Instructor Biography: Austin Mandeville MHS, NRP 

As a paramedic by trade I began my career in the early 2000’s as an EMT. Quickly developing a passion for medicine, I immediately entered paramedic school in Florida where I graduated valedictorian. I had the pleasure of practicing EMS in Florida, North Carolina, and South Carolina and have served in almost every position in EMS including Operations Director, Training Officer, Field Supervisor, Business Development and Reimbursement, EMT, and Paramedic. I have also served as an Education Director, Paramedic and EMT Program Director, and Executive Director of Educational Institutions. I always took opportunities to teach and held adjunct faculty positions during my time in the field as instruction has always been a passion. In the ever-consistent pursuit of excellence in EMS 

and Education I enrolled in Western Carolina University where I received both a Bachelor of Science in Emergency Medical Care and master’s degree in Health Sciences. I am currently working towards my Ph.D. in Health Sciences with a dissertation topic of Turnover Intention among EMS Professionals. 

I currently hold positions as an Assistant Professor in Emergency Medical Care at Western Carolina University, Executive Director at Lowcountry Regional EMS Council, Committee Chairperson for the South Carolina EMS Association Education and Certification Committee and am a voting member for the South Carolina EMS Advisory Committee and South Carolina EMS Training Committee. My current pursuits are developing modern evidence based educational programs with a special focus in distance, virtual, and asynchronous educational modalities.

Creating the Ultimate Path to Learning: an evidence-based approach to develop educational models  that are both successful and meaningful to instructors and students. 

During these sessions we will explore educational best practices and the most recent relevant evidence for how our students learn. We will apply these into practical methods to create meaningful lesson plans and develop engaging educational content to ensure the success of both educators and students alike.
