With the increased demand for online or virtual courses, educators have increasingly been faced with the need to design significant online and blended learning experiences as well. Through this workshop teaching professionals will learn about these important course design fundamentals and apply them to one of their own courses. The half-day workshop with a slant toward online modules and courses is a blend of didactic instruction, team activities, and individual project work time.
Teaching Prevention 2013 will tackle the important issues in prevention and public health education in an environment conducive to reﬂection and dialogue. The APTR annual meeting brings together a collaborative, invigorating community from across the health professions in order to broaden your ability to create innovative courses that engage students.

Academic prevention operates at the interface of higher education, clinical prevention, and public health, meaning prevention educators must keep current on events and trends in multiple arenas. Economic conditions, political debates, new technologies, evolving pedagogies, changing accreditation standards, and expanding definitions of academic scholarship are creating both new challenges and new opportunities for prevention faculty and practice professionals.
We invite you to be part of the dialogue by participating in this two-day conference featuring a faculty development workshop, plenary sessions, oral presentation sessions, poster presentations and networking sessions. All activities will focus on thinking creatively about the knowledge, skills, infrastructure, and resources needed to practice and promote academic prevention.
- EXPLORE opportunities and challenges in advancing prevention through health reform implementation.
- PROMOTE integration of public health and clinical health sciences in population health teaching, training and practice.
- SHARE innovative approaches and trends in curriculum design, new technologies and academic scholarship
Enjoy lively discussions in a collegial environment at networking events that, for many, continue after the meeting has ended. Participants leave Teaching Prevention with a renewed commitment to prevention and the health of the nation.
