Wellspring’s eLearning courses in Professional Development Training for Educators are designed to bring awareness to faculty, school administrators, and other school professionals on several serious challenges facing our youth and teens today. Wellspring currently offers nine awareness courses for education professionals covering a variety of real, critical, and potentially life-threatening or life-altering issues. All courses are continuously brought up-to-date to reflect the latest updates, trends and Department of Education and legislative mandates. Additionally, all course tests were updated to multiple choice to better evaluate participant knowledge. The following courses are available:
- Alcohol and Drug Awareness
- Alcohol and Drug Abuse
- Prescription Drug Overview
- HIB - Harassment, Intimidation and Bullying
- Cyberbullying Primer
- Youth Suicide Awareness
- Youth Suicide Prevention
- Recognizing Child Abuse and Neglect
- Educational Technology
All courses earn one (1) CEUs. To meet State requirements on Youth Suicide, both courses must be taken.
Each course provides current facts and figures to illustrate the severity of the topic at hand. Practical guides are provided to help educators recognize the signs and symptoms of each issue. Policies and procedures governed by New Jersey statutes and administrative code are discussed. By taking these courses and understanding the information contained in them, educators and school administrators will take a huge step toward providing a healthy school environment for all their students. Information in these training courses is presented so that the reader can progress through the course at his or her own pace. Course navigation tools are provided that allow the reader to easily go back to any part of the course and review any information. Quizzes ensure accurate understanding of the information. Completion of the quizzes is tracked for administrators, but specific quiz scores are not reported.
