TCAL Instructional Video Launch
September 8 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm AEST
TCAL is excited to share with you the first of a series of locally made videos created as a resource for Tasmanian practitioners.
The Tasmanian Council of Adult Literacy (TCAL), supported by the Department of State Growth, Libraries Tasmania and 26TEN, have developed a suite of adult literacy tutor training videos. TCAL has been working on a Workforce Development Grant Project over the past couple of years and these videos are a product of that and an excellent collaboration and creation of local resources.
The first video will be launched on Thursday the 8th September. It is one of a series of 8 short videos that demonstrates a range of contemporary, evidence-based activities recommended for adult, one-on-one literacy tutor training. Tasmania Libraries’ Senior Literacy Advisor has curated the content and led a working group and dedicated time to creating accompanying Tutor Tip Sheets. These resources will be used in the Libraries Tasmania Adult Literacy Service by Literacy Coordinators and adult literacy and numeracy tutors. They will also be freely available online for use in the wider adult literacy sector.
At this event, we will share the phonemic awareness video, be regaled with two speeches, thank all those who have made this possible and present our volunteers with a gift for their participation.
It is anticipated that these resources will be utilised more widely and TCAL welcomes other stakeholders and service providers to attend. To make the launch as inclusive as possible, it is a free event where people can attend in person or choose to watch the live stream via our Facebook page. This is the first time we have hosted such an event and it’s traction and the number of people that have replied already is exciting!
Please join us for the state-wide launch of these contemporary adult literacy resources.
