Feb 28, 2013

One-Hour Webinars Scheduled in 2013

CentreLearn Solutions, the leading provider of online training for fire and emergency medical services, is offering an all-new series of free continuing education webinars for medical first responder, EMT, paramedic, and firefighter educators on educational methodology topics in 2013. Registration is now open for each CE webinar.

June 4 - Student Centered Education in the Digital Age: New Paradigms in Education for New Tools in the Classroom

This program explores not just toys, tips and tricks, but methods to fundamentally transform the “user experience” by emphasizing dynamic application of knowledge through student-centered education methods and activities.

September 19 - Incorporating Critical Thinking Into Education: Teaching Not Just “How,” But “Why” 
Register here.
Critical thinking is vital not only for effective delivery of emergency services, but as a lifelong learning skill necessary for students to excel as fire, rescue and EMS responders. This webinar is for educators and training officers who want to better incorporate critical thinking skills into initial and recertification courses, competency testing processes, and continuing education programs.

December 12 - Powerful Presentations: Delivering Effective Communications, Comprehension and Calls to Action 
Register here
This program isn't about PowerPoint tips and tricks (although some are included). Rather, it demonstrates effective communications and message delivery techniques, tools for successful student / attendee engagement, and presentation of a compelling "call to action" designed to motivate attendees to effect positive change.

“Many educators need to earn CECBEMS-accredited CE to maintain their educator credentials. These webinars will focus on educational methodology and be of interest to aspiring, new, and experienced educators,” said Greg Friese, CentreLearn’s director of education.

Seminars will feature instructor Rom Duckworth. With more than 20 years of experience as a career and volunteer fire officer, paramedic and hospital-based healthcare educator, Duckworth is a regular contributor to research programs, conferences, magazines, and textbooks on topics of field operations, leadership, education and career development in emergency services.
