There are challenges in efficiently delivering an engaging inter-professional authentic learning experience for a large diverse group. SPPH410 (Improving Public Health: An Inter-professional Approach to Designing and Implementing Effective Interventions) provides a successful example. Initial experience with this annual course was reported in a 2016 international conference and subsequent 2017 international journal publication. This workshop describes more recent experience and provides sample material handouts, inviting discussion regarding how SPPH410 overcomes those challenges.

Participants will:
– Define key challenges in designing and efficiently conducting large intensive classes that engage diverse groups
– Explore the relative merits of several strategies to overcome these challenges
– Identify strategies and resources to support inter-professional learning activity
