About the Workshop:
SPHHS is committed to educational practices that contribute to student reflective learning that integrates lessons gained from academic courses, professional practice, and other experiences. The School now plans for accreditation by the US-Based Council on Education for Public Health.
In this presentation, John and Katherine will outline how the SPHHS gained by mapping courses to MPH Foundational Knowledge and Competencies, updating the program to align with new requirements for accreditation, and work integrating a PebblePad-based MPH Foundational Knowledge and Competency Workbook throughout the program. The Workbook facilitates student anticipation of learning, self-assessments of knowledge and skills, gathering evidence of academic and professional learning, and reflection and planning for future learning. A brief presentation of the Workbook will be included and the presenters will engage in a question and answer session with participants, and a discussion on how workbooks similar to the MPH workbook might help with program reviews and curriculum updates. included and the presenters will engage in a question and answer session with participants, and a discussion on how workbooks similar to the MPH workbook might help with program reviews and curriculum updates.
