Our Traditional program follows a constructive teaching philosophy in the development of their course outline. Each session builds from the previous session, allowing residents to gain a deeper understanding and insight into the field of interest. Some examples are “The Past 100 Years of Football”, “Talking to Animals”, “The Science of Animal behavior”, language courses, or “Music throughout the Ages”.
The topics in this program allow residents to get a broad overview of the field of interest, with emphasis on highlighting aspects that are most engaging and fascinating for the audience. The program presents a different aspect of the topic in a self-contained unit. For example, in our popular course “Where Biology Meets Fantasy”, we look at cryptozoology, the search for animals whose existence has not been proven. During the first session we look at Bigfoot, the second session, lake monsters, and the third session, displaced cryptids, looking at the Coelacanth, Tasmanian tiger and the big cats of Britain. Similarly, “The Schools of Psychology” look at different schools of psychology including psychoanalytical and Freud, Skinner and behaviourism, cognitive psychology and the humanistic approach.
Each topic within the field acts as a stand alone session and residents can attend as many, or as few sessions, without feeling that they are missing key aspects from the overall program.
Our Sample Bag program is a useful option when you are uncertain which topics will interest your residents. It provides a diverse program of one-off classes with a variety of topics allowing residents to have a “taste” of different subjects and teaching styles.
We have trialed this program and found it to be a huge success. Currently, the program consists of these topics:
- Australian Bush Poetry
- William Shakespeare’s version of the History of the English Kings
- What psychologists learnt from used car sales men
- Ghost tales
All Things Weird, Wacky and Wonderful
