Upon the CEC’s completion of the core curriculum, they will choose a Theory Integration Presentation Mentor from the list of mentors that is on the ACPE website. A key role for the mentor is to determine when the CEC’s presentation is ready to be reviewed by a committee. The development of the presentation is a dialogical process from the very beginning and is designed to support the work of the training ACPE Certified Educator and the CEC.

The Theory Presentation Mentor will communicate regularly with the Training ACPE Certified Educator to ensure that they are working together.

In conversation with their Training Educator and Theory Integration Presentation Mentor, the CEC will choose one of the following methods for the final product:

  • A written, 15-20 page paper that includes all topic areas
  • Three written, individual papers addressing each topic area separately
  • A PowerPoint (or similar) presentation or series of presentations, integrating oral, written, and visual elements

A mentor and CEC may also mix and match the above elements to design an appropriate presentation that both addresses the rubric and the Phase I competencies.
