On Tuesday, 20th March, members will receive an email from Toastmasters International (TI) with a link to access PATHWAYS, TI’s new education system.
If you can’t wait to get started and want access to Basecamp, you will need to select a Path. (The exception is the Basecamp Manager who will have access before choosing their Path).
How To Get Started
Either follow the link in TI’s email or login to www.toastmasters.org, go to ‘Pathways’ then ‘Access my path through basecamp’.
Click on ‘Continue to path selection’ . You can opt for online or print delivery. If you opt for online delivery, you must complete the assessment before choosing your first Path (no need to complete the assessment for subsequent Paths unless you want to). Please note: Members who opt for print materials do not take the assessment and are instead taken to a web page where they can select from five Paths).
The assessment consists of 30 questions and takes about 5-10 minutes to complete. Make sure you have a designated time for this because if you are interrupted in the middle of it you will be timed out after 30 minutes and have to start again. The assessment results are not stored.
When you complete the assessment, you will have suggestions for 3 Paths (closest match and 2 other top matches) based on your “needs, interests and current goals” (TI). But, you don’t have to choose one of those if you don’t want to, you can explore the other 7 Paths before making a final decision.
Access To Basecamp
Now that you have chosen your path, you will have access to Basecamp. If you have any questions, please contact your Vice President Education (VPE).
