Including the AUCD Trainee Orientation Modules in your Curriculum

Including the AUCD Trainee Orientation Modules in your Curriculum

Monday, August 26, 2019
2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. ET
Location: Webinar

Webinar Description:

As the new academic year begins, many programs/centers are beginning to think about how to orient their trainees to the AUCD network. Developed in 2017, the AUCD Trainee Orientation Modules provide information about the structure and purpose of AUCD, how trainees "fit" in the network, connecting with experts from across the country, getting involved by contributing their experiences, and growing as leaders.


The Modules are designed to be flexible, so that any program/center can embed them in their training curriculum wherever and whenever appropriate. During this webinar, presenters from LENDs and UCEDDs will share their experiences of using this resource as part of their existing orientation process for trainees.

Presenters

During the webinar, Gail Chodron (WI) and Jerry Alliston (MS) will describe how they have embedded the Trainee Orientation Modules in their orientation and/or curriculum. In addition, they will elaborate on the benefits of including the modules, impact on trainees, and how to include the evaluation component.

Evaluation:

In 2017, a cadre of programs/centers participated in a pre- and post-test to determine if the Modules were effective in helping Trainees learn about and connect with the AUCD Network.
