Online Education Pilot Project 2018

Online education committee logoThis project began in 2017 as an exploration of a workable model for monthly online education opportunities for any Toastmaster in D73. To date the Online Education Committee has successfully delivered six one hour sessions on a variety of topics in the months where it was deemed most appropriate and effective.

The structure for each one hour online session has now been fine tuned to include:

  • two x 15 educationals from different perspectives on the topic
  • discussion and Q & A after each educational
  • special Training Topics for 3-6 impromptu speakers
  • general discussion and information about next session

The format for each includes a Toastmaster, Timer and Topics Master plus two educational presenters. Each offers opportunities for Toastmasters to present educationals online for their own personal development.
