Promoting Knowledge Gain & Behavior Change Through Effective Education

This session will focus on the theme of working with lay audiences to elicit knowledge gain and behavior change. We’ve spent more than a year providing military helping professionals top-notch content and subject-matter expertise on a variety of relevant topics but we’ve never really focused on core professional development. And, for some professionals, specifically those with no background or training in education or through a professional licensure, this may be brand new information.

Key objectives include:
  • Effective communication: active listening and responding
  • Principles of adult learning: how and why adults take in and process information
  • Stages of change: how and why adults think about implementing new knowledge/behaviors

Continuing Education (CE) Credit OR Certificate of Completion
