ASU and Mayo Clinic collaborate on continuing education series

ASU Continuing and Professional Education, housed within EdPlus at ASU, is collaborating with Mayo Clinic and ASU Alliance for Health Care on a new health and wellness series. The recently launched course, Health and Wellness Series: Mind Body and I, is the first in the series of continuing education courses that’s offered through the partnership.

This series is a powerful example of utilizing the cross talents of Mayo Clinic’s Global Business Solutions’ team and the group from the ASU Center for Mindfulness, Compassion and Resilience, as well as the ASU Continuing and Professional Education team. This collaboration illustrates the combined objective of empowering people through continuing education and lifelong learning. 

EdPlus played a large role in contributing to this series by providing instructional design expertise to bring content to life in new and exciting ways. 

“ASU Continuing and Professional Education was able to work side by side with the Mayo team and the ASU Center for Mindfulness, Compassion and Resilience team to create an exciting and dynamic experience within the online platform,” said Darcy Richardson, director of continuing education for EdPlus.

The Health and Wellness Series: Mind Body and I, which has a robust blend of education, interactive learning objects, articles and readings, and activities to help reinforce the learning materials, contains 4 modules and can be completed in 40 hours. 

“In today’s fast-paced and ever-changing world, individuals are barraged with so many different stimuli. It is easy to get caught up in a never ending cycle that is detrimental to their health and well being. Our goal in developing this series is to help individuals break that cycle and find their own level of wellness, both mentally and physically,” said Richardson.

EdPlus and ASU Continuing and Professional Education hope that this series encourages more people to take action to improve their physical and emotional well being, ultimately leaving a positive impact on the world.

Richardson explains that this program has been developed to uniquely address real-world issues and provides learners with high quality knowledge and activities, which will benefit their quality of life. 

As for future content in this series, EdPlus and Richardson are already on top of it. 

“Continuing and Professional Education will continue to work with the Mayo Global Business group and subject matter experts from around ASU to further develop content in these important areas, as we develop additional courses in the series,” said Richardson.
EdPlus’ exceptional delivery platform and Mayo Clinic’s extensive content library make this partnership a match made in education.
