Motivational Interviewing: Evaluative Experiential Learning for Chatham-Kent Municipality

Please review the student conduct policy and pre-program documents before the program starts.

 Student Conduct Policy

The Health Leadership & Learning Network (HLLN) follows the York University Code of Student Conduct and Responsibilities, as it applies to non-degree and non-credit students. Students are expected to maintain a professional relationship characterized by courtesy and mutual respect.

This includes:

  • The responsibility to behave in a way that does not harm or threaten to harm another person’s physical or mental wellbeing.
  • The responsibility to uphold an atmosphere of civility, honesty, equity and respect for others, thereby valuing the inherent diversity in our community.
  • The responsibility to consider and respect the perspectives and ideas of others, even when the student does not agree with their perspectives or ideas.

Our programs may feature peer-group discussions and feedback, and in some cases, simulation practice. This code is strictly applied at all times. If you have a concern during the program, please direct to the instructor or email us at and the issue will be investigated. HLLN reserves the right to remove any student who violates our conduct policy.

No recording, video or photo taking is allowed at any time in the classroom or during the web conference, including breaks and lunch, due to privacy and intellectual property rights. It is the responsibility of the persons involved to obtain permission.

Accessibility Services

The Health Leadership & Learning Network aims to create a community that is inclusive of all persons and treats all members of the community in an equitable manner. In creating such a community, HLLN will work to provide assistance to our students, alumni, faculty and staff where possible, so that they may share the same level of access to our opportunities, programs, events. In circumstances where assistance is not possible, we will do our best to refer you to alternative resources.

Please contact us at if you require accessibility assistance, before you enroll and start your program. We can work with you to determine if it is within our capabilities to support you on an individual case by case basis.

Technology Requirements

Please make sure that your computer has a working microphone and camera, or an external headset and webcam, as you are required to use audio and video in this course. We recommend that you sign onto the virtual classroom earlier to test out your microphone and camera.

TIP: If your computer does not have a working camera or microphone, we recommend downloading the Zoom app on either your phone or tablet with a camera as a substitute as webcam. You should log in on both your hand-held device and computer at the same time so you can still see the slides clearly but only join the audio from one device.
