Instructor Professional Development: Unpacking the EMS Education Standards-Virtual

Virtual (no location)

Lesson Goal At the end of this 2-hour professional development seminar, EMS instructors will be able to use the breadth and depth terminology to determine what needs to be taught in their curriculum, and how to allocate time and resources within a course, in order to adapt to the changing level of rigor and expectation of EMS students. Objectives Evaluate the relationship between breadth of knowledge and depth of knowledge, given definitions of each, such that the level of student performance is determined. Articulate the importance of targeting depth and breadth in lesson planning, given information about the changes in national certification testing, such that a valuing of planning processes is demonstrated. Locations: All in-person sessions will be held at the Richard M. Flynn Fire Academy, 98 Smokey Bear Blvd, Concord, NH 03301.
