Abstract

This brief paper will discuss innovative approaches to health education teaching and learning. These approaches are the result of an ongoing project "Health Education for the 21st Century" funded by a grant from the Lilly Endowment to the Ruth Lilly Health Education Center and the Indiana University School of Informatics. Over 90,000 students visit the Center annually and attend presentations in six theaters covering a range of core health topics (as identified by the CDC) including nutrition, substance abuse, and developmental issues. Through partnership with the global Internet2 community and Informatics, the project is dealing with issues surrounding health education delivery and assessment, and the use of technology in addressing critical health issues. The paper will discuss the Center's redevelopment of its legacy systems, curriculum enhancement, assessment protocol, digital library asset management, and high speed networking infrastructure
