Regional field coordinators serve as liaisons to the National Institute of Corrections and are responsible for initiating, coordinating, and disseminating quality training initiatives and network resources responsive to the needs of correctional agencies. This document, in the format of a DACUM profile, outlines the duties and related tasks of regional field coordinators. It also summarizes the knowledge, attitudes, skills needed to enter this profession, in addition to past experience with operating related equipment and tools.
This three-hour broadcast is intended to help realign your training with agency outcomes to help your agency become a learning organization.
Using a variety of methods—including discussions, participant and team activities, and demonstrations—the broadcast will explore learning organization principles as exemplified by the work of David Garvin, Peter Senge and others.
During this discussion, participants will: recognize the importance of linking training to agency outcomes; identify three building blocks for creating a learning organization; and explore ways to realign organizations to support the link between training and agency outcomes.
This webinar is an overview of NIC’s white paper Training from A to E: Analysis to Evaluation (032740) on learning and performance, and its application to corrections training. During the webinar, participants had the opportunity to engage in activities to apply learning and performance research to the training they analyze, design, develop, implement and evaluate in their own organization. There is a transcript available for the webinar.
