Date:
May 13, 2021
Start Time:
9:30 am
End Time:
11:30 am
Location:
Online
Designed for ECE trainers and/or instructors teaching CDA or ECE college courses, this interactive session will explore brain-based instructional strategies that help participants remember what you taught them. New insights into how memories are encoded and retrieved dictate the use of new and modified instructional strategies that lead to better retention and more complex mastery. During this session, participants will: 1) learn about and experience instructional strategies that support 3 key memory processes (attention, elaboration, retrieval); 2) discuss how commonly used training strategies can lead to an illusion of mastery; 3) describe the importance of effortful retrieval, spaced learning and feedback as well as ways to incorporate these strategies into trainings/courses; and 4) brainstorm ways they can incorporate new strategies into their own trainings/courses. This session includes a 2-hour webinar, pre-assignment, and post assignment. In order to receive credit, you must attend the webinar and complete all assignments.

Trainers Institute: At Home Edition- Now What? A Conversation on Bias and Impact

Date:

Start Time:

Location:

The definition of implicit bias is as follows:The unconscious attitudes, stereotypes, and unintentional actions (positive or negative) towards members of a group merely because of their membership in that group. These associations develop over the course of a lifetime beginning at a very early age through exposure to direct and indirect messages. When people are acting out of their implicit bias, they are not even aware that their actions are biased. In fact, those biases may be in direct conflict with a person’s explicit beliefs and values. That’s what makes it so challenging to see the difference between what you believe and your behavior.This engaging conversation will review implicit bias, discuss how to become more aware of your own bias, how your bias can impact the work you do and real and tangible ways to be aware of your bias and remove them. It’s not always an easy conversation, but it is necessary to move forward.

Project ECHOTM is an inter-professional practice network where education and/or health care professionals learn together. Short, informative presentations and case discussions conducted during recurring video conferences allow participants to support the individuals they serve by learning new strategies, implementing real-time solutions, improving systems, and removing barriers. Knowledge sharing "All Teach, All Learn" represents the heart of the ECHO model. Case-based learning and mentor-ship supports local professionals and communities to gain the expertise in an efficient manner. Participants gain knowledge, skills, and confidence for implementing new approaches and using their knowledge and skills across diverse cultural and geographical contexts. "All Teach, All Learn" means that ALL participants are welcomed to join the conversation, ask questions, share knowledge and experiences, and offer suggestions during each session. This spring series explores alternate forms of communication for students/clients who do not use oral speech effectively. Specifically, discussions include the range of systems that makeup what is referred to as augmentative and alternative communication (AAC). Although AAC ranges from low-tech picture boards to high-tech electronic devices, they are all composed of four critical features: a method of access, a form of representation, a display, and some type of output. The purpose of this ECHO series is to identify access factors and the ways in which these access factors influence the decisions regarding AAC selection. HOW DOES IT WORK? Join an online videoconference bi-weekly with our team of experts including Speech Language Pathologists, General Educators, Low Incidence Educators, Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, Vision Experts, and AudiologistsWatch a brief, informative presentation by one of the experts – (15-20 minutes)Hear a case presentation by a participating educator or related service provider (15-20 minutes)Participate in the discussion and problem-solving process as a community of learners (20-30 minutes) CASE STUDIES: During each session, a case study will be presented by an educator, therapist, or other service provider who would like assistance problem solving the use of AAC in communication. The case study will include the communication issue the case manager is facing, as well as a general, non-identifying description of the student and the factors impacting their communication. During the case study, participants may ask clarifying questions about the issue prior to the problem-solving process. If you would be interested in presenting a case during an ECHO session, contact us at taalc@uky.edu. WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS? Collaboration, support, and ongoing learning with experts to increase communication Generation of new ideas
