Training Scenarios The following scenarios provide a sample of training options. All training experiences are complemented by tested training tools, handouts and other resource materials. The following training options can be provided in 1-2 days.
• Community-responsive curriculum development. How can your curriculum be more student and community-responsive? This training would address the “process” and implications for designing a curriculum that meets both the institutions objectives for academic learning, the student’s learning and professional growth objectives, and the “service” objectives of community clinician and agency partners.
Trainers can assist the faculty and their team members in designing an action plan in follow-up to the training.
• Faculty development and leadership. How can faculty leadership in community-based education be fostered? What are the faculty competencies for working in community-based settings? Trainers can assist faculty in discovering their leadership abilities and develop strategies for effectively “channeling” these abilities in community settings.
• Community leaders involved in community-campus partnerships.
Would you like to learn more about working in partnership with a health professions school in your area? This training provides community clinicians and agency staff with the skills and competencies to effectively build partnerships with campus faculty and staff, and to “navigate” through the academic system. In addition, participants learn important strategies for developing a partnership agreement with other stakeholders and the “nuts and bolts” of working with students in community-based settings.
• Student leadership and development. How can we foster student leadership skills and abilities? This training is modeled from tested student leadership institutes held by CCPH. Student learners engage in interactive hands-on sessions focused on developing their leadership skills in the area of communication, community organizing and advocacy, partnership building, and working with the media.
Students work with trainers to design an action plan for implementation following the training.
• Service-learning in the health professions. This training focuses on service-learning as an effective educational methodology for improving student education and community health. Trainers work with faculty and program staff to understand the theory of service-learning, effective “reflection” strategies for classroom and community-based settings, partnership building strategies, service-learning assessment, and service-learning curriculum design.
Members of the Mentor Network can design a training or consultation that reflects your desires, and builds upon your knowledge and skill base. Prior to any training or consultation, members of the Mentor Network will work with you to assess your most pressing issues based on your completion of the Network Skills and Needs Inventory Tool. Your completion of the inventory tool will also reveal the learning method(s) desired by your and/or your organization.
