Courses allow users to build knowledge on different topics while going at their own pace and without leaving the house or office. Join researchers and experts like Dr. David Farabee, as well as people with lived experience in the justice and health systems, to take a deep dive into topics that are relevant to people who work in or are impacted by the justice and health systems. These courses can take anywhere from 40 minutes to several hours to complete. Many will include quizzes or other opportunities to test your new knowledge. Start and stop these courses when it fits your schedule. You will receive a certificate when you complete the courses.
The Learning Experiences to Advance Practice (LEAP) program is an innovative platform for learning about conducting research in criminal justice and health settings.
The LEAP program includes the LEAP Learner Track which includes six entry-level courses and resources on critical topics. By teaching about the effective and ethical conduct of research with criminal justice involved populations, we hope to build capacity for this research, which is sorely needed.
JCOIN hosts a number of webinars on topics relevant to the justice and health fields. These educational webinars last approximately 90 minutes and are available shortly after they take place, so you know you are getting up-to-date information.
Quick lessons can typically be finished in under an hour (sometimes much less!) and cover practical topics that are useful to the field.
Dr. Danielle Rudes and Shannon Magnuson from the Center for Advancing Correctional Excellence (ACE!) at George Mason University developed the Aced It! podcast series to bring relevant research articles to a broader audience by putting their content into layperson’s terms sharing the findings and implications in about 15 minutes, perfect for walking your dog or driving to the grocery store.
