BO #1 - Coaching EMS Students
IC Credits - 1 Instructional Techniques, .5 Educational Administration

This presentation covers the need to engage the current EMS students inside and outside of the classroom.  I make the argument that to be successful, the instructor has to be as much of a coach as they do an instructor. We will discuss the millennials and how we, as instructors, can get through to them.  We will be discussing the use of the internet to keep students engaged in the curriculum. We will talk about coaching for success and go through some information that will help instructors coach students on how to study and how to take tests.

BO #4 - Suicide within EMS: Separating fact from fiction
IC Credits - 1.5 Instructional Techniques
MFR/EMT/AEMT/Paramedic Credits - 1.5 Prepatory

Suicide within the EMS profession has gained greater attention in recent years as part of the focus on whole health among medics.  Because of the increased attention and limited research specific to the field of EMS, the opportunity exists for misnomers and ineffective prevention methods to propagate. Using a public health model with proven efficacy and applying it to the EMS profession can potentially reduce suicide risk by debunking myths and reinforcing evidence-based information.

BO #5 - Why does everyone fall asleep in my class?
Repeated on Saturday

IC Credits - 1.5 Instructional Techniques

Instructors spend copious hours preparing for lessons and instruction to their students.  Many instructors are extremely knowledgeable in Pre-hospital care but lack basic rudimentary educational principals to effectively transfer information to the students in the classroom setting, in a manner that allows the material to be stored in the long-term memory.  Long gone are the days when we can assume that just because a person is a great medic, they will be a great teacher. Cramming more, in a shorter time effectively guarantees that the information will be forgotten.  Incorporating movement into the lesson plan exponentially increases the likelihood that lesson will be remembered and if we include music, we up those odds even more.  Finally, emotions are also crucial for learning. Without a healthy/safe emotional outlook, students will not thrive or succeed.

A student's learning style is not just a preference. The concept of Universal Design for Learning points to brain-based research which shows that how we learn is determined by our unique brain make-up.  We'll take those principles and show that there are simple techniques instructors can use to help prepare our students for success, both in the classroom and beyond.
