If you have a need for academic staff development, including development related to teaching, research, administration and career/personal development, we can help. We work closely with a trained team of staff who can develop, deliver and evaluate targeted pedagogy training for particular audiences.
We provide personal educational development, which involves active work with teachers on developing teaching, learning and assessment strategies and research into pedagogic issues at the college and university levels.
We can provide single consultations as well as develop a training plan depending on articulated needs. Some areas of focus include: Lesson Plan Development, Case-based Learning, Inquiry-based Learning, Problem-based Learning, Service-based Learning, Integrating Technology into Your Teaching Practice.
We can also assist with the construction of teaching strategies for the above and appropriate evaluation tools to measure success.
You can choose from basic teaching workshops that provide professional development opportunities, or enjoy the opportunities to reflect on and synthesize learning about teaching.
Creating the Desired Learning Environment
In a fast paced ever changing world our employees must be willing to change their attitudes and behaviours accordingly. In order to foster this attitude, as an employer, you must ensure that your work environment encourages learning. EJP Communications can help you to develop the desired learning environment to ensure your employees continue to grow and advance both their goals and the organization’s goals.
If you have identified a weakness in your organization and believe that training will help to reduce this weakness then a Needs Analysis is the place to start. EJP Communications can conduct this analysis to determine what training is required. We can take it to the next level and help you develop the right curriculum and program.
Through the application of pertinent Adult Education Principles, EJP Communications can design and assist in the implementation of an effective training program. EJP Communications will ensure the training program not only meets but exceeds your expectations.
Examples of past Curriculum Design include:
Communication in the Workplace
Diversity in the Classroom
Balancing Personal and Professional Lives
Creative Teaching Strategies
Job Search Skills
Training and upgrading skills is an accepted component of any organization. If this learning is not evaluated properly companies will not know how effective any workshop, course or learning session has been. EJP Communications can help you to evaluate what has been learned and more importantly the impact on the organization.
Learner Engagement in Online Environment
Many companies are moving to online or e-learning for training programs. Although this may seem like an easier alternative online learning brings with it a different set of issues. EJP Communications can ensure that the online programs you design will engage your learning and therefore create effective courses or sessions.
If you are investing into a training program then evaluating your program is a must. EJP Communications can help you evaluate your current program and then suggest improvements and aid in the implementation of these improvements.
