Weekly assignments will be provided each week which will require the students to select a weekly event (could be TED talk event, local event, community event, online event, current event etc) which relates to the topic discussed in lecture that week.
Students are expected to view one external event a week and provide a reflection on the Weekly Assignment link in Canvas.
For this assignment our focus is on “The Move from Theory to Practice”
This week is all about a Health Behavior Promotion that you would like to implement
Using an idea of your own (a Health Promotion program that you would like to implement) please complete the following outline for this week’s assignment. Please use the slides from Slide Deck 5 Part 1 for guidance.
This Weekly Assignment will be the basis for a program that you would like to implement after we complete this course.
