"The means is dialogue, the end is learning, the purpose is peace." ~ Founder Dr. Jane Vella
Peter Tate is completing his time as a training designer for Hope Consultants, a UK based international development organisation, where he has been creating DE type training from existing video monologue content, and then preparing it for digital format. He also recently completed Diploma stage in his studies in Digital Education with Edinburgh University, learning how to implement a DE approach in online environments.
Previously Peter worked as UK co-ordinator of Learning that LASTS, a training-the-trainers workshop developed by Wycliffe Bible Translators and endorsed by Jane Vella. Peter went on to implement Planning that LASTS to help participants go on to convert their existing teaching content into DE format. He also developed a weekend version of Learning that LASTS for churches. His role at Wycliffe also involved producing and providing software and orientation training in DE format. Peter led this programme in the UK for 9 years, and also taught these courses in the US and Africa in that time.
Peter loves training, either designing it or helping others learn to do so or simply training them to teach more effectively. He has extensive experience in church and faith based contexts both in the UK and internationally. His recent studies and his current role have helped him build skills to also put training into digital formats.
Before that Peter worked in Ghana with Wycliffe, helping to develop alphabets for unwritten languages and prior to that, worked in the software industry in Northern Ireland, where he is originally from.
