Plan Now for an Academically Uplifting 2014

Educator Empowerment Series (EES) Classes Begin Again in 2014
Join the VRSII and Dr. Len Roberson for the first EES class of 2014, “Engaging to Learn: Interpreter Education through Dynamic Learning,” scheduled Jan. 17 – 19. The course fee is $50 and 1.5 CEUs will be awarded.

This course will actively present proven tools to engage learners based on findings related to brain-based and active learning as well as demonstrate tools and strategies for successful application in interpreter education. Participants will learn how to help students to be more engaged and successful in the learning process.

Participants will practice many of the tools presented and work through an action plan for integrating strategies and information into their own training. Participants will be able to identify key elements of active, engaged learning, explain various tools of engagement and connect the strategies for engagement to specific ideas for their own training efforts.
