June 30th 2011 Deadline

The CB-A Project,

had it’s ultimate moment for me on Thursday the 30th June 2011, a day far at the end of the project some nine months ago.  Those nine months have flicked past like drawings on a writing pad flick into animation, slowly at first then gradually speeding up till you seem to be carried along almost unwillingly at times.

Warning Signs

This will happen

The current that is generated from the CB-A discoveries along the way reminds me of a rip in the ocean, you swim unconcerned and strongly until all at once the current has you and are giving it all you have.  The calm of the beach seems far away and  your great relief you are on the beach the current gone and a feeling of calm finally comes over you.

Sounds like a terrible process but it is not!  The amount of discovery, networking, thinking and collaboration achieved in the nine months has surprised and excited me.  The participants both past and present, the CB-A team and all concerned possess an enormous amount of Guild Knowledge, experience and expertise in assessment, training and communicating.

Registrations are open for the next CB-A Projects, my advice be in it, you will never look back.  tafeSA Moodle Below is feedback I left on the CB-A Moodle Pages, click the link to go there and have a look. 

Join the LinkedIn CB-A Group to meet others involved or interested 

Hi All.  Feedback better late than never.  Well better immediately than late too.It went well on the day (30th June 2011), I knew it would.. Hoped it would anyway.  Good to see so many people there and interested, they should get participants for next years BC-A event.

The guy from Correctional Services in WA, stood out for me, he came up to me and said he had come for confirmation that he was not on his own and had gone away feeling very positive about the principles and A4L.That’s one eager follower, just need to keep up the awareness of the great potential we discovered during the project.  It has been an eye openning journey that will not end soon for us and as many others as we can mentor and pass on what we have learned by doing.

I has and will as Michael White told me, change the way I look at assessment forever, thanks to Michael for that everyone..rob
