This course of study provides core knowledge in evidence-based nutrition with a focus on the role of nutrition in health optimization and disease prevention and management. Students will gain a detailed understanding of the practical application of various nutrients and dietary strategies used in clinical practice. Discussions will also incorporate the three components of evidence-based healthcare (clinical expertise, patient preference, research evidence) into the decision-making and data-analysis process.

International Symposium on Innovative Teaching and Learning website

The symposium is a two-day event focusing on teaching excellence in higher education. Through workshops, presentations, panel discussions and observations, attendees will immerse themselves in learning what it means to be a great collegiate teacher. Also included in this symposium will be a collaboration and sharing of ideas and practices about teaching and learning between professors at Jilin University, other Chinese universities and universities in the U.S.. The peer-reviewed papers and poster presentations will be included in a publication from New Prairie Press.

Those who attend will receive a certificate of participation. It is our goal that after the symposium, participants will return to their colleges and universities and share information that will ultimately make a positive impact on student learning.
