Teach-Out on Sleep Deprivation

The University of Michigan Sleep Disorders Center and Office of Academic Innovation are excited to announce that a new Teach-Out, Sleep Deprivation: Habits, Solutions, and Strategies), will begin on Monday, October 23. This free online event is open to participants around the world. Please consider participating, and share this opportunity with anyone you know who might be sleep deprived!

The Teach-Out will connect you to the University of Michigan in conversation around the epidemic of sleep deprivation. Participants will:

  • Learn how sleep works, why it is important, and what are bad sleep habits
  • Hear solutions you can start immediately to sleep better for the rest of your life
  • Understand strategies to help family and friends improve their sleep
  • Learn to advocate for the sleep health of your community

A Teach-Out is a short online learning experience, focused on a specific current issue. Teach-Outs are interactive and multimodal. They can be absorbed at your leisure, at the times and places that suit you best. Information is conveyed by videos or podcasts of talks, discussions, or interviews. Discussion boards, self-assessment, and self-monitoring of your newly improved sleep habits are all made available in this Teach-Out. Attendees will come together over a few days not only to learn about sleep deprivation, but also to gain skills not often taught in other settings. Like all Teach-Outs, this one on sleep deprivation is open to the world and designed to bring together individuals with wide-ranging perspectives 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 global modern community: how to get a good night’s sleep.
