Free Resource: IHI Open School Faculty Guide

There are several approaches to integrating Open School content into training programs, for example: 
Require students to complete the Basic Certificate in Quality and Safety, choose a few of our online courses to teach specific concepts, ​​use Open School learning activities to facilitate discussion and project-based learning.

No matter the approach, when it comes to integrating Open School content into their curricula, faculty and trainers ask for advice and resources around many of the same things. This guide aims to better support all faculty in these efforts.
