The PSIA-AASI Teams and educational leaders from across the country took a bold leap forward at Team Training and Fall Conference in Keystone, CO, last week, focusing on how Learning Outcomes and Teaching Fundamentals can improve the professional development and certification process for everyone.
One other key new addition to this year’s event was PSIA-AASI’s First Chair podcasts, which allowed PSIA-AASI members to listen to interviews in the comfort of their car, office, or home.
Here are five fresh podcasts that will help you appreciate all the hard work that went into Team Training and Fall Conference, and how it benefits you.
Also be sure to follow PSIA-AASI’s iTunes and Souncloud channels for regular updates throughout the season.
