Early in the course, participants select an area in which to develop a unit of instruction. As you work through each chapter, you will apply the pertinent principles and methods to the development of your unit of instruction. By the end of the course, you will have completed the design of an entire unit of instruction, following the Teaching Public Health model.

The instructors give feedback to the participants by e-mail, via the Internet and by phone, as students develop their instructional unit. Each component of the unit, the job description, the learning objectives, the evaluation plan, the syllabus and session plans are reviewed by the instructors. Students are welcome to submit course components as many times as needed. This allows participants to make changes in their course designs as the course takes shape. Because students receive rapid feedback, misconceptions and errors are nipped in the bud.
