The 5-day Westinghouse Mind, Brain, and Education (MBE) Science Instructor Training Course is designed to introduce students to the key concepts of MBE Science and to their application in nuclear training courses. The course will describe various research-based teaching and learning techniques that can be immediately used by the station training instructor staff in upcoming classes. Utility instructor staff will develop an understanding of why these techniques work to promote meaningful learning and long-term retention. Purposeful practice sessions are incorporated to develop instructors’ ability to implement these techniques effectively.
This course will be conducted at the Westinghouse Cranberry Township Facility located approximately 30 minutes north of downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The target minimum number of students for the course is ten (10) students.
If minimum number of students (10) is not met, the course will be cancelled 30 days prior to the start date.
