Catalyst Consulting provides workshops designed to improve student training methods for operations and programs staff with direct student contact. We discuss how to develop a strong culture of learning and engage students from day one of the training program. The workshop focuses on how to improve communication regarding student progression among different departments to provide a holistic approach to the student experience and training progress.
Workshop facilitator Justin Smith, CK Program Development Manager, has years of experience in student training, curriculum development, and knowledge of the social enterprise training model. He has seen first-hand the complicated nature of translating professional kitchen experience into effective teaching and hands-on training practices. This workshop gives chefs and front-line instructors the tools and techniques to more effectively coach, teach, and provide critical feedback to their training populations.
Workshop Topics Include:
- Coaching Champions: Creating a culture of learning
- Teaching and Instruction Best Practices: Leading effective classroom and kitchen lessons for diverse learners
- Evaluation Best Practices: Writing regular, effective, and useful student evaluations
