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.

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.
