3101.1 The ABC's of Developing, Submitting, and Implementing a Successful Learning Institute Course

Monday, October 27, 2008: 10:30 AM
The APHA Learning Institute is held immediately prior to the annual meeting and consists of a limited number of concentrated continuing education courses whose purpose is to promote skills enhancement in public health. These half day or full day educational experiences afford learners the chance to participate in a more intense and interactive experience than is available through the plenary or scientific sessions. Learning Institute course proposals are submitted in response to a call for proposals, published on the APHA website. Courses submitted are reviewed by the Continuing Education Subcommittee of the APHA Education Board. Based on the reviews from the past few years, a need has been identified for education and technical assistance in preparing and submitting the proposals.
Session Objectives: Differentiate between continuing education courses for APHA Learning Institute consideration and APHA scientific sessions. Describe the process for developing, submitting, and providing a course under the Learning Institute. Describe examples of successful courses provided through this process.
