Workshop 2 of the MCH CELL for Community-Partnered Teaching will highlight one example of an academic-practice partnership in a University at Albany graduate public health program planning course. It will include a description of how the partnership was formed, an overview of the program development course and the specific collaborative assignment, and lessons learned for collaboration on courses of this type. For the first part of the session, you will hear from the presenters, and then there will be a large group discussion to learn from one another on how others have engaged in similar partnerships and courses, including challenges and ways to overcome them. We invite you to share this event among your professional networks!

About the MCH CELL Workshop Series
Do you teach an existing public health course that involves students working with community partners as clients? Do you want to start a new course like this? Are you looking for an interactive and welcoming co-learning space with other instructors who either teach or want to teach public health courses like this? If so, then the Maternal and Child Health Community Engaged Learning Lab (MCH CELL) webinar series focused on community-partnered teaching is for you!
This workshop series is open to all public health instructors; no matter if you are a brand new or seasoned instructor, or if you teach outside the field of MCH. If you have questions about creating, facilitating, and sustaining courses like these or you have an interest in being part of an instructor community that seeks to develop and share best practices when integrating community partners meaningfully into their classes, then this space is for you.
Future workshops will cover courses such as: public health program evaluation, leadership, and communication.
We look forward to having you join us!
