Just a reminder about the APT Longford Academy (LA2) to be held 16-20 May 2011 in Tasmania, for which registrations close on 30 April 2011. LA2 provides opportunities for exploration of conservation issues, including relationships between fabric and contents, at two World Heritage inscribed places in Northern Tasmania.
The APT collaborative learning model provides outstanding opportunities for R&R for experienced practitioners as well as a great opportunity for less experienced members. Participants who are not already members of APT (Association for Preservation Technology) can save more than $100 on course registration by joining APT today.
I urge you to give consideration to participating in this ‘course’, or to promote it to your staff and professional colleagues, to enhance your, and their, life-long learning.
There is little distinction between ‘teacher’ and ‘student’ in the APT model of collaborative learning. It is not about teaching. It is about sharing knowledge and learning.
If the cost of travel and accommodation is a barrier for you or others who might wish to join the ‘course’, please look again at the Jetstar and Virgin Blue websites at flights into Launceston. Transport will be available from Launceston. The course venue is only a 10 minute drive from the airport. And although it might be a bit cold for camping, the shared B&B accommodation on site is available for around $70 per night.
Please think about it over Easter and make your commitment to ongoing professional development for yourself and others. Download details for registration, along with the case study notes, for further information.
I look forward to seeing you there.
