Lectures 

Creating Adaptable Snowsports Instructors

Monday 18 March, Perlik Room 2, 16:00 – 16:40 and 16:50 – 17:30

Delivered by James Bennett, Jas Bruce, Lynn Mill, Mark Jones, Rupert Goldring, Rupert Tildesley and Tom Waddington

This lecture will demonstrate how BASI creates adaptable snowsports instructors. The lecture will explain the TIED teaching model and how BASI candidates use this model when teaching. BASI aim to develop instructors who are able to retain snowsport enthusiasts and encourage others to the sport. The lecture will show how BASI believes instructors can achieve this by having an adaptable teaching approach.

This is linked to the Creating Adaptable Snowsports Instructors on-snow workshop. However, you can attend this lecture without attending the on-snow workshop.

Reviewng skills – Teaching teachers to teach

Monday 18 March, Perlik Room 6, 16:50 – 17:30

Delivered by Amanda Pirie, Ben Arkley, Dave Morris, Kevin Edwards, Giles Lewis and Lesley Page

This lecture will explore an important aspect of being a ‘good’ snowsport instructor: the ability to review your own, and others, instruction practice.  The lecture will explain how and why BASI candidates review their peers teaching episodes. BASI believe that ‘reviewing’ is a key process to deepening understanding of teaching and learning. The skills that are required to effectively review a teaching session are skills that are highly desirable in any instructor of snowsports. The lecture will explain how BASI encourages these skills within the system and why BASI believe they are important for any instructor of snowsports.

This is linked to the Reviewing skills – Teaching teachers to teach on-snow workshop. However, you can attend this lecture without attending the on-snow workshop.

Are Participants to Experience Adaptive or should we be Alpine Educators?

Monday 18 March, 16:50-17:30, Perlik Room 7

Delivered by Marcus Upton and Geoff Krill

The joint lecture from BASI and PSIA will show the correlation between the Alpine Fundamental Elements and Adaptive snowsport teaching, the adaptive equipment used and seen on the mountains.

This lecture will focus on the teaching of existing alpine instructors that adaptive snowsports is no different to what already exists via their Alpine Manuals.

Our systems are all skills based and not set out entirely for snowsport experiences. We as educators set out to teach clients through skills, which does not result in adaptive skiing being a specific way.
In this lecture, we will explore a variety of skills we can use to ski in different styles and discuss the importance of adaptability via existing Alpine Fundamental Elements.
