#LEAPSTORIES -CAMERON

周日是我們Leap story的時間,跟大家分享LEAP的老師在離開第一屆夏令營後將近一年的時間內做了什麼,他們學了什麼,又是如何成長。

去年Cameron從澳洲飛到台灣幫我們上思辨課。他本身是公共事務的策略顧問,提供顧問服務給澳洲政府機構或社區組織,幫助他們有更好的教育、建康等領域的公共規劃。

他說,去年參加LEAP的經驗對他後來的工作產生很大的影響。他時常想起LEAP的思辨課,學生和輔導員來自於不同的教育背景,講不一樣的語言,看世界的角度也相當不同;但團體裡的每個人為了幫助彼此理解和學習,不論是透過重複說明、翻譯或用不同的方式解釋,這是很棒的事,因為我們是以單一群體去學習,而不是一群個體。

現在,當他籌辦社區成員和客戶的會議時,他嘗試營造和LEAP一樣的氛圍。上個月他參與某個偏鄉原住民社區的會議,討論從礦區轉型的未來經濟展望,其中在教育系統的研討會上,一切都很自然地連結起來了!會議的討論無論是來回地轉換英語或當地語言、從大團體到小團體,從內到外,都為了確保團隊中的每個人都可以參與並獻計。

Cameron今年因故不能回來參加LEAP的夏季工作坊,但他帶給我們的經驗將留下來,我們會持續努力做出更好的發展。

謝謝Cameron對他人巨大的貢獻、慷慨和承諾,LEAP很幸運擁有如此美好的人來協助我們的學生💖

It’s Sunday and time for our third, weekly leap story... the time we share what our leap teachers have been doing almost a year after the first leap, what they have learnt, how they have grown.


Last year Cameron, flew to Taiwan from Australia to teach a critical thinking class.

Cameron is a strategy consultant who works in public sector consulting. Currently he works with community organizations and governments around Australia to help them run better public programs in education, health, and much more. He said to us that his time at the LEAP has had a big impact on how He now approaches his work. He thinks about the workshop on Critical Thinking at the leap where students and facilitators all came from different educational backgrounds, spoke different languages, and had different ways of seeing the world. He said It was beautiful how, in this group, we all played a role in helping each other to understand and learn - by repeating things for each other, or translating to a different language, or explaining something a different way. We were learning as a single organism, instead of as a bunch of individuals.

Now, when he facilitate meetings with community members or clients, He tries to create this same atmosphere of the LEAP. Last month He facilitated meetings in a remote Indigenous community, which is planning what the future economy might look like as the region transitions away from mining. In one workshop, about the education system, everything seemed to click. The conversation moved back and forth from English to the local language, from big groups to small groups, from inside to outside - whatever felt right, to ensure everyone in the group could engage and contribute.

This year Cameron will not be able to come back to the leap but what he brought us will stay with us, and we will continue building upon it.

Thank you Cameron, for your enormous contribution, generosity and commitment to others. We are lucky to have such beautiful souls contributing to our students.
