Frequently Asked Questions

 

What is a Learning Collaborative?
A learning collaborative is a training experience designed for a set group of participants to engage in active learning on a particular subject, with targeted outcomes that often involve process improvement in the particular subject area.

 

How is a Learning Collaborative different than a webinar series?
In a learning collaborative, a group of people (often called a cohort), engage in training, peer sharing, and homework assignments on a particular subject. While these sessions are often web-based, similar to webinars, there are also homework assignments and opportunities to interact with peers through an online discussion board.

 

Is a Learning Collaborative for me?
If you’d like to change or improve current processes and are willing to make a bit of extra effort to do so, then yes! Every effort is made to utilize the session time efficiently, and homework assignments are designed work on a process or system that can be implemented at your health center.

 

Is attendance mandatory at all sessions? What about the homework?
While not mandatory, your attendance in the sessions will further your knowledge of the subject matter. By attending the web sessions, office hours and engaging on the discussion board, you’ll learn not only from the faculty, but from your fellow cohort members as well. The relationships you’ll build with colleagues during the learning collaborative can benefit you even after it ends. Simply put, the more you put into the learning collaborative, the more you’ll get out of it.

 

Additionally, the homework assigned to the cohort is not just for busy work; it designed to assist you with a process or strategy that you can put in place at your health center. Completing the homework will actually assist you with those process or developing strategies at your health center – it is a “win-win”!
