K–12 Health Education That Works!

Training

The goal of HealthSmart is to promote the healthy growth and development of youth and give them the knowledge and skills to make healthy choices and establish life-long healthy behaviors.

In the same way the HealthSmart program is grounded in research and best practices, ETR provides a research-based approach to our professional learning processes. This includes the provision of pre-work (to prime participants so they have the background and content information needed to fully engage in the work), skill building, and follow-up implementation support.

ETR offers a variety of training options for HealthSmart users:

HealthSmart 101

  • For new implementers, we offer a Self-Paced Online Orientation to familiarize educators with the HealthSmart platform and research base. Educators with a HealthSmart account can complete the self-paced orientation to learn the basics and become more familiar with the program. (You must be logged into your HealthSmart subscription to access the Online Orientation.)


     
  • For a more in-depth look at HealthSmart, we can provide a 1.5 to 3-hour live virtual training for educators, including a curriculum demonstration and other tools and tips for using HealthSmart.
  • Looking for an in-person option? We can provide a 1- or 2-day in-person training that includes all of the information in the virtual orientation, as well as a deeper dive into HealthSmart content and tailored opportunities for skills practice.
