Failing to Teach or Teaching to Fail?

Friday, April 28
This class discusses common instructional detractors that reduce the effectiveness or value or diminishes the importance of the message the instructor is tasked with imparting to the participants. It covers issues in the classroom including the use of media and how to avoid or minimize those detractors, distractions, and disasters waiting to happen. Often such detractors are counter to the content of that class or other programs such as drill ground/scene safety. These unintended consequences include inadvertently diminishing the importance of nonfire response topics such as EMS, fire prevention or public education, drill ground, and especially high-risk training such as live fire training.
