The University of Michigan is hosting the return of its popular “Teach-Out,” Sleep Deprivation: Habits, Solutions, and Strategies, beginning Monday, March 12. Participants can join the more than 16,000 who have contributed to the conversation, and the return of this highly successful, free online learning experience is open to participants from around the world. Please share this opportunity with patients, family, friends and colleagues!

The Teach-Out will enable participants to learn about the epidemic of sleep deprivation through videos, podcasts, discussions and interviews with faculty experts. Participants will:

  • Learn how sleep works and why it is important
  • Examine common bad sleep habits, and solutions that can be started immediately to sleep better for the rest of their lives
  • Develop strategies to help family and friends improve their sleep
  • Learn to advocate for the sleep health of their communities

A Teach-Out is a short, online learning experience, focused on topics of widespread interest. Available on an accessible, open educational platform, each Teach-Out provides an opportunity for learners to contribute in significant ways by participating in community conversations, through interaction with members of the U-M campus community and diverse global audiences.

Over the course of a couple of weeks, Teach-Out participants will learn why an adequate amount of good-quality sleep is critical to good health and gain skills that are often overlooked in other settings. Components of this Teach-Out include discussion boards, self-assessments, and a tool to monitor newly improved sleep habits.

This event is an opportunity for a diverse audience of learners and a multitude of experts to ask questions of one another and explore new solutions to a pressing challenge for our modern, global community: how to get a good night’s sleep.
