Update from Texas CASA on COVID19

The Texas CASA education and learning team invites network training staff to come together in Austin on March 24-25 for a two-day interactive facilitation workshop focused on transformational learning in the CASA classroom.

Deepen your fluency in creative participant-centered learning practices, expand your canon of powerful stories to illustrate nuanced learning objectives, connect with training peers from around the state and learn best practices from one another on leveraging evaluations and other strategies to further strengthen your program’s volunteer pre-service training.

Rural programs: we heard you! Feedback from the network following our last series of train the trainer workshops emphasized the need for more support around covering the full scope of pre-service curriculum for programs with condensed classroom hours. To effectively address this gap, the Texas CASA training team has partnered with experts in instructional design and remote learning to create immersive e-learning modules that creatively replicate seven hours of in-person pre-service training. We are currently in the process of converting seven more classroom hours into this easily accessible, interactive online format. This workshop will include a breakout group focused on troubleshooting implementation of this blended learning curriculum.

Registration is free! Fill out the form below to register.
