What to Expect

We use a flipped-classroom approach, so you’ll work through course content independently and then connect with a small cohort of peers weekly for live learning sessions that provide an opportunity to ask questions, share your knowledge, and learn from others.

Each session will include a facilitated discussion among class participants related to that week’s topic. The course facilitator as well as guest panelists will lead the discussion, engage participants, and answer questions. Below is the schedule for our live sessions.

6 Live Learning Sessions:

  1. Session #1: Orientation Session
  2. Session #2: The Foundations of Public Health 3.0 - Working Upstream
  3. Session #3: Centering around Community Leadership
  4. Session #4: Using Data Metrics to Set Your Goals and Track Impact
  5. Session #5: Getting Your Own House in Order
  6. Session #6: Getting Creative with Financing
  7. Session #7: Pulling it All Together

Successful completion of this course requires your participation in these sessions by video using a webcam or built-in camera on your device. Contact us if you need assistance accessing a webcam.

 

WEEKLY ONLINE LEARNING ACTIVITIES

Each week, you must complete assigned online learning activities that include reading and watching videos. There will also be a short assignment in preparation for each live learning session that should take about an hour to complete.
