Im not sure it would. one of my collagues around here has been talking about holding the first two class sessions as a 'welcome to adult learning' presentation. pretty much a "you're not in high school and they way they tried to get you to learn there isnt going to cut it now" lecture. teaching them how to learn.

I'm thinking about creating content on my page based off his presentation. if you have a way to teach adults how to learn, then i would NOT withhold it from them. they deserve that content in the classroom. many of them get frustrated because they don't know how to approach this material. I'm going to start a discussion  (above) on this topic in particular right now.

Im game too. The biggest issue I run into is studying. I get students of all ages and half of them, regardless of age, have no idea how to study. Ive considered teaching the first day on study habits, but I kind of feel that it would fall on deaf ears.

Cool - lets get after it! what should we discuss here? use of media in the classroom? simulation? affective domain? flipped classrooms? im game for whatever develops us as professional educators!

Hey Dave,

Thanx for the info.  I'm going to look into the NAEMSE classes and see if they are recognized where I live.

Hi Joe,  I'm not sure what the State of New York or your county require, but the NAEMSE Instructor courses both level one & level two are great courses.  I don't know if your state will recognize them for instructor credentialing.  You may need to do the DOT class, or some state specific course.  Check your state regulations, or talk to your state EMS Office.

I have been an EMT for 16 years and due to a back injury I can not work the street any more but I still want to be involved in EMS.  I live in the Albany NY area and I am interested in taking classes to become an instructor.  Does anyone know where I can take classes?
