Please leave FEEDBACK on today's webinar!!

Image of lunch bag and apple to signify lunch and learn sessionThe demographics of students entering into master of public health programs has shifted over the years yielding classrooms full of eager students with little professional workplace experience.  Hiring managers and supervisors in the field have increasingly wanted graduates to be more prepared to work effectively in teams, apply critical thinking and problem solving skills, and demonstrate basic managerial functions like work-planning and agenda setting. Many methods can be deployed to engage students in a manner that prepares them not only with the content and technical skills needed to thrive in the public health workforce, but with the essential professional skills, as well.  

Join Trish Elliott for a conversation about how to transform a traditional graduate classroom environment into a space where professional skills can be developed, practiced, and assessed.  We’ll have a 20-minute presentation followed by 20 minutes of discussion and collective problem solving among our community of both academics and employers.
