TTI's Training of Trainers - Philly, December 4-6, 2019

Event Details

Our hallmark Transgender Training-of-Trainers (TOT) is a professional development course for educators, trainers and facilitators who are interested in teaching transgender content to adults. Over the course of three days, we break down each of the elements of a successful “Transgender 101” training and help our participants to hone their skills to deliver highly impactful trainings. Using The Teaching Transgender Toolkit: A Facilitator’s Guide to Increasing Knowledge, Decreasing Prejudice & Building Skills as a textbook for this course, we help prepare educators to implement the lesson plans included in the book and provide support around aspects of nuanced facilitation such as responding to Frequently Asked Questions, handling challenging participants, addressing microaggressions and managing resistance or social justice fatigue.

Dates & Times:
This course will run 10 AM - 6 PM for each of the three days, December 4,5 & 6.

Who Should Attend:
This course is designed for individuals who have a solid transgender knowledge base and are interested in teaching this content to other adults. In order to get the most out of this TOT, all attendees should have and a strong foundational understanding of transgender identities/experiences, and ideally some experience as a trainer /facilitator, but that is not required. Participants who do not have a solid foundation should consider signing up for our Ally/Advocate Training Camp prior to signing up for our TOT.

People of all gender identities and expressions are welcome in our TOTs and we consistently strive to create a learning space that is fully affirming. Our trainings draw participants from all over North America, and a wide variety of implementation settings, including: K-12 schools, diversity trainings, colleges and universities, public health organizations, direct service and community based organizations, and corporate environments.
