While online learning often is effective in training motivated professionals, trainings focused on translating data to implementation and those emphasizing critical thinking are even more effective when there is enhanced interaction of other learners and educators. Recognizing this, the MCH Navigator's Learning Collaborative encourages dissemination of information about trainings, feedback about specific trainings and products, training- or content-specific questions, and interaction with training mentors:
Social Media. Learn about upcoming trainings on all MCH topics (both content- and competency-based) by following us on Twitter. Discover enduring competency-based trainings and stay connected what is going on in MCH by liking us on Facebook. Connect with us on LinkedIn to learn about professional development.
Ask a Question. Contact the MCH Navigator about a specific learning opportunity or more broadly about how you should go about professional development. Project staff will answer your questions directly and summarize your questions and provide answers on Facebook to share information with the overall MCH workforce community.
Provide Suggestions and Feedback. The MCH Navigator team invites members of the Title V workforce to provide feedback on new learning opportunities that we've identified for inclusion in this website and on new products developed to address the needs of public health professionals in the field. Your comments are invited and most welcome!
Talk with a Training Mentor. If you have broader questions about the types of learning opportunities that would be appropriate for you to look into, graduate programs in MCH, professional development tracks, or certificate programs, please contact us, and we'll connect you with with a MCH Navigator advisor to begin a conversation.
Learn Collaboratively with a Micro-Learning Program. This monthly series explores each competency, provides learning opportunities and implementation strategies, and culminates in an interactive learning session with an expert from the field. Learn at your own pace and with the ability to interact with others who are completing one of our Micro-Learning programs.
