Succeeding in Research: Developing Your Conceptual Model. Year Developed: 2020. Source: Maternal and Child Health Bureau. Presenter(s): Alan Mendelsohn, MD. Type: Webinar Archive. Level: Introductory Intermediate. Length: 60 minutes.

Annotation: Improvement in Maternal and Child Health (MCH) depends largely on successful clinical and non-clinical research. Success in clinical research conducted by developmental-behavioral pediatricians and other MCH professionals can be enhanced through the application of theory and utilization of conceptual models to guide study design.

Learning Objectives: • Gain expertise in developing conceptual models based on theory, evidence and clinical experience; • Utilize conceptual models as a foundation for formulation of testable hypotheses; and • Apply conceptual models to study design.

Project READY: Reimagining Equity & Access for Diverse Youth. Year Developed: 2019. Source: The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill's School of Information and Library Science. Presenter(s): n.a.. Type: Professional Development Curriculum. Level: Intermediate. Length: Self-paced.

Annotation: Research shows that youth services library staff in both public and school libraries recognize the need for professional and personal knowledge related to race and racism and anti-racist work (Hughes-Hassell & Stivers, 2015); however, there are currently few comprehensive resources that specifically address the needs of library professionals. The Project READY curriculum addresses this gap in existing professional development opportunities for youth services library staff.

Learning Objectives: • Introduce youth services library staff to research in areas such as race and racism, critical theory, and culturally responsive or sustaining pedagogy. • Establish a shared understanding of foundational concepts and issues related to race, racism, and racial equity. • Encourage self-reflection related to race and racial identity for both white and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) library staff in public and school libraries. • Amplify the work of practitioners and scholars who are providing inclusive and culturally responsive services for youth of color and Indigenous youth. • Provide concrete strategies for creating and/or improving library programs and services for Black youth, Indigenous youth, and children and teens of color.

The Emerging Theoretical Framework of Life Course Health Development. Year Developed: 2018. Source: UCLA Center for Healthier Children, Families & Communities, Maternal and Child Health Life Course Research Network (LCRN). Presenter(s): Neal Halfon, MD, MPH; Christopher Forrest, MD, PhD. Type: Webinar. Level: Introductory. Length: 15 minutes.

Annotation: In this webinar, Drs. Halfon and Forrest present the 7 principles that comprise their life course health development framework, including the empirical evidence that underlies each principle and the implications for future research. By shining a light on how early experience conditions future biological responses and influences health development pathways, the presenters hope to encourage theory building and testing, inspire innovative transdisciplinary research, and lead to future discussions that can help to mature the framework into a scientific model with descriptive, explanatory, and predictive utility.

Learning Objectives: • Introduce the Handbook of Life Course Health Development • Describe the emergence and maturation the Life Course Health Development (LCHD) Framework • Develop an understanding of each of the seven LCHD principles
