Course -- Prevention and Correction: Overview

"Prevention and Correction: Overviewā€¯ course emphasizes the environmental, educational and social demands that influence an educator's daily decisions.  Many of these decisions conflict with personal, organizational, technological, and social factors.  Poor decisions -- no matter how well intentioned -- may result in adverse consequences that not only impacted the educator, but also the schools, students and the community.

The  Prevention and Correction: Overview course provides an option for licensing agencies and school districts to support those educators whose conflicting decisions have resulted in a need for intervention.

Integrated into this course is an emphasis on ethics as informed by the NASDTEC Model Code of Ethics for Educators

The course is designed by a team of national leaders in the area of educator ethics. The expert content team for "Prevention and Correction: Overview" includes Troy Hutchings, Ed.D., a key thought leader in the field of educator ethics; Glenn Lipson, Ph.D., a forensic psychologist who evaluates and testifies in the civil matters and specializes in building supportive programs for educators; and, Fred Lane, J.D., an author, public speaker, forensic investigator, and former school board member, who specializes in illuminating the new challenges posed for professional educators in a rapidly evolving digitally-connected society.

The minimum time it takes to complete the course is approximately 4.5 hours.  A series of assessments checks for knowledge and understanding before permitting advancement to the next module.  A final certificate is provided as documentation of completion and further documentation can be confirmed through NASDTEC.
