The academy seeks to elevate the excellence, visibility, scholarship and impact of learning and teaching in public health. It achieves these goals by publicly honoring faculty who excel in learning, teaching, and student mentoring; by sharing and disseminating discoveries in learning and instructional scholarship and experience; and by providing opportunities and resources to promote the role of teaching and learning among public health colleagues, programs, and schools.
Each year, during the ASPH and APHA annual meetings, the academy hosts an Annual Forum of the best in teaching. This year's Forum will take place on Monday October 29 at 10:30 am in San Francisco, CA. The title is "A Case Discussion Demonstration" and it will be presented by Nancy Kane (Harvard School of Public Health). For details on the event and how to register, see the flyer here. The Forum is free, but registered participants will receive preference due to limited seating. Click here for presentations from previous annual forums dating back to 2007.
