HEAL curriculum provides a foundation in best teaching practices, educational scholarship and academic leadership to health professionals in training so that they develop essential skills as educators before transitioning into their careers.

CAHP Educational Research Seminar Series

The College of Allied Health Professions has a new charge to work on scholarship of teaching and learning and are planning an educational research seminar series. So many of us have professional and subject matter expertise but are not sure how to move the continuum from excellent teaching to education research. We would like to get some groups together to talk about education research, support each other and perhaps do some education research ourselves. 

If you have any ideas or would like to contribute to the series, please email the Academy.
