The ADEA/Colgate/AAL Institute for Allied Health Educators (ADEA/Colgate/AAL IAHE) provides allied health educators with educational methodologies and best practices for teaching. Courses in the ADEA/Colgate/AAL IAHE series are delivered entirely online, to give participants maximum flexibility, convenience and opportunity to learn.

Each course in the ADEA/Colgate/AAL IAHE series is divided into five live, online, evening sessions. Each course is independent of the others, and courses may be taken in any order. Live sessions are recorded and archived.
