2nd Annual Advanced Training Institute on Health Behavior Theory
June 19-26, 2005
Comments From Past Participants
►What I liked best was…"Being stimulated by
information presented, ideas and questions raised, and most importantly --
discussions/interactions with everyone else…gaining new perspectives and
thoughts about research and methods, theories, etc."
►What I liked best was…"The opportunities
outside of lectures to discuss with peers and instructors the issues raised by
the course and to discuss
►What I liked best was…"Combination of
coursework, casual discussion, and exercises. The number of professors who
stayed the whole week was really
►What I liked best was…"Everything! Very
motivating and informative. It inspires me to `think outside the box` and be
creative. Class exercises/discussions are a great format for learning theory,
especially with constant feedback from the instructors. Overall the course was
incredibly well thought out and organized."
►What I liked best was…"The pace of the
course--there was a fairly nice balance between `class` time,
demonstration/class exercise time, and free time. I also enjoyed hearing from a
variety of faculty."
►What I liked best was…"Quality of talented
faculty, organization of program elements, diversity of participants."
►"The wisdom and generosity of the faculty
were awesome and inspiring. They are a national treasure and I feel privileged
to have been chosen for this institute. My colleague and I will disseminate much
of what we have learned to our mentees and colleagues over the course of the
year. Thank you!"
►"Excellent job by all faculty. It was
obvious that much time and effort went into preparation and planning. Greatly
enjoyed the course. It opened up new and exciting possibilities including the
systematic testing of health behavior theories across subgroups."
►"It was readily apparent that the
instructors invested a tremendous amount of time and energy into this program…It
was, all around, a great program…Thank you."
►"Overall this institute was an amazing
experience in the following areas: new knowledge gained, previous knowledge
reinforced, stimulation of research ideas, networking with other junior faculty
and senior scientists, better understanding of how to logically construct an
intervention grant application."
►"The core instructors -- Drs. Weinsten,
Curbow, Rothman, and Curry -- were excellent role models for persistence in
making an idea a reality, demonstrating competence in their fields, and concern
for integration of materials."
►"I really liked the interactiveness of the
class and the ideas/constructs/theories which bounce around. I give this course
my highest recommendation!"
