If you are an equestrian coach that is always looking for learning resources, you won’t want to miss the opportunity to attend the very first Learning Circle facilitated by the Australian National Equestrian Coaches Association (ANECA).
The first ANECA Learning Circle will take place online on Wednesday 29th September 2021 at 6pm AEST (9am UTC).
But be quick, register before Friday 24th September as the Learning Circle is limited to TEN participants and is filling fast.
Learning circles are an excellent and innovative form of collaboration between peers.
ANECA’s Learning Circles will bring together a small group of coaches (limited to TEN), who are interested in improving, modernising and optimising their equestrian coaching practices.
Although ANECA is based in Australia, the Learning Circle is open to coaches from all around the world who want to;
- build a Coaching Community, get to know one another and what you each do in your coaching lives,
- create a kind, safe, learning environment where new coaching protocols and practices can be shared to help you improve the quality of your coaching or solve issues you may be grappling with on your own
- unpack any particular coaching interests you may have, and wish to share
- share information and experiences in such a way that we identify key issues of interest or concern to you, which can form the basis of a series of future Learning Circles.
Learning circles encourage you to reflect on your work practice, test out ideas, work through issues and receive feedback with your peers in a structured time with a clear process.
Historically, learning circles have been used by many groups to bring together individuals interested in exploring ideas in a respectful learning environment.
The ANECA Learning Circle will be facilitated by former Olympic Coach Sue Halden-Brown, author of the Horses and People series ‘The Coaching Sweet Spot’.
Sue is a career coach educator, presently working as Coach Developer and Guest Lecturer with a Swedish University, on a major international project to develop a new equestrian pedagogy. Sue is also a keynote conference speaker, author of many coach education resources, and Founding President of Australian National Equestrian Coaches Association
The best coaches are always learning! Adding structure to learning activities improves your ability to use the knowledge immediately. This is a great way to spend a modest amount of time learning about coaching with a group of colleagues!
