The TRAIN Affiliate Consortium (TAC) Annual Meeting is an invitation-only conference/workshop that provides opportunities for learning professionals in public health and healthcare to share knowledge and experiences, and to exchange information and resources about public health and healthcare training, education, and preparedness. The TAC is comprised of 28 TRAIN affiliates, 25 states and 3 national organizations that have funded a customized TRAIN portal. The theme for this year’s meeting is “Analyzing Public Health Learning.” Topics that will be discussed include: connecting the healthcare field and TRAIN, learning analytics, comparing training across learners and affiliates, and computer training on TRAIN, the nation’s premier learning management network for professionals and volunteers who protect the public’s health. The full, draft conference agenda can be downloaded by following the link above.
Last year’s TAC Meeting was one of the most successful and well-attended thus far, with nearly 50 attendees from both affiliate and non-affiliate states and organizations. This year’s three-day meeting will take place on May 6 – 8, 2014 in Atlanta, Georgia and we expect it will be an even greater success. The meeting is sponsored by the Public Health Foundation (PHF) and TRAIN’s IT vendor Knowledge Management Interactive (KMi), and hosted by the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
