First Line Supervision Fall 2020

Mon, September 14, 2020 8:00 AM - Thu, October 1, 2020 5:00 PM at Eaton County Sheriff’s Office in Charlotte, MI

The instructional format is problem-based learning (PBL) – the next generation in law enforcement training. PBL is defined as a “teaching or training method characterized by the use of ‘real world’ problems as a context for individuals to learn critical thinking and problem solving skills and acquire knowledge. It involves both knowing and doing.” (Lepinski) Another definition is “an instructional method in which the teacher builds instruction around a practical problem and encourages pupils to discuss the problem in small groups, with an aim to cultivate active learning, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills among them.” (Lahden) The instructor provides the learning environment and then relinquishes spotlight and allows the student to learn the material at their own pace and through the method that works best for him/her. The instructor switches from instruction, where they provide the material, to facilitation, during which time the facilitator guides the student through learning and understanding.
