BEtreat California is hardly over and we’re busy planning for the next one in October. This time in Canada.
This is the second BEtreat workshop we’ve done outside California. The first was in a beautiful wine estate near Cape Town in South Africa, and this one which, we hear, is amongst beautiful wine estates in Pentincton, BC.
Each time we do a BEtreat workshop somewhere else we find ourselves revisiting what it means to be a BEtreat workshop for leaders of social learning, communities and networks.
What distinguishes it from other workshops we do? While we can’t quite put our finger on it, it includes the following:
- Four days in an informal and special setting
- Small groups focusing on each person’s project
- Integration of online and face-to-face activities
- A feeling that we are pushing the practice together
What they say
Two quotes from BEtreaters this year reminded us of what we are trying to do:
I’m so energized I’m dangerous, Jacquie McDonald (Queensland University, Australia)
Each time I come I think: “It can’t get better”. But it does. (Julie Duffield, WestEd, California)
Sylvia Currie (left) and Leva Lee (right) participated in the BEtreat workshops in 2012, face-to-face and online respectively. They are our wonderful partners on behalf of BCcampus in making this workshop happen.
