#SLSTOGETHERWECAN Blended Learning Institute
#SLSTOGETHERWECAN Blended Learning Institute is a health and safety leadership program for individual students (ages 11-19) or school groups.
Training will focus on six “hot spot topics” identified by our SLS State Student Advisory Board (SAB). It will consist of online and in-person meetings and events (if able) where students will learn about the “hot spots”, work with other students, listen to expert speakers, have entertainment, and develop a project/message to help their peers understand the importance of that topic. Participants may join one or more “hot spots”.
Each “Hot Spot” Series is 6 sessions at 4pm (Online and In-person*).
Each Hot Spot Workshop Agenda will follow this format: Topic Part 1 (Online); Topic Part 2 (In-person);
Communicating Your Message (Online); Developing Your Project (In-person); Project Planning Support (Online);
Celebration and Project Presentation (In-person)
*Note: All in-person sessions will also be streamed online
Upon completion of “hot spots” workshop series you will be prepared to plan a project on your
topic for your peers, school and community. One project for each “hot spot” will be selected to receive a $500 SLS Hall of Fame Scholarship!
The six “hot spots” are: Healthy Relationships, Bullying/Inclusiveness, Mental Health, Distracted Driving, Alcohol, and Vaping/Marijuana. The Institute format consist of: four online workshops, two in-person workshops that will include student presenters, SLS presenters, and expert speakers, with a final in-person celebration where students present the project that they developed based on the knowledge they gained during the Institute. In-person workshops will be regional to reach all of Michigan. Students will also receive a 23-minute, one-on-one consultation with SLS Program Director, Dawn Flood, the week of Feb. 8-12, 2021 to help plan their project.
The sessions will be recorded. Contact Dawn at: dmf@SLSToday.org to schedule a location near you.
Each session will begin at 4pm each day.
We know how important it is for students to interact in-person. Which is why the program is a mixture of online and in-person sessions. All in-person sessions will follow social distancing and masks guidelines. If students are unable to attend in-person sessions, they can still participate by zoom during those sessions.
