Orientation for potential Artisan's Asylum instructors

DATE:  May 20, 2010     CATEGORIES:  News

We will be having an orientation meeting for anyone who would like to be considered as an instructor for the Asylum on Tuesday, May 25th, from 7 PM to 9 PM. If you’re interested in teaching at Artisan’s Asylum, attend this meeting. We’ll be going over the expectations on us as organizers, our expectations of instructors, compensation for instructors, how classes will be chosen, the driving goals behind our classes, and more. We’ll also be taking your comments, concerns, and feedback.

The meeting is open-invite, which means that everyone with interest is welcome to show up. If you can’t make it, that’s OK – we will be posting the PowerPoint we present and explaining all of our processes after the event, and you’re welcome to apply to teach a class with us regardless of attendance at this meeting. You will have to organize a time to meet with us before we can offer your class to our membership.

If you plan on attending this meeting, and intend on being considered as a potential instructor for the Asylum, we ask two things of you: (1) that you bring examples of past related work (whether by portfolio, by bringing physical items in, listing testimonials, etc.) with you, and (2) that you fill out this class survey by 11:59 PM on Sunday, 5/23/10:


Please fill the survey out once per class you’re interested in offering (whether you have different ideas for different results-based classes, or can teach multiple types of machine shop tool training classes). If you just have a class idea and want to refine them with us, or if you’re unsure about exactly what form the class would take, we encourage you to fill out the survey anyway and discuss your reservations in the comments section. We’ll get back to you soon.

NOTE: By filling out this survey, you’re indicating that you’re available to teach the class you describe on the days you indicate in the month of June. If your class is selected to be offered to our membership and it turns out you can’t make the times you indicate, you will not be allowed to teach at the Asylum again unless you have a very good reason for canceling. Please indicate any uncertainty you have in your scheduling in the comments and concerns section of the survey.

Thanks, and hope to see you soon!
