4071.0 Public Health Education: Learning Futures, Technologies and New Approaches in Education

Tuesday, November 9, 2010: 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
The Academic Public Health Caucus is a platform for APHA members to discuss issues of mutual concern regarding academic public health, such as academic public health practice. Specifically, the caucus provides a forum to showcase and learn about innovations in education, training, and academic research not only from public health academicians, but also from practitioners within public health institutions (i.e., federal, state, regional, local, private sector or non-profit organizations or personnel) that administer or participate in Academic/Practice partnerships. Academic/Practice partnerships include, but are not limited to, inter- multi- and trans-disciplinary collaborations to promote health and prevent disease and injury among populations. This session will focus on learning futures, technologies, and new approaches to public health education.
Session Objectives: Describe a multimedia process of health education materials development. Identify innovative strategies for engaging graduate students in the study of environmental justice. Explain the methodology used to conduct an evaluation of an online distance learning system. Explain how online learning can generate new realizations regarding the relationship between public health and climate change. Describe the development and implementation of an interactive learning exercise for public health executives to build skills in managing complexity.
