Instructor-to-Student Ratio


To have the best learning experience, adult students must have the opportunity to actively participate in course activities. PedFACTs courses require an instructor-to-student ratio of 1:6 for small group activities. CPR skills must be taught by an instructor certified in CPR. If more instructors are available, the number of students can be increased by 6 students per additional instructor. Some course activities, such as PedFACTs topic discussions, may be conducted with students in a larger group. The instructor-to-student ratio should not exceed 1:18 for large group activities. Experienced instructors have found that classes with even smaller instructor-to-student ratios enhance the learning experience.
