AT Cares

The ATs Care program is designed to offer crisis management training opportunities for athletic trainers dealing with the aftermath of a critical incident. The mission of the ATs Care Committee is to aid ATs and AT students who have been through a critical incident by utilizing a peer-to peer-system to assist, monitor and encourage these individuals to seek initial support through state or regional ATs Care teams.

AT EducATionalist and WFAAT Joint Webinar:

  • "PROGRAMMATIC ASSESSMENT IN A REMOTE WORLD: USING TECHNOLOGY AND EVIDENCE TO ASSESS STUDENT LEARNING AND PROGRAM EFFECTIVENESS IN ATHLETIC TRAINING AND THERAPY"

  • The program provided a brief overview of approaches to programmatic assessment, and the "assessment AS learning" approach in athletic training education contexts, and demonstrated the use of Microsoft Forms and Qualtrics for the development of valid and meaningful modules that can be used as progress tests and/or summative outcomes measures. Given the adaptations required from the COVID-19 situation, valid, online assessment modules are even more relevant and needed for programmatic assessment and accreditation compliance.
