Accelerating Performance In Your Education Programs: Prepping Students for Real World Work.
Description: What can you do to “up your game” as an emergency service educator and ensure that your student come out both prepared for the test and ready for the street? Why is it so difficult for good teachers to connect with some students? The key is applying new twists on tried and true education methods. Attendees will learn the origins and current applications of adult education theory as well as how to set and use “on the fly objectives”. Most importantly, this program presents instructors with the techniques to troubleshoot training program issues and keys to motivating students who don’t seem to otherwise re-spond to your best efforts.
