"One of my most common and easiest ways that I assess the learning needs of my students is by pausing every few minutes to see whether students are following along with the lesson. It not only identifies gaps in comprehension, but helps break up lectures into more digestible bites."
"I can tell mainly by their body language and facial expressions if they are following or not. I encourage an open forum to ask and answer questions so we can all learn from each other."
As a Health Educator you use formal and informal techniques to assess the learning needs and styles of your students. Tell the interviewer about a successful way you were able to reach your students. Were you recognized by your supervisor for a job well done?
"My most recent event was a cooking class. We had 12 participants and all had a great time. Everyone laughed, helped each other out and learned the importance of eating fresh and eating healthy. I knew it was a successful class because the class that followed has a waiting list of 10 people."
"My most successful class was a class I brought to our local middle school. My audience was 200 children full of smiles and questions. We had a great time, they were very engaged and everyone learned something."
As a Health Educator you assess individual and community needs for health education.
You plan health education strategies, interventions, and programs. Tell the interviewer about a recent program you taught and why you felt it was successful. Where you able to start a program and 1 year later it was still running successfully? Did you increase attendance and knowledge of your students?
