After Completion of the Course

All participants are invited and encouraged to develop an Applied Learning Project (ALP) after completing the 4-day course. The purpose of the ALP is

  • To provide an opportunity for participants to apply knowledge from the course to an issue of concern in their facility (the project)
  • To provide an opportunity for participants to work as part of a team to address an important issue in their facility
  • To provide an opportunity for participants to build a national network of colleagues

Participants present their projects to their peers in the spring of the following year (either in-person or via videoconference). Their peers evaluate the projects and vote for the winners.
