Please note: This course replaces Course #2002 - Instructor Development II - Student Centered Learning
The new ID-II is a hybrid course consisting of 24 hours of distance learning/independent work over six weeks, followed by two days in the classroom. The pre-classroom work will entail spending 24 hours reading, studying, researching, and completing five assignments while still at your work-place. The participants will then meet at the locations noted for the two-day classroom portion.
Approximately seven weeks before the classroom portion, you’ll receive your independent work assignments and instructions on how to complete this portion of the class. The independent work should take about four hours per week and includes frequent interaction with your instructors via e-mail. If you are taking this course on your department’s time, it is imperative your agency commits to allowing you the time to complete the pre-classroom assignments each week.
This course is designed for experienced instructors to expand upon their knowledge and skills. Students will be immersed in student-centered facilitation. This is NOT a basic skills class; presentation skills and experience in lesson planning and facilitating are necessary preconditions to succeed in this class.
The course focuses on how people learn (research from the field of educational psychology) to promote better practices in criminal justice training. How can you keep your students engaged and thinking at a higher level, to use problem solving? What makes adult learning effective? This material will assist experienced trainers in further developing their facilitation and lesson development skills, expanding upon their knowledge as an instructor, facilitator and trainer.
