The University of Michigan is hosting a new “Teach-Out,” Sleep Deprivation: Habits, Solutions, and Strategies, which begins Monday, Oct. 23. The free, online learning experience is open to participants from around the world. You are encouraged to 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, why it is important, and what are bad sleep habits
  • Hear solutions they can start immediately to sleep better for the rest of their lives
  • Understand strategies to help family and friends improve their sleep
  • Learn to advocate for the sleep health of their community

A Teach-Out is a short, online learning experience, focused on a specific current issue. It is interactive and multimodal, and it can be absorbed at the times and places that suit participants best.

Attendees of this Teach-Out will come together over a few days to learn about sleep deprivation and gain skills that are often overlooked in other settings. Discussion boards, self-assessments, and a tool to monitor newly improved sleep habits will be made available. Like all Teach-Outs, this one on sleep deprivation is open to the world, bringing together individuals who have wide-ranging perspectives to engage in respectful and thoughtful conversation.

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