FDI Description: Phase I, a hybrid training program,is equivalent to a three- day workshop addressing fundamental expectations, attitudes, behaviors, and procedures necessary to function successfully in the classroom. Topics include student learning outcomes, development and syllabi and lessons plans, standards in the curriculum, adult learning styles, academic advisement, professionalism in the classroom, and more. Since the class meets for just one full day or two half days, participants MUST complete activities PRIOR to attending the training. The online activities will be emailed to registered participants a couple of weeks prior to the training.
FDI Objectives:

FDI Presentation Methods: Lecture, group discussion, individual and team work, videos (with discussion following videos). In addition, the online portion of the training uses SoftChalk and was recorded using “ispring” software. Participants must complete and submit all of the activities; the instructor can see the activities submitted using the SoftChalk gradebook.


Note: Participants are required to attend the entire in-person session AND complete all online activities PRIOR to the in-person session to receive credit for the training. If you cannot be present for the entire in-session training and complete ALL online activities PRIOR to the training, please select another session. Extenuating circumstances will be evaluated on an individual basis at the discretion of the instructor. Also, it is suggested that participants have at least 5 months between Phase I and Phase II training sessions. However, if Phase II training is coming to your campus or close by a few months after completing Phase I, you may schedule the Phase II training.
