Tonight we wrapped up our 5th of the 6 week distance-seminar for Young Adult & Campus Ministry Professionals. Rev. Mary Ann Macklin of Bloomington IN was our special guest, Devon Wood of Pittsburgh helped faciliate as I was in a meeting with local and district YACM Leaders from the Mountain Desert District in Denver CO at First Universalist Church.
A number of ideas have come up for improving the seminar including: limiting the number of participants to 10, having homework activities that include one on one with other participants, continue to update the readings, have guest speakers for 3 or 4 instead of 2 of our 6 week activities, and document some of the norms for participation that we’ve established for teleconference and online sessions.
I look forward to sending the participants in this pilot seminar their certificates of completion next week after our last session!
