Transcript

  • 1. Diploma of Applied Permaculture Design Version 2.0 DRAFT for Local Enabling Organizations Presented by Gaia University, Peninsula Permaculture, AppleSeed Permaculture Endorsed by: ? (your organization!?!)
  • 2. Overview • Guiding Principles • Why create a Diploma? And some history. • Goals of the Diploma • How does it work? • Roadmap & Feedback
  • 3. Guiding Principles Goals Articulation • Agile Permaculture Design Process • Rapid prototype • Community feedback • Version deployment • Feature requests • Transparent roadmap
  • 4. Why a Diploma System? Goals Articulation • Post-PDC progression • Professional development of permaculture community • Dynamic of continual quality improvement • Teacher progressions
  • 5. A Brief History Site Analysis & Assessment; Survey • The first Diploma system - Mollison • The UK system - Langford et al • Other European Systems (IT, ES, DE) • Accredited Permaculture Training (APT - AU) • Chaordic Permaculture Institute
  • 6. A Brief History Site Analysis & Assessment; Survey • Earlier systems were versions 1.0, 1.1, etc. • Designed and implemented pre-computers • Lack of transparency, accountability, and no adequate compensation for mentors & advisors • Now, it’s time to design v2.0 • Transcends and includes learnings from all earlier versions
  • 7. Goals of v2.0 Diplomats • Post-PDC permaculture learning! • Project-based, diplomat-directed • Ongoing mentoring & support • Multiple concentrations & themes
  • 8. Goals of v2.0 Community • Grow the permaculture community • Held by bioregional organizations (e.g. RDI, FLPCI, PINE, etc.) • Shared processes & infrastructure • Grow the permaculture commons
  • 9. Goals of v2.0 Financial • Low financial barriers to participate • Community-supported funding • Scholarships available
  • 10. How does it work? An overview of the Diploma Process - Described in detail in following slides. Meet Dyami! She just finished a Design PDC, and wants to Packet keep learning. Action Learning Diploma Certificate 3 months accredited by local & intl Universities Gaia University, She signs up Design Prescott? Evergreen? for DAPD. Packet 01 0 Mo. 3 Mo. 1 Yr. ~2 Yrs. • Moves through a spiral of learning with mentoring, resources, self-review... after 10 design packets completed, she graduates!
  • 11. Suggested Themes Emerge through the course of the Diploma - Über-flexible • Site Design • Finance & Economics • Site Development • Manufacturing • Education • Media and Communications • Research • Administration • Art & Culture • Agriculture • Community Development • Other...
  • 12. Action Learning Certificate How does it work? • First 3 Months of a diploma - The basics of Action Learning • Modules: • Action Learning • Design Process & Skills • Documentation • Digital Literacy • The whole certificate is delivered online by west-coast team at Earth Action Mentor
  • 13. Action Learning Cycle How does it work? I consider my learning & unlearning needs I design my next I design projects to action learning cycle Each cycle deliver these needs with the benefit of produces a and stay alert for my new learnings & Design Packet unpredicted learnings unlearnings & unlearnings I reflect on my learnings & fully document the project’s outcomes and processes
  • 14. Design Packet How does it work? Example Design Packet (posted online with shared software) Design Project 05 - Forest Garden 1. Project Brief (Goals & Client Interview) 2. Site Analysis (Base maps, soils, water, etc) 3. Design - Drawings & Details - Design description • Learning Reflections: - Implementation plan - What went well? 4. Implementation evidence - What could be 5. Evaluation of Design improved? • Self-Evaluation
  • 15. Design Packet Technology How does it work? • Posted online with shared software • At first, use Gaia University E-Learning site (GEL) • Peer review becomes possible • Public display of best work spreads Example Design Packet permaculture meme Design Project 05 - Forest Garden • Export publishable 1. Project Brief (Goals & Client Interview) 2. Site Analysis (Base maps, soils, water, etc) 3. Design material to Earth - Drawings & Details - Design description • Learning Reflections: - Implementation plan Action Mentor - What went 4. Implementation evidence well? 5. Evaluation of Design - What could be
  • 16. Mentoring How does it work? • Local - through Local Enabling Organization • Online - through Earth Action Mentor
  • 17. Earth Action Mentor Permaculture Mentoring • Access to Premium Content • Mentors from various backgrounds and skill sets Community Inspiration •Discussion Forums •Live Conference Calls Direct Application •Tools to apply immediatly to your life •Design and Communication Training
  • 18. Community Supported Funding •Everyone pays low monthly fee to support the mentoring community •Operated out of 501c3 with all profits beyond operating expense going to support on-the-ground Casual permaculture projects and scholarships Learners Casual Learners Dedicated Students Diplomats Mentors
  • 19. Diploma Design on EarthActionMentor.org • Provide Distance Learning to enable anyone to have access to permaculture mentoring • Provide publication for portfolio • Assist diplomats studying at bioregional centers • Independent Study Curriculum, Learning Worksheets, videos, articles, interviews, case studies and valuable permaculture content to aid in students studies.
  • 20. Completion How does it work? • Congratulations!
