TI Website: Pathways Resources Available Soon
With Pathways starting to rollout across our District, it is fast becoming essential that we be able to log in to the TI website. Whether we want to access Pathways or just access the wealth of resources Toastmasters has created for us, each of us will need to know our individual usernames and passwords to access these resources. If you are unsure of how to log in to the TI website, use this whitepaper to learn how.
A Message about Pathways from your PQD
TI has started us on the Pathways Rollout, targeting us for March 2018 implementation. We must have our Pathways Ambassadors and Guides in place by December 5th. Once we have our Ambassadors and Guides in place, they’ll receive training. They then start going out in teams of two to visit clubs.
What can your club do to prepare for Pathways? I’m glad you asked.
- Find out who in your club is excited to embrace this new educational system. The District is asking each club to name a Pathways Champion, someone within the club who will:
- Be the first point of contact for our Ambassadors and Guides.
- Jump into learning Pathways and start working a new Path ASAP.
- Assist their club mates from time to time in learning Pathways.
- Your club should be ready to schedule an Ambassador/Guide team to visit and present in January – March. You should expect they’ll take 40 – 50 minutes, so for many clubs their visit will take the entire meeting.
- The Guide’s presentation will often require a laptop, projector and screen. You should survey your members to find out who owns these devices and is willing to bring them into a club meeting. This will make the setting up of an Ambassador/Guide visit easier. If your members do not own any of this equipment, let your Ambassador/Guide team know.
If you want to be your Club’s Pathways Champion, or are interested in being a Pathways Ambassador or Guide, contact… you guessed it… Kyle Hall.
Where Will Pathways Lead You?
Formerly known as the Revitalized Education Program, Pathways is Toastmasters’ exciting new educational program designed to help you build the competencies you need to communicate and lead. As with any new program, there will be a learning curve as you begin to explore the new tools and other educational materials included in Pathways. The leadership of District 32 has created this webpage to help you navigate through the new Pathways program and is committed to helping you continue your journey of personal and professional development. If you have questions that are not answered on this page, feel free to contact your Area Director.
