Application for CMP Sponsorship

Instructor & Sponsor Form

Please complete and submit the forms above AT LEAST 45 days prior to the activity. Make sure you complete all fields and provide all required documentation. It is strongly recommended that you read Writing Measurable Educational Objectives below before completing your application.

CEUs for traditional activities will be determined using the following formula: One CEU equals to ten contact hours.

If you have any questions, please contact Bonnie Kaplan at b.kaplan@neu.edu. Or, call 857-366-4195 (V/VP).

If approved for ACET/CEUs, event flyers and other PR material MUST include RID logo and a short blurb. Please contact Bonnie PRIOR to printing and disseminating PR materials.

Writing Measurable Educational Objectives

One of the required fields on the form is to list your Measurable Educational Objectives. What are measurable educational objectives? Here are some questions you can ask yourself to draw measurable objectives from the workshop description.

How many key points does the instructor want students to “learn” from this workshop? Be specific. There are probably only about three or four main points.

How will learning occur? Remember that to incorporate new concepts we need to apply them. Active words such as discuss, practice, role-play, etc. tell us how learning occurs.

It is useful to think in terms of what the learners will be able to do as a result of the activity.

Here are some examples of measurable objectives:

  • Participants will be able to identify three ways mentoring can improve their skills.
  • Participants will be able to use four strategies for interpreting in mental health settings.
  • Participants will be able to use ASL classifiers to identify body parts.
  • Participants will be able to demonstrate appropriate use of classifiers.
  • At the end of the workshop, participants will identify three ways mentoring can improve their negotiation skills.
  • At the end of the training, participants will verbally explain how to successfully employ four strategies for interpreting in mental health settings.
  • At the end of the educational activity, participants will use six classifiers to identify body parts appropriately.
  • During the workshop, participants will demonstrate culturally appropriate use of formal register.

Here are some examples of NOT measurable objectives:

  • Participants will understand mentoring.
  • Participants will learn how to interpret in a mental health setting.
  • Participants will learn about classifiers.

After writing the educational objectives, re-read them, asking yourself this question:
Are these specific observable actions by participants that will demonstrate comprehension and integration of the topic presented.
