The Possibilities of PATHWAYS - ACS Canberra Toastmasters

Wednesday, 07 Sep 2016

Toastmasters International will be launching a robust education program in January 2017, one that enables you to develop an array of skills that are relevant in your personal and professional life.

 

Toastmasters’ innovative new learning experience offers expanded education. “Our organization is all about helping people fulfill their potential, and Pathways embodies that concept,” says Toastmasters International President Jim Kokocki. “This is such a dynamic program for members: You’ll have the opportunity to develop more skills than ever before—skills that will help you succeed inside and outside of Toastmasters.”

Pathways was developed with these benefits for members:
*Recognition that comes earlier and more often in the educational journey
*New technological resources to improve speeches and support meeting roles
*Mobile access to educational materials (tablets)
*Expanded video and digital content to facilitate learning among our global community of members
*Stronger evaluation and mentoring components

“Pathways is going to be a world-class program that will help members succeed, and thrive, in an evolving global society,” says Kokocki.

The structure
Toastmasters Pathways will be offered online, and learning projects will feature many interactive tools, including quizzes, assessments, activities and videos.

Some of the new competencies are: understanding short- and long-term goals, speaking about personal strengths and weaknesses, answering questions effectively, leading with resourcefulness and flexibility, and demonstrating the value of volunteering.

The five core competencies were paired to form five disciplines. The program will launch with 10 different learning paths, based on these disciplines:
*Public Speaking + Interpersonal Communication
*Interpersonal Communication + Strategic Leadership
*Interpersonal Communication + Management
*Public Speaking + Management
*Public Speaking + Strategic Leadership
