Self-Reflection in Family Life Education: The Educator as a Programming Component
Family Life Education programming involves several components, including the curriculum, the participants, and the educator.
The educator's characteristics and qualities, however, are often neglected in decision-making and planning for programming. Does it make a difference if the parent educator has children or not, or if the couples educator believes in cohabitation? What if one educator likes to teach "by the book" and another wants to follow the lead of the participants? And what if one is trained as a social worker and another as a minister?
In this webinar, Karen Myers-Bowman, Ph.D., CFLE, and Judy Myers-Walls, Ph.D., CFLE, will discuss all three components of FLE programming, focusing especially on the educator. The activities and information shared will help you identify how your background and training, role, teaching style/approach, philosophy/theoretical framework, culture, and values impact the effectiveness of your programming.
Approved for 1.5 CFLE contact hours of continuing education credit.
