We welcome feedback on our courses and aim to continuously improve our webinars and online courses. Here’s a snapshot of what participants are sharing.
I love Canvas as a platform for online education. The modules make it easy to follow and return to information if needed. And the expectations are clear. Perfect amount of information without being overwhelming.
I thought this tool was great. It was nice to see the course outline and I liked that it was broken up into smaller chunks, which made it easier to go back and review certain sections.
The training painted a broad picture of the problem of the Black maternity health crisis in America and ways to tackle the problem. The material is useful at this time deep racial divide to heal wounds and create more opportunities for the disadvantaged population.
The training was presented with great explanation and tools local health departments can use when working through their strategic planning process.
This is the best webinar I’ve watched about health equity and how to begin the process of advancing towards health equity. Thank you so much! I can’t wait to share the recording with my team and possibly reach out to HIP [Human Impact Partners] about possibly working to build our own and our partner’s capacity and knowledge about health equity and how to move towards transformational change.
Thank you for all the insight on how to build a data platform in terms of colors, structure, visibility. I will be able to use this information immediately.
LOVED the conversational nature of this webinar and the first webinar in the succession planning. Very engaging and interesting, kept my attention in a way that typical webinars do not.
Ramona is an excellent trainer and made the information accessible. It was also very comprehensive. This training reinforced the necessity of keeping current on LGBTQ+ issues and terminology. I appreciated the video sent ahead of time as well. Thank you!
The training was very thorough and presented well. I was especially appreciative of the training exercises utilizing Excel so that hands-on learning was feasible even through an online course.
I very much appreciated the content and especially the aspect of how addressing racism will improve the other isms.
Ben was a great and engaging presenter – hard to find in these days of so many online meetings. Really great job and really great take aways from this learning session.
This was a great presentation. I liked that I was able to print slides ahead of time to review and that I could look at the slides on the computer and see the presenter on screen. I also liked being able to see the chat box and listen in to questions that apply to my practice in public health as well.
I thought that the content was delivered great. Having a survivor as well as current health workers in the field and experts allowed for multiple viewpoints.
I want to thank you for the webinar last week. I learned so much and it will definitely help guide and shape my department’s efforts and strategies moving forward. I must admit prior to that presentation I was feeling overwhelmed… My City did proclaim Racism as a Public Health Crisis but we now need to formulate action steps! Thank you again. Looking forward to part two.
This is my favorite training that I’ve completed so far through the PHTC, and I have done around six or so others. The systems thinking training includes frequent interactive opportunities to apply the information learned. The amount of content per slide was just right. Slides were highly visual and enhanced my learning. Systems thinking is still a relatively new skill for public health, and I appreciate the open-ended questions throughout. The presenter was highly effective and an inspiration for teaching and learning! She was informative and also came across as very authentic. I almost feel like we had a conversation–which is really incredible since this was an asynchronous training. I hope she will lead more trainings like this!
I really enjoyed how there were multiple different ways that the training was delivered. I liked how it was like listening to a recorded lecture but there were also main points listed along with helpful diagrams. There were also questions at the end of each sections and case studies that could be discussed. Overall, I like how the information was presented in many different forms.
This session was immensely useful to me, and as evidence, I took 4 pages of notes. I feared stepping away and missing any nuggets of wisdom. I particularly appreciated the focus on tangible outcomes and skills one could consider in a mentorship relationship, and specific actions to take. I appreciated the informal discussion, and sharing of personal experiences. I would love to continue to hear the presenters discuss mentorship in more detail.
I LOVED one of Dr. Roberts’ closing remarks, “It is time to think differently and to do differently.” Powerful words! As a white person in a position of power (college lecturer), I struggle with how to use my power, position and privilege in the classroom to dismantle racism, to name it, and to see where I am complicit. After this training, I am adding the language of “centering, listening to, and amplifying black voices!”
It was great to hear the different ideas and strategies on mentorship from panelists coming from different backgrounds/organizations, and also the difference between mentorship from coaching. In my workplace, we never had any formal type of mentorship. So, it was great to learn more about this topic and how to implement it in our organizations.
Tony and Mang gave good examples on how groups of people are culturally different even when they speak the same language and their personal beliefs in treating illness. I believe the information and best practices for reaching these communities was extremely valuable. This pandemic has really tested not only the public health system but also healthcare. All the speakers provided realistic strategies in reaching both communities and have identified ways in which our old practices will not be as effective during covid-19 (i.e., not being able to work due to the shutdown and food insecurity is not an acute problem during covid-19, it has become a chronic problem for families throughout our nation).
