Join us in Portland for the Dangerous Decibels Educator Training Workshop. We will prepare and equip you to expertly present a classroom program that is been proven effective at changing knowledge, attitudes, and intended behaviors in students regarding their hearing health. The Dangerous Decibels classroom program has three key educational messages; 1) What are the sources of dangerous sounds? 2) What are the consequences of exposure to dangerous sounds? 3) How do I protect myself? Besides teaching the core content.
This two-day certification workshop is lead by Oregon Health & Science University, Portland State University, and University of Northern Colorado hearing conservation, health communication, educational outreach experts. Participants will receive an educator kit with graphics, simulations, supplies, a sound level meter, and a script needed to present the classroom program.
In addition to teaching the core content, the workshop will include background information on hearing, anatomy, physics of sound, children and noise, etc. Instruction also includes classroom management, hands-on activities, and an opportunity to deliver the Dangerous Decibels classroom program to instructors for critique and feedback. Workshop instructors are available after the workshop for continued support and as a resource through email or phone. We look forward to your participation.
