Education Clearinghouse

The CLIC Education Clearinghouse is a centralized space where the CTSA community can find and share a variety of education and workforce development resources for a broad range of audiences, from the general public to Principal Investigators. Users can select and filter through a number of different areas: learning domains, tags (keywords), target learners, and more. Each entry presents a detailed profile of the resource so that users can efficiently choose a resource that’s right for them. These detailed profiles provide links (and access instructions, if needed) to the resources on the hub or external institution that is hosting the content.
