ALCOHOL, TOBACCO AND OTHER DRUG
This online Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drug (ATOD) Education course is offered as one of a series of courses by the Vermont Higher Education Collaborative toward health education endorsement.
This is an online course with asynchronous learning design.
Students taking the course for credit and successfully complete the course will receive 1 graduate credit through Union Institute and University.
It is widely recognized that problems related to drug use, misuse, and abuse pervade our society at all levels. While use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs (ATOD) can have a profound effect on many important aspects of an individual’s life, including mental, emotional, social, physical, and spiritual health and success in school and/or work, very few people have had any direct education about factors related to drug use. Education at the school and community level is critical to reducing problems that arise from ATOD use.
This course is offered so that teachers and health and guidance personnel have a sufficient level of professional development to enable them to competently teach or provide other services required in the school’s alcohol and drug abuse prevention education program. Participants apply the course teachings in a practical personal, school, or community-based project.
Instructional methods include review of research based literature, small and large-group discussion, audiovisual and other media, student and community presentations and assessment.
The ATOD course begins the evening of January 8, 2017 with a virtual orientation meeting and the final paper is due March 1, 2017.
Cost to take the course for 1 graduate credit - $550.00
