Framing Age Masterclasses

Course Overview

The masterclasses are designed to build participant skills and confidence in applying the values-based messaging approach detailed in the Framing Age Message Guide.  These interactive and engaging workshops will help you learn how to use the tips and principles in your setting and gain confidence in developing messages about age and ageing that are positive and reduce ageist beliefs.

They are facilitated by Mark Chenery, Director of Common Cause Australia, who researched and developed the content for the Guide.


What to Expect

  • A masterclass includes two sessions, held two weeks apart on Zoom.
  • Each session is three hours long. This makes the face-to-face time via Zoom six hours.
  • There is one hour of homework between sessions one and two, which is completed with your group members. This makes the total time commitment seven hours.
  • The sessions are free and run at no cost to participants.
  • Common Cause Masterclasses are highly regarded and are limited to 15 participants to enhance the learning experience.
