Circuit Rider Training & Standards Session Slides

Presented by Ian Runeckles (Lasa) & Marc Osten (Summit Collaborative)
In this session participants will receive an update on the newly published Circuit Rider

Then the participants will engage in a discussion related to standards and benchmarks that are being developed to help Circuit Riders focus their ongoing skills
development. Examples of standards and benchmarks will be shared to stimulate the
discussion. We’ll also look at “learning accountability” scenarios – how will Riders
evidence their learning?
