The Advanced Practicum extends VTS practice with further coaching and exercises focused on improving paraphrasing and linking. Additional attention is paid to image selection to address the needs and interests of various groups as understood by way of Abigail Housen’s stages. Participants will be able to conduct VTS discussions with a variety of audiences with confidence.


1. You MUST have participated in a VTS Practicum or an introductory VTS Workshop within the past five years. If you attended a Beginner Practicum or other training more than five years ago, we require you to submit a 5-7 minute video of yourself leading a VTS discussion.
