Professional Development Workshops (PDW)
Many people express to us that they “want to help” but don’t really know how they can. In the past Canadian and Ugandan teachers have been brought together in order to facilitate professional dialogue and development. While this was and is a valuable process, it is specific and limited to accredited members of that profession. ISEE’s mandate includes professional development training and our vision is that this will be an inclusive, non-limited process that will match Canadian volunteers with any teachable, employment-relevant skill set to Ugandan learners and/or peers.
While specific training and accreditation is available to Ugandans in their own country, the programs offered are frequently very expensive and thus unattainable for many. Some skill sets are taught in an entirely theoretical fashion and would benefit from an inoculation of practical experience from a Canadian peer. Finally, materials, texts and/or documentation for some highly technical skills such as computer programming are simply not readily available in the country.
ISEE’s Professional Development Workshop (PDW) is a module designed to match a pre-selected learner group with a Canadian volunteer for two weeks of intensive training.
