I have been teaching courses in the Master's in Public Health program in ATSU's School of Health Management [SHM] for over 2 years.
Prior to that I taught for 6 years at 5 other Online Universities. ATSU is by far the best school - because they have students who are professionals and come to class prepared. They take part in discussions and share from their expertise.
Student papers are checked for plagiarism, and by far I have seen fewer cases of copy/paste at ATSU thsn any other college. Why? Because ATSU takes plagiarism seriously, and require that students do their own work.
As a result, students learn and grow in this field.
As an instructor I add much to the curiculum with public health current events - which occur each day from H1NI updates to climate change reports. This keeps students up-to date and informed.
I send out private emails to students 5-10 times a week - to help students stay on track. I provide formative feedback on weekly papers before they are turned for a final grade.
I know my colleagues do the same. We work long hours to inform our students about the best practices in public health.
