5024.0 Trans-Disciplinary Education

Wednesday, November 10, 2010: 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM
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 trans-disciplinary education.
Session Objectives: List three principles of experiential learning. Define Community-Based Participatory Research and articulate the core principles involved in this collaborative research method. Identify opportunities and challenges in implementing a course on disability and public health. Describe the challenges and opportunities for graduate students enrolled in trans-disciplinary classes. Explain the role of mathematical models in public health research.
