Pathways Evaluation Forms

Pathways

PATHWAYS EVALUATION FORMS

Evaluations are a fundamental part of Toastmasters. We learn and improve by giving and receiving good evaluations.

In a verbal evaluation, the evaluator begins with what they did well, makes a few suggestions for improvement, and then concludes their evaluation with what they did very well, followed by a summary.

Pathways projects include either one or two speeches that needs to be delivered to complete the project.

Following are the evaluation forms for all the Pathways projects. They are PDFs. In most cases, they contain editable fields. This means the evaluator can type the evaluation directly onto the form if they wish, and email it to the speaker.

Alternatively, you can click on the link, download the form to your computer and print it.

Pathways Base Camp Duties

PATHWAYS

Base Camp Manager Duties

By Sam Mehta, DTM, PDG

Pathways Base Camp

We have been recently informed by Toastmasters International that Pathways educational program will be roll out in District 65 during May of 2018.

In each club, the vice president education (VPE) will serve as the Base Camp Manager, with support from the club president and secretary. The VPE is responsible for conducting several tasks in Base Camp to ensure members are fully supported on their Pathways journey. The link below will walk you through each of the main tasks. Each task has a tutorial in Base Camp which will walk you through the specific steps. They can be accessed by navigating to Tutorials and Resources. All current and future club VP Education are requested to study the tutorials and become ready to work with members of your club in making a smooth transition to Pathways program.

https://www.toastmasters.org/Education/Pathways/Volunteers/Ambassadors/~/media/5C019BDA16BD482EA4E4F56C98912F61.ashx

I believe that in Toastmaster year starting 2018-2019, one of the most vital and significant position in the club will be of the VP Education. I suggest that membership in all clubs in district 65, elect, appoint, or choose one of the most experience and tech savvy member in their respective clubs, in order to have a smooth and effective transition into Pathways program.

Pathways – Here We Go

Pathways – Here We Go

By Sam Mehta, DTM, PDG, Pathways Chief Ambassador

Since TI has informed us the tentative roll-out date of May 2018 for Regions 8 & 9, I have done some “preliminary planning of estimated dates” of major milestones that will need to be accomplished in order to have a successful roll-out of Pathways in District 65. I am making an assumption here that May 31, 2018 [verses say May 1, or May 15, 2018] will be the roll-out date and based on this roll-out date, the following items/actions will need to be complied with in 2018.

14 to 18 weeks prior to roll-out: [January 15, 2018 to February 15, 2018]

PQD and CA will receive a Pathways Guide Selection Process Checklist and other resources to assist them with screening on Pathways Guide for every 10 clubs in the district.

Two to nine weeks prior to roll-out: [March 21, 2018 to May 15, 2018]

Pathways Guides and/or Ambassadors will contact club leaders to schedule a club visit.

Two to six weeks prior to roll-out: [April 15, 2018 to May 15, 2018]

A Pathways Guide and Ambassador will visit each club to train members on starting their Pathways journey. During these visits, the pathways Guide and Ambassador will deliver the Pathways Learning experience presentation and roll-out kit.

Six Weeks prior to roll-out to 12 weeks after roll-out: [April 15, 2018 to August 31, 2018]

Pathways Guides will share their virtual support session with club leaders and collect questions to address during the session.

Additional Resources:

There are many additional resources available to assist club members and club leaders in their Pathways journey. They include tutorials, FAQ’s, quick reference guides and more. Many of them can be found on “Base camp” and will be accessible once Pathways has rolled-out in our district.

Needless to say, that if there are any delays in roll out of Pathways in other Regions where the roll-outs are scheduled prior to Region 8 & 9 [January 2018 thru’ April 2018] the May 2018 for D-65 will naturally be postponed. However the above time-table of milestones that will need to be accomplished will remain, but will be based on a different roll-out date for district 65.

Once again the purpose of the above “preliminary planning of dates” is to make key stakeholders in the district aware of this time-table, as well as in informing and communicating with the D-65 membership at-large.

TI has prepared a formal PATHWAYS Preparation Schedule”. Here is the link:

Hope everyone has a great Holiday Season. Then get ready for the Pathways in 2018.

Pathways – May 2018

Pathways Coming to District 65 in May 2018

By Sam Mehta, DTM, PDG

Sam Metha

Per the recent announcement (Oct. 10, 2017) by Toastmaster International, the Pathways rollout in Region 9, which include District 65 and five additional districts, is estimated to take place in May 2018.

There are eight separate Regions that plan to have their respective roll-outs, starting December 2017 through April 2018. Regions 8 & 9 are the last two Regions that will have their roll-outs planned in May 2018.

Some of you may know, that District 57 in Northern California along with District 27, in the Baltimore/Washington D.C. area and District 51 in Khulna Lumpur, Malaysia, were among the first “pilot” districts where Pathways was rolled out in Feb., March and May 2017, respectively. The pilot program in these three districts was successfully completed in September 2017 and a large number of Toastmasters are already using Pathways in these three districts.

The selection and appointment process of ‘Pathways Guide” will begin approx. 3-1/2 months before the district roll-out date. The club visitation visits and virtual support session will begin approx. 6 weeks before roll out.

There are numbers of Pathways related materials and videos available on TI’s website. Toastmasters in D-65 are encouraged to visit TI’s website and see the latest information and videos posted by fellow Toastmasters who are already experiencing the Pathways educational programs and their benefits.

Here are some of the testimonials from fellow Toastmasters, sharing their personal experiences. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hPHILN_rjZo

There are several other pertinent videos available on TI’s Pathways website, showing for example “How to download your Pathways Manual.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXR-BO6E7qM

Visit https://www.toastmasters.org/Pathways-Overview and watch COO, Sally Newell Cohen’s 5-part videos on Pathways.

Also please review the FAQs on TI’s website. They are frequently being updated by TI, as new questions and concerns are being addressed.

Once the Pathways roll-out date for D-65 is finalized (currently planned in May 2018) members perusing various educational awards will have a 2 year transition period (through June 30, 2020) to complete. All new members joining D-65 after the announcement of the roll-out date will automatically go into Pathways educational program.

Pathways is finally coming to District 65 and I hope everyone is excited to receive and embrace it.

Paving Road To DTM

Paving the Road to Distinguished Toastmaster (DTM)

By Dan Ferens, DTM

Dan Ferens
With Pathways coming early next year, Toastmasters will only have 24 months after that to get a DTM under the current educational program. Since DTM is the only rank that carries over into the Pathways program, quite a few of you in District 65 have shown interest in getting it. We are doing several things to help.

First of all, there is a group that meets once a month on Zoom to discuss various activities and to address any questions anyone has. The next meeting is Sunday, October 15, 7:00-8:30 PM, and will feature a presentation on “planning a DTM using a personal DTM mentor”. There will also be a Zoom meeting on November 19. If you want to join the group, please send an e-mail to Dan Ferens, the group leader, at DTMDanF@yahoo.com. Dan will also answer any questions you have via personal e-mail.

Second, there are resources available. The District 65 web site has a tab “Path to DTM” which will include useful information, including a paper titled “Paving the Road to DTM” that addresses some questions Toastmasters often have. Also, there is a 29-page ”Road to DTM” document available on the Select Toastmasters club web site; the link is http://selecttoastmasters.toastmastersclubs.org/. There is also an appendix on selecting advanced communication manuals.

If you are working on your DTM, take advantage of what is available. Of course, many members of our District are always willing to help.

We’d like to invite and challenge you, our advanced toastmasters to take that extra step to earn your DTM before the change. Then you can earn another with the Pathways Program moving forward.
