Fully Booked: Sounds-Write Practitioners’ Online Training
Course dates: 12th February– 26th March 2022
Bookings/Administration: Alison Perry (Speech Pathologist, Soundality)
Trainer: Sarah Horner (experienced Sounds-Write trainer & specialist teacher).
The Sounds-Write Practitioners’ Online Training is based on the popular four-day face-to-face course and consists of six carefully structured, online modules delivered over six weeks. At the start of each week, new content is made available. Set tasks need to be completed within that week but you can study at your own pace.
The course contains lectures about the theory behind Sounds-Write, demonstrations of the Sounds-Write lessons, and videos of the lessons being delivered in classrooms in Australia and the UK. There are also online quizzes and video assignments deepen your learning. You can discuss your thoughts with other participants and post questions for your trainer in the discussion forum. Weekly, live Zoom sessions with your trainer are offered to support your learning. These sessions are recorded for those participants who cannot join live.
Structure of the course and time commitment
Week 0: approximately 2 hours of work: this is mainly to enable you to find your way around the platform, introduce yourself and meet your trainer and other trainees. The course includes a discussion forum where you will be able to ask questions, and where you will contribute to some course discussions.
Weeks 1-4: approximately 8-12 hours of work per week. Each week will be made available on a consecutive Saturday. You will have to cover the content of that week during that week.
Week 5: approximately 2 hours of work: this week has no formal new content, but you will be able to revisit anything in the course before the course closes. At the end of week 5, the course website will close and you will no longer have access to the online course.
