  14. 14. What People needed to do to be involved in this project? 1. Read about Project PALM by going to the TAFE Queensland Regional my.tafe site and reading the Project PALM information page 2. Contact their Institute Project PALM team facilitator for a chat about their idea/issue. They then collaboratively develop a Project PALM action plan that clearly articulates their PD needs and what they will do and what we as the PALM team will source and provide for them as part of their participation in this project 3. Obtain their manager’s signature on this action plan and document on the plan how they will be supported by their manager in this project. 4. Sign their draft plan and forward to their Project PALM facilitator. 5. Stay tuned to receive okay to participate and and be ready to commence their project after the Easter break. (10 week timeline – we promote at least a three hour a week time commitment as a guide= 30 hours over the semester)
  15. 15. Where are these project PALM activities being conducted?  The funded project participants are drawn from TAFE Queensland Regional Institutes – 46 Campuses  However there are ……options for those outside this TQR region to be involved!  Teaching and learning networks  Generic training accessible in multiple modes  Sharing of all outcomes across TAFE Qld
  16. 16. The Project PALM team has so far…. 1. Worked with participants/managers to develop an identified issue into an achievable semester 1, 2010 Project PALM action plan 2. Developed a communication portal for this project for team members 3.
