This playful, two-hour online training explores the meaning of creativity and creative engagement; aging, ageism and dementia; and how to practice the TimeSlips method. With the training, you get access to an online toolkit of support materials to help make your service-learning experience successful! A super-brief survey opens and closes the training – it is part of our ongoing research about the impact of the training and is totally optional.
As an individual student, you might take the training as part of your own individual project for a class. You will go through the online training, then arrange to volunteer at a care setting to facilitate storytelling workshops. You can do this alone, but we recommend that you do it as part of a team of 2-3 student facilitators. Each care setting will have different rules for volunteering. Be sure to learn if you need a background check or a flu or TB shot. There are online resources for you to your in your Student Toolkit, accessible as part of the training. If you are signing up as part of a Creative Campus (your campus has a partnership with TimeSlips), use your discount code to access the training.
