DOS CERTIFICATION TRAINING

The training process involves a two-day live webinar training, completion of video calibration exercises, a one-hour live calibration session, and successful completion of two practice observation in the field. PEAR staff offer live, webinar DoS trainings monthly and in-person training for state networks or organizations can be arranged as needed for an additional cost. PEAR staff provides ongoing technical assistance, quarterly data reports, and online data management support for all DoS observers for two years post-certification.

“Since I started the certification process, it really changed the way I observe when I’m inside a classroom. Even when I enter a classroom for other reasons, I can’t help but to observe according to the dimensions. Now I know what to look for when I’m in a classroom!”

“Not only was this helpful in observations but helpful for me in my teaching and programming practices.

I will definitely use what I learned to create the best opportunities for learning.”

PROGRAM PLANNING TOOL TRAINING

The DoS PPT training is ideal for practitioners, coaches, and facilitators who are looking to strengthen their ability to plan and deliver high-quality STEM activities. This 3-hour training will provide an overview of the DoS Framework to help trainees develop an understanding of each of the 12 indicators of program quality as defined by DoS.  During this training, we will also review the  Program Planning Tool itself,  and provide an opportunity to practice using the PPT with popular STEM curriculum.

 

  • TBD (Offered occasionally and primarily upon request)

Please contact our STEM Coordinator, Hannah Meisels, for more information about this training: hmeisels@mclean.harvard.edu

“This training gave me the tools needed to be able to ensure my staff and partners include the framework in their facilitation styles and provide feedback to areas of need.”

FRAMEWORK OVERVIEW TRAINING

The DoS Framework Overview Training provides an introduction to the DoS Framework for quality STEM programming. This 3-hour session is ideal for network leads, program administrators, or funders seeking to better understand how to design and improve high-quality STEM learning experiences for youth. Suggestions for setting up a system for program quality including issues of data collection, outcomes and reporting will also be shared. While practitioners may benefit from this training, we suggest our DoS Framework Workshop for those that work directly to implement STEM programming.

  • TBD (Available privately upon request)
