Community-Based Instruction

 

Foundations of Community-Based Instruction Series

The Foundations of CBI Series is a 20-hour intensive course delivered through Rutgers Canvas Learning Management System and Zoom across 10 weeks. It is designed for any school personnel involved in the programming and implementation of CBI for students with disabilities of all ages. Participants will learn about the principles and value of CBI as an instructional practice; how to plan meaningful lessons for diverse community settings; how to employ best-practice strategies to promote skill acquisition, application, and retention; and how to effectively program and coordinate logistics that support quality and sustainable CBI practices. 

 

As administrative support is vital to the success of CBI, district staff may not participate in the 2021- 2022 Foundations of CBI Series unless an administrator has participated in the Orientation Session for Administrators or viewed this recorded version: Foundations of CBI Training Opportunities Recording.

Note: Please watch the recording in its entirety to review the training format and requirements before registering. The first page of each registration form also provides a detailed summary, deadlines, eligibility criteria, and commitments. If you have any questions after reviewing the recording and summary, please contact the CBI Team.

Job Coaching for Career Exploration in Community Settings

To provide the most successful transition from school to employment, it is essential for schools utilizing Community-Based Instruction (CBI) for career exploration to have well trained and prepared staff. This two-day training will describe the roles and responsibilities of school-based staff, or job coaches, who provide on-the-job support to students participating in work-based learning experiences in community settings. The training will provide an overview of disability history, the evolution away from segregated to integrated employment settings, person-centered approaches, evidence-based strategies including the application of direct and systematic instruction used at job sites, and collection and use of data for informed decision making.

Note: This training is ONLY open to school staff. School-based job coaches must be supervised by a certified teacher who has completed the required courses to coordinate Work-Based Learning (formerly SLE). For more information, please visit the New Jersey Safe Schools Program.

Certificates: Certificates of Attendance with title and duration of NJ Department of Education Professional Development Hours will be provided.

These events are delivered virtually through Zoom and are intended for educators, administrators, job coaches, support staff and other school staff interested in collaborating, connecting, and sharing information on CBI practices.

Adapted CBI Webinar Series
The CBI Project, in partnership with the NJ Department of Education, Office of Special Education, offered a two-day Adapted Community-Based Instruction Webinar Series for educators, administrators, support staff, and other school-based professionals. We developed this with the intent to support planning for remote Extended School Year programs. Participants learned how to identify creative ways to provide meaningful and appropriate learning experiences that promote and maintain skill sets for success in adult life. Participants also learned how to increase collaboration with families and leverage these partnerships to enhance the learning process.

 

Day 1: CBI for a COVID-19 Community
This webinar discusses the transition of the traditional community to virtual and home-based settings and explore considerations for prioritizing instruction. We introduce an adapted planning method to identify authentic learning experiences that promote functional skill practice in our available settings. Lastly, we review complimentary evidence-based strategies that can support and enhance skill acquisition and maintenance while we continue to provide remote instruction.

Continuing Education Credit and Certificates of Attendance are not offered for this webinar.
