What is an Active Learning Package?
The Grand Rounds process engages teams in an online event that is both a presentation of a rural health topic and an active learning session. It is “grand” in that the live activity engages rural sites from across the US. It is also “grand” because, even if used asynchronously as an ALP package, Rural PREP Grand Rounds brings an expert from outside your own institution into your teaching rounds setting.
After each live Grand Rounds session, our instructional designers build learning materials around the recordings from the live event that you can use to facilitate an active learning experience at your individual site. We call these learning materials packages “Active Learning Packages”. Our unique facilitator guides outline step-by-step instructions and provide all the learning materials needed to host your own rounds.As a facilitator, you only need to provide the space, projector/video player, and the learners!

Have an idea for a Grand Rounds presentation?
The Rural PREP team is continuously recruiting presenters on a variety of topics relevant to rural health and practice through an open request for proposals. Anyone engaged in rural practice or in rural health professions education— student, faculty, resident, or other— can submit a topic and our instructional design team will work with you to prepare a presentation. You can even nominate a peer or faculty person! If you have an idea for a 12-minute presentation relevant to rural health, fill out this short form on our submission page. Our team will contact you with additional information.
