How Can the Guide to Improving and Measuring the Impact of Training Continue to Grow?
To support the ongoing training of public health professionals, the Council on Linkages Between Academia and Public Health Practice (Council on Linkages) developed an online resource focused on enhancing public health training efforts. The Guide to Improving and Measuring the Impact of Training aims to help training institutions and programs, trainers, public health organizations, and sponsors of training navigate the training process. It includes strategies and methods for improving and evaluating training, as well as references to literature on training and evaluation of training, and was designed to grow as new resources became available. Over the past few months, literature references have been updated, and the Council on Linkages is now seeking to add tools and examples to help implement the strategies and methods described in the guide. If you have tools, examples, or other relevant resources to share, please contact Janelle Nichols at email@example.com.
