RIVA 205 - Moderating: Kid & Teens
Course Fee: $4,295 US$
RIVA 205 is a 3-day, in-person, hands-on course for the experienced moderator who want to add or improve their moderating skills with kids and teens. This course will help "moderators discover" new tools they can develop for this younger population. This course also includes a 90-minute webinar.
Moderators who have taken RIVA 201, 202, or 303; or have received the approval of RIVA's Training Director, Amber Tedesco. It is expected that participants in this class have been moderators for a period of time and want to upgrade their skills to better work with kids and teens (elementary and middle school aged) in qualitative sessions. Although older teens (high school) will be covered in the learning, the practice sessions are with elementary and middle school aged kids as conducting groups with them is much different then older teens (closer to adult age) and adults.
In addition to the intensive 3 Day course, students will also participate in a 90-minute webinar. These pre-class sessions will allow some basics to be covered so that time in class can be specifically tailored to class needs.
By participating in RIVA 205, one will gain an understanding of how to interview kids and teens (elementary and middle school aged) in individual and small group settings, troubleshoot problems and acquire a strong set of insights from children and teenagers by using age-appropriate expectations, proper recruiting methods, and kid-friendly exercises.
All students will have the opportunity to practice what they have learned. There will be two practice sessions with recruited respondents. Students will have the opportunity to conduct one practice session with younger kids and one with older kids.
The class will build on the core strength of the trainer who has a long history of working with this population and she will bring not only her experience but her expertise in setting up and managing projects for kids and teens.
RIVA 205 Moderating Kids/Teens is a hybrid of online and in-person teaching. This course will have a 90-minute webinar prior to the in-person session. The in-person portion of the class is held March 8-10, 2018 (Thursday-Saturday) in Rockville, MD. The 90-minute webinar is approximately 1 week prior to the in-person class.
This class is limited to 4 students and registration is on a first come/first serve basis.

After completing this RIVA course, you will receive a "Certificate of Completion" stating you have completed the coursework that was required of you. This is not the same as saying you are "certified" as a moderator/analyst/planner/facilitator. You may add this terminology to your resume: "Holds a Certificate of Completion in [NAME OF TRAINING COURSE], from the RIVA Training Institute." You cannot say you are a "Certified Researcher" because you have not completed a written exam or practicum. If you are interested in certification, please review RIVA's Master Moderator Certificate Program.
