What will learners gain?

I-TEAM By Design is designed to cultivate and optimize interprofessional skills related to empathy, connectivity, emotional intelligence, humility, and self/other awareness.

Learners have the opportunity to develop these skills and strategies through "workouts" in the I-TEAM gym.

CAIPER Training Overview

Course Overview

This highly engaging course keeps learners actively involved (and entertained) through animated modules that include pause activities for reflection and gamified knowledge checks to reinforce key concepts. The course is comprised of four core modules approximately 45 minutes in length. Shorter introductory and concluding modules set the stage and provide additional resources.
