WI Technical Assistance Professional

In this nine-hour course we dig deeper into what it takes to provide relationship-based professional development for adults throughout the early childhood and youth work fields. We explore ways to mentor, coach and consult for inquiry, reflection and leadership. Technical assistance is also an art – the art of communicating to support awareness that leads to change. We offer opportunities to brainstorm and solve some of the common issues around technical assistance. Finally, you complete a reflective professional development plan and receive feedback from the course instructor.
