The ISU Single & Pair Skating Technical Committee is pleased to announce the availability of Learning Exercises for Technical Controllers and Technical Specialists on the ISU eLearning platform. The purpose of the exercises is to provide continuing education and practice for technical panel members. The specific objectives are as follows:
- maintain technical knowledge and skills
- review existing and new rules and guidelines
- provide clarifications
- establish consistency in identifying elements and their demonstrated features
Please note: the exercises in the modules will not affect your current status, nor will they count for reappointment or a seminar.
There are two separate Learning Exercises, one for Singles and one for Pairs. The format is a self-paced individual exercise that consists of a questionnaire with multiple choice questions that focus on the application of rules and regulations to realistic situations. There are illustrative videos that accompany many of the questions. The questionnaire is scored electronically and can be undertaken as many times as the official wishes with a different selection of questions each time. There is detailled feedback for each question to promote learning and confirmation of knowledge.
Questions can be directed to the ISU Singles & Pair Technical Committee e-learning liaisons, Susan Lynch (firstname.lastname@example.org), Leena Laaksonen (email@example.com) or the Figure Skating Sport Director , Charlie Cyr (firstname.lastname@example.org)
