  Annoying Notifications & Unsubscribing
Posted by: 0rest0har - 08-08-2017, 05:34 PM - Forum: Available Instructor Tools - No Replies

Students entering the NH Classroom Discussion Forums may find themselves automatically subscribed to the discussions in which they participate.  The default is notifications to your email address.  If these become annoying, then find the UNSUBSCRIBE TO THIS THREAD link at the bottom of the thread involved.

No Notifications is my preferred choice.

[Image: AnnoyingNotifications.png]

I Choose no notifications because my participation in teaching courses here is supposed to be accomplished in mt spare time.  I like the ASYMMETRICAL nature of group based discussions.  There is no actual time that I am required to make my comments to the students.  I can arrive at 3 AM if that is the only available time in my day, and still be able to catch up on answering questions, or helping a student cut content out of a lesson to tighten up the focus and message.

ASYMMETRICAL means that everyone who participate comes in to participate as they can, as time becomes available.  As long as we all make our due dates with assignments, get our questions answered, and participate in the discussions to show the instructors that their assignments are on track (referred to as "checking for understanding") then visiting when you can accomplishes the mission of passing this course...

Students who completed the NSP Hybridized Instructor Development video based course using the textbook are required to participate in a Lesson Planning Classroom Exercise guided by the staff Instructor assigned to the course.

Login and introduce yourself to the class.  Give your ski area, how long you have been patrolling, tell us if you are a teacher in you full time vocation, and tell us what NSP discipline you plan to enter for instructor mentoring.

  1. Once a topic is chosen, it is up to the student to post their first draft.
  2. Your assigned ID Instructor will begin a discussion to help improve your lesson.  The goal is to PARE IT DOWN to fit the time-frame and improve you delivery of the primary learning objective.
  3. It is the student's job to join the discussion and help polish their own lesson drafts into a final product.
  4. Along the way, you are encouraged to join in an help your fellow classmates with ideas as they participate in their own lesson plans. Everyone benefits from watching each others process evolve.  Our goal is to help create an experience through collaboration where new instructors learn how to create and deliver memorable, skill-building objective based lessons that your students will find fun and engaging!

In summary, the primary rule is PARTICIPATE in the DISCUSSION with your classmates!

  Are you looking for an NSP Instructor Development Course?
Posted by: 0rest0har - 02-24-2017, 04:12 PM - Forum: Available Instructor Tools - No Replies

New Hampshire Region has invested in building a responsive ID Staff that is dedicated to any students who REGISTER fot our ID couses.  If you register during the winter season, we guarantee you that we will help you complete your course as quickly as you might be motivated to do so.  We will travel to you ski resort to complete the final Face-to-Face teaching session. 

During the off-season, NH Region pools registered students into small groups with the face to face meetings.  We schedule these classroom gatherings during strategic times, often scheduling one in early September so that new Instructor candidates beginning a typical OEC Mentoring process can be ready to help during the typical Autumn OEC course time frame.

To become a Ski Patrol INSTRUCTOR, please follow this link to the REGISTRATION page and fill out the form:

http://newhampshireregionnsp.org/topshack/?page_id=1892

After registration, you will receive a automated receipt guiding you to downloading the textbook and entering the NSP Learning Management System (NSP LMS).  The LMS is the same place patrollers go to do their annual Hybridized OEC Refresher.  In the LMS, you will find an 11 Chapter Hybridized Instructor Development course complete with video lectures and quizzes.

In the meantime, NH Region will assign an Instructor to contact you and guide you through the Online Learning process.  Together you will get through four separate steps that will put you on the path to becoming an NSP Instructor:

  1. Hybridized video presentation of the textbook with quizzes
  2. 6-Pack Lesson Planning practical session using NH Region's distance learning facility
  3. Gather for a Face-to-Face teaching session to deliver your lesson
  4. Receive your Mentoring Guide and learn about the NH Region Instructor support network, managed by the ID Staff.
These are the steps that lead you into the NSP Educational discipline of your choice to begin the mentoring process...

Follow the link above and REGISTER for an ID Course.  If you have questions, follow this link to email the email the Supervisor...
