Distance Learning Modules

We have more than ten distance learning modules available. Each distance learning module is facilitated by one of our Research Associates and includes clear learning objectives, a review of research, a discussion of application to practice, interactive participation activities, and post-tests.

Other courses have been developed or adapted for specific projects and/or agencies. All course materials can be accessed via the Internet on the University of Cincinnati Blackboard Learning System, or agencies may host them on their own websites. 

Distance learning modules are self-administered, and can also be supplemented with individual homework assignments and/or group action planning exercises. UCCI staff will then review submissions and provide feedback via video conference.
