PATHWAYS Learning Experience


In an effort to offer members improved opportunities to learn and to grow, Toastmasters is rolling out a new education program and learning management system. Updates are being released in the TOASTMASTER magazine and are posted at the Toastmasters International website.

The Toastmasters International development team is focused on establishing an improved foundation to the education program and enhancing the fundamental member experience and relevant learning.

Reach Your Potential The Member Experience is still the center of our learning system. The Pathways Learning Experience is a journey with paths, possibilities and personal potential.

Getting Started:

Each member will complete a needs assessment to assist in choosing what path best meets the desired goals for their own personal learning experience.

Base Camp:

Your online Home Base for the program. At Base Camp you will find:

► Projects, Resources, Transcripts, Tips, Tools, and Your Assessment.

► This site is also where the club Base Camp Managers (Club President, Vice President Education and Club Secretary) will track and approve each member’s progress.

Pathways Learning Experience Training:

Training will be delivered through E-learning modules. District leaders will receive training at 2017 mid year training events. Local district training will be delivered by Pathways Guides (a new role) beginning 60 days in advanced of the district rollout.

A list of frequently asked questions is posted on the Toastmasters International website

The Toastmasters Pathways learning experience represents a paradigm shift in how members can interact with the education program because they will have a choice. The educational materials that support the program will be available both in print and online; however, the online experience will be richer with the availability of video, tutorials, interactivity and online tracking.

Pathways Learning Experience Program Materials: The Board reviewed the costs for the new program and approved a pricing strategy that will launch in parallel with the rollout of Pathways:

  • New members pay a one-time $20.00 fee that includes:
    • First path
    • Online copy of The Navigator (a how-to-start guide that replaces the new member kit)
  • New members who wish to receive a printed copy of The Navigator will be responsible for shipping costs.
  • Members who choose to purchase a printed copy of their path will be charged a $25.00 fee (all materials are DOWNLOADABLE FROM BASE CAMP FREE OF CHARGE)
  • The cost for each new path is $20.00
  • Current members will receive their first path at no cost

The images below show the Pathways Rollout Schedule, Path Names, and the Path to DTM, as well as the Current DCP education goals, Transition DCP education goals and the Pathways education goals.
