD Academia to provide some options for Staff in roles other than teaching. These are developed for TA's, admin staff and others who are interested. To sign up for either of these, please contact Anita Rong directly, before 4pm, Weds 8 Nov. 

9-11am HUB Link: Knowing the People You Serve & Their Preferences

To support and serve others more fully, it is vital to be attentive to them to know who they are and what they want. Participants will learn about profiling. Active listening establishes connections between participants and the people they support and serve, which allows for ease of interaction and ensures that messages are being related completely and accurately. This will encourage these people to express themselves more clearly and candidly.

1-4pm HUB Link: Collaboratively Communicating to Solve Problems

To communicate effectively and influence others, we need to understand ourselves and how our priorities affect others. Participants will use a temperament profile assessment to become more interpersonally aware and identify strategies for working effectively with people that have different priorities to their own.
