Active Learning Strategies Using Videos

Course Summary:

This training is designed to help people support learners as they put the information they have learned into practice.  We explain differences between teaching with video alone versus using active learning strategies with videos.  Sample activities are demonstrated with existing videos produced by the WRPHTC on “preparing healthy foods on a budget.”  The videos are available for download in English and Spanish as a Resource for this training.  Activities presented are customizable for use with any videos you may be interested in using as part of group education.
