ON-LINE: Workflow Analysis 201
To be streamed Thursday May 28, 6-8 PM Central Time
NOTE: Eight spaces open for May 28.
LEVA membership is NOT required to take this course.
This two-hour workshop is limited to ten students. Read WHO CAN ATTEND?
Workflow Analysis 201 is “hands-on” and interactive. It builds upon the skills learned in Workflow Analysis 101 focusing specifically on the processes used to produce the analysis, exhibits and the illustrative report using a peer review-based curriculum.
WHO CAN ATTEND? Beginner to advanced forensic video technicians and analysts who have successfully completed Workflow Analysis 101 and LEVA Level 1 or higher course and/or who are currently tasked with video/image clarification responsibilities.
OBJECTIVES / DETAILS: Students will gain experience/knowledge by learning specific details related to the peer review process, defense expert challenges, technical changes associated with educating an attorney during trial preparations and pretrial hearings (Daubert/Frye hearings).
In Workflow Analysis 101 classes students were taught the skills for processing video, creating sequential referenced images, applied clarification corrections and how to created work product exhibits. Now it’s time to dive deeper by bringing all of your peripheral FVA skills to court. This class focuses on defending the problem-solving processes selected and the exhibits provided.
Students will be provided one random case (from a pool of cases) prior to starting the online class and asked to submit/complete a specific analysis request via a written report (mock case report). The results will be peer-reviewed by the instructor and used during class as learning tools. Through the peer review process and group discussions, students will gain valuable insight into what is needed/expected when defending their work, learn how to respond to challenges raised by the “opposing experts” (i.e. your instructor), clearly articulate technical processes using simple (layperson) terms and how to assist an attorney with laying the foundational questions about the technical aspects of the FVA.
This class may also serve as the foundation for anyone attending the LEVA Levels 2 thru 4 or any current LEVA Certified Technician who may apply for certification as a Forensic Video Analyst.
