Dear TAC Participant,
Welcome to TAC! You’re about to embark on a training that is designed to build your clinical skills in the area of adoption competency.
Each TAC participant is enrolled by the TAC Program Coordinator in the Ideas@TheInstitute Learning Management System (LMS) and the TAC course specific to your cohort.
Once enrolled, you will receive an email confirming that you are enrolled in the TAC training. This email will provide a link to click on to access the training (https://theinstitute.myabsorb.com/#/login).
Please note the following:
- Your username will be the email address you provided to the trainers
- Your temporary password will be: 2changeME!
You are encouraged to change your password when you first access the LMS – please be sure and make note of your password for future access to the training. You will need to log in to the LMS using your username and new password to access to the participant materials for each module.
In the LMS dashboard, you will have a “TAC Training Participant Curriculum” icon. Once you click on this you will have access to an overview of each session you are enrolled in. Please note, when first enrolled you will generally only have access to the first two or three modules. For each subsequent module, you will generally have access to module materials within 2 or 3 weeks of your class. Note that there is no requirement to review module materials prior to class. If homework reading is assigned at the end of a class in preparation for the next module, the required articles or links will be provided during that session.
Because Module 1 is an online lesson the materials will look different from the other modules. You will have a link to an introductory video to view first and then will have access to a PDF of the on-line materials. You are encouraged to download this lesson to your computer and will need to do this if you want the links to articles and videos to work. You will also need to complete the short post-test in order to show that the module was completed.
Modules 2 through 12 are instructor-led lessons so there is no online content. You will need to click on the “Resources” tab to access the Participant Guide, separate Handouts and the make-up assignments. Please note that the Participant Guide will provide you with all the slides and handouts for each module in one document. You are encouraged to download this and save it to your computer. If you want access to any of the handouts individually you can also view or download those individually or the entire batch as a group.
Unless otherwise indicated by your trainers, none of the materials in the participant guides or handouts will be distributed in class. Make sure to download to your computer or print and bring all materials with you to class.
If you run into any problems accessing materials, please email Dawn Wilson, C.A.S.E. National Training Director. You may download the full welcome letter as a PDF by clicking the button below.
