SATURDAY-SUNDAY PROGRAMS -- TWO tracks to choose from:

TRACK A -- Instructor Development

SMART INSTRUCTORS + SMART TECHNOLOGY = SMARTER STUDENTS
Mr. Shea Chwialkowski
Firefighter/EMT
Richfield Fire Department, Richfield, MN
Do you want to expand your toolbox of instructional techniques? Do you want the information you are conveying to be retained? Do you want your message to be engaging, interactive, and cool? Do you want your delivery to pop and sizzle with energy? I know you do, and so does your audience. Instructors have grown complacent. This presentation explores refreshing instructional tools that grab your students’ attention and keep them engaged. Mobile apps, virtual reality, simulations, software, and more will take you beyond the traditional lecture and slideshow methodology. The highlighted resources synchronize with how today’s students interact with information, increasing their retention and enthusiasm for learning. You will leave with an arsenal of ready-to-use, low-cost options for maximizing your training efficacy in today’s digital information age. 

DEVELOPING FIRE SERVICE LESSON PLANS

Chief Tom Schmitz
Edina (MN) Fire Dept.

Developing Lesson Plans is a critical element to any successful training. This session will teach the fire service instructor the necessary building blocks to prepare and deliver a successful training session.

FLIPPING THE CLASSROOM
Scott Tillotson, CCEMT-P
EMS Instructor
Chippewa Valley Technical College
Do you ever find yourself wondering if your students know what you want them to know? Have you asked a question to only hear crickets? This session will provide participants with simple strategies to increase the Instructor’s awareness of student knowledge retention and increase engagement through the flipped classroom method. These strategies will be applicable and simple enough to use the next day!
WELCOME TO MY CLASSROOM
Red Van Ert, MS, MPA, AEMT
Chippewa Valley Technical College
Fire Science Training Coordinator
Deputy Chief of Training, Altoona Fire Department
We are always looking for new ways to teach the same things. We need to change the dynamics and pace of the classroom to better engage the students that are entrusted to us. I will walk you through two hours of a classroom environment that I use and hopefully give you new ideas to change your format, enhance your format and continue to inspire learning. With things that you learn from the prior three classes I will mock a two hour block of instruction to help you understand different methods and flow patterns that you may use. I promise you will not be sitting for the entire two hours of my class.
