Douglas College > Programs & Courses > Continuing Education > Perinatal Programs for Professional Development > Childbirth Educator Training Program - Teaching Skills Workshop
The Douglas College Teaching Skills Workshop incorporates the latest concepts of Brain Science based learning to provide an innovative and exciting approach to teaching effective and enjoyable childbirth education classes.
With the goal of creating classes that decrease fear and encourage confidence this workshop will give you the tools and activities to present even the most challenging topics in a reassuring, evidence based way.
This hands-on workshop provides many opportunities for discovering and practicing new ways to teach with a view to designing classes that actively engage with the adult learner. You will leave many tools to help you reduce lecturing and increase active participation in your classes.
The geography of our region presents many unique problems for educators so participants are encouraged to discuss the specific challenges they face as prenatal instructors working in their communities and explore ways to meet these challenges.
Come prepared to spend time with other interesting and like-minded educators, doulas and nurses while being challenged to try new things and have fun.
