    An effective presentation ends with a thorough summary and a memorable conclusion. These are the last opportunities you will have to get your points across. They should be powerful and lasting in the memories of attendees. The work involved in developing and delivering an effective presentation doesn't end when the presentation is over. Audience evaluations are critical in providing feedback to presenters about all aspects of the presentation. The development of an evaluation form that will provide presenters with important information is key. Follow up with audience members who are looking for additional information, or who may have specific questions, is another critical aspect of an effective presentation.
    For many people, fear of public speaking is difficult to overcome. This module series starts out with a unit on ways to be a relaxed and controlled presenter.

Once you have the attention of the audience, however, it's important to keep that attention and focus. This can be done by carefully managing the presentation as it's moving along.

    Here we are 12 years into the new millennium but we are still talking about the 21st Century and the changes that need to be made, so why is that? Change takes time and adopting new pedagogy and daily practices takes a new level of comfort that isn't present for many of us. So how do we get there? In this module, participants will examine their current stage of development in the transformation to 21st Century classroom and their own change process while gathering ideas for implementing new technology strategies into current pedagogy. This module, which is geared toward novice technology users, will include activities to help participants find new tools to bring engaging multimedia lessons to their students that met them were they are, as well as help build a personal learning network to provide support and inspiration for moving forward.

    The role of a clinical supervisor is unique and exciting; though at times can become a daunting task.

Participants will engage in interactive case examples and role plays that will assist in learning and skill integration.
    Participants will explore best practices in literacy in order to best meet the needs of students that may not be making expected growth in the classroom. Participants will learn how to analyze reading behaviors and target instruction that will boost academic performance of low achieving students.

    This series of modules provides an in-depth overview of training and development.

    Program evaluation is complex, and serves many purposes. Evaluations are used to communicate the value and the effectiveness of the program. They are used to find and address areas in which improvement is needed, and to note areas of success. As part of continuous improvement efforts, they should be designed to give the programmer feedback on all aspects of the program. An effective evaluation summary can help the programmer, the organization, and the learner, in many ways. For those associated with the training program development and implementation processes, the job doesn't end with the completion of the program itself. Evaluation is a critical component of all successful training programs. An evaluation strategy that relates to the program objectives should be developed and implemented as part of the overall training program development process.

    Program Implementation picks up after the development stage has been completed. objectives have been written, transfer of learning strategies have been completed, program formats and instructors have been determined, and marketing and budget plans have been set. Program Implementation starts out with the instructional design phase. What types of activities will be included in your training program, and how will each activity help to meet program objectives? Details about facilities and the coordination of onsite events on the day of the program are also included in this unit. This module also includes units on giving presentations, facilitation discussions, and conducting effective training sessions. A major part of any training program is the conclusion, where the facilitator wraps everything up, highlights key points, ensures that goals have been met, and plans for next steps in the program process. This module covers program conclusions and closings as well.

    Reading in the content areas is extremely important. In this module, we will work on developing the essential knowledge and skills needed to facilitate vocabulary teaching and learning in content areas (math, science, social studies, physical education and health). The module will help participants learn strategies to help students in K-12 grades succeed in vocabulary learning and develop the ability to design and implement appropriate content area vocabulary instruction. Participants will be asked to create content area related vocabulary lesson plans that they can use in their classrooms.
