Education Core


Education Core


Our COIN is providing educational resources through a number of different avenues. We use a hub and spoke model where the research we wish to implement and disseminate serves as the hub and then the methods we use to disseminate/implement are the spokes. Methods highlighted on this page include Twitter, visual abstracts, cyberseminars and, of course, the COIN website.


For instance, follow us on Twitter at @SeaDenCOIN to find out about upcoming cyberseminars our researchers are giving. Or learn about the publications we are constantly putting out. Look and see who we are following and who is following us to find many of researchers also on Twitter. You can find a community of researchers who are truly innovative.

Visual Abstracts

We are also using visual abstracts to make people more familiar with our research publications. See all our rapidly expanding collection.


Health Findings in Focus Podcast

The first episode of the new podcast Health Findings in Focus features an interview with Dr. Heather Gilmartin. It is a great introduction to Relational Coordination. Have a listen:



A slidedoc is a document created using presentation software, where visuals and words unite to illustrate one clear point per page. They're meant to be printed or distributed instead of presented. The result is a medium that can be read more quickly than a document.
