PreventConnect E-learning

Learn.PreventConnect.org is an extension of PreventConnect‘s work to grow and support a national community of practice for the prevention of sexual and domestic violence. The popularity of our web conferences, eLearning units, podcasts, email groups and other online offerings has shown us just how much you value both easily accessible learning tools as well as opportunities to interact with fellow prevention practitioners. This project uses the Moodle learning management system to create a central learning “hub” for prevention practitioners that offers the information and interaction you seek, accessible at your convenience. With this project, your learning isn’t confined to a particular day or time and you can discuss what you learn with prevention practitioners from anywhere.

Check back often for updates to learn.preventconnect.org. Our latest updates include three new courses: Introduction to Sexual Health, Coalition Building and Turf Management, and Collaboration.  As part of the PreventConnect community, you are not only part of a dynamic and growing national community of practice, but you also have the opportunity to participate in a national community of learning.

Prevention education: “My Masculinity Helps”

My Masculinity HelpsThis post from PreventConnect highlights an interview done by PreventConnect’s David Lee with Monika Johnson Hostler, Executive Director of the North Carolina Coalition Against Sexual Assault, about the new film, My Masculinity Helps.  As the two discussed, the film can be used as a tool to engage African American men and boys in examining gender roles, masculinity, and power; identify men and boys’ roles and responsibilities in the prevention of rape and sexual assault; and support men and boys to be educators, advocates, and activists for the prevention of sexual violence.  Now, the filmmakers have just released a facilitation guide to assist in efforts to use the movie to create social change.  Learn more about the film and access the guide on mymasculinityhelps.com.
