The primary mission of Educational Initiatives is to ensure that the educational offerings (conferences, webinars, and institutes) of the Association align with the Association's strategic priorities. This year, the committee is focused on the Core Competencies with the intent of bringing new formats of education to the membership focused directly within the competencies at different levels.
The committee has been working hard to create a structure for additional professional development opportunities in a virtual environment. The goal is to find practitioners who have experiences within the 12 foundational areas of the competencies and help to build online content, using a four-week cohort model, that’s led by members within NODA. The committee is currently in the pilot phase of developing modules within the competency of Research, Assessment, and Evaluation.
This is where you come in. We are looking for practitioners who are interested in helping to create the content for the Research, Assessment, and Evaluation module and have relevant experience in the Advanced competency level. Our goal is to develop content, discussions, and exercises for this competency to test with members. Our timeline is to develop content during early summer and pilot with a small group before the fall. Apply here to be considered for creating content for this competency! The deadline to submit materials for Research, Assessment, and Evaluation is Friday, May 15.
