New Article Published about Using Teaching Philosophy

With colleagues Lei Xu and Beth Chaney, we just published in “The Journal of Health Education Teaching”

Authors: Craig M. Becker, PhD, Lei Xu, PhD, and Beth Chaney, PhD, MCHES
You may access this publication here. You can access the full journal here.
The article is about how to apply the 7C Framework of Challenge, Courage, Competence, Commitment, Connection, Contributions, and Consequences to teaching Health. This 7 C Framework is a general framework for how to create the life desired, I previously discussed this philosophy in this post.

To create a Better Life, it is suggested one could:
  • Accept the Challenge to build a better Life
  • Use Courage to do something new that you believe will make things better
  • Develop Competence so you enhance you capacity to do more 
  • Have a Commitment to work through difficulties
    • See Steve Jobs take on how to be committed below
  • Passion is a high bar, Elizabeth Gilbert suggests to follow your curiosity
  • Create Connections to use your competencies and help other succeed…
“Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.”
– Helen Keller
  • Make Contributions is the  by-product of following the previous C’s
  • Build on Consequences with continuous and never ending improvement
The Journal of Health Education Teaching is a 7.5 year old peer reviewed journal for the promotion of research in health education teaching and preparation of: Health Education Teacher Education, Community Health, Public Health, Online Teaching of Health, College Health, and Personal Health.
Be Well’r,
Craig Becker
