The Active Learning Course provided me with a framework to actualize educational initiatives. After the course, I have been able to identify and engage champions for active learning who are in the initial stages of introducing weekly physical activity and mindfulness breaks at our neighborhood high school.

Public health educators working in childhood obesity prevention inevitably work with schools. The Active Learning Specialist course provides insight into how best to use physical activity in school to help kids learn and move more, as well as bridge the gap between public health and education.
