Program Overview: This series of educational modules will prepare participants to manage playgroups using the LIMA ethical standard and use conspecific interactions for behavior modification. Cohort Structure: Learners will be invited to join a cohort of 75 individuals that will meet virtually for three months via the Litmos LMS platform. Each cohort will be invited to twice-monthly (bi-weekly) hour-long, live meetings via Zoom webinar so that questions can be answered live. The bi-weekly meetings will feature video analysis and discussion of relevant topics. A discussion board per cohort will be maintained and moderated. After matriculation of each cohort, the cohort’s discussion board will be archived. Registration process: Individuals interested in joining each cohort must submit an “e-mail of interest” to the executive director, Mara Velez (mara@shelterdogplay.org) requesting to be added to the upcoming cohort. Each person must login at least twice a month and complete modules in order to continue. If, after a period of 30 days, a learner has not logged in, they will be contacted; if no response within five days, their user account will be deactivated. Completion Timeframe: Learners will be expected to complete one module per week, which will require 60-90 minutes per week. The program consisting of Foundation and Intermediate modules will be expected to be completed within a three month time-frame. The total seat time per week is estimated to be two to two and a half hours. Learner Agreement: Prior to registration, each learner must sign an agreement stating that they will agree to the discussion rules, not screen record the sessions or content, nor use any of the materials provided for their own financial gain without prior written consent. Violation of the learner agreement will result in immediate account deactivation.
