Due to the current Covid 19 crisis, all Teacher Talks will be held online over Zoom.
Teacher Talks will occur every second Friday of the month. These sessions are based on topics submitted by branch members.
The educational term for this is called a "Community of Practice". The definition is, "A community of practice is a group of people who share a concern or a passion for something they do, and learn how to do it better as they interact regularly. This definition reflections the fundamentally social nature of human learning" (Wenger-Trayner).
A reminder that all our gatherings are scent free (please refrain from wearing scented body products, or perfume).
All sessions are open to the non-Regina Branch Members.
BYOB - Please bring your own beverage (coffee, tea, water, etc).
RSVP: If you are planning on attending feel free to RSVP.

Friday, June 12, 2020:
General Session Topic: Special Presentations of Passion
Description: Do you have a passion you would like to share with other teachers? I am currently accepting presentations for the upcoming Teacher Talk on Friday, June 12. This is not to promote your own material, but rather to share your with teachers something you may be doing in your studio that you feel would benefit others. This could be from incentive programs to leading a discussion on a specific topic, to incorporating other approaches in your own teaching, to address the teaching of a specific piece or song. The length of your presentation can be anywhere from 10 minutes to 30 minutes (including time for questions). If you have a topic you are passionate about and would like to share with others in the online format of the Teacher Talk, please RSVP to Greg ASAP. This is on a first-come-first-served basis. If you have a topic/passion you would like to present, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the topic, a brief description, and the time required for your presentation. Please note that since this is a community of practice there is no remuneration for presentations, except for our gratitude and appreciation as we learn from each other.
