Learning & teaching
This course will involve input from international experts in the field, but you will also be expected to play an active part in the online activities and discussions. The course is based on a model of adult learning where all students are responsible for actively contributing to the course and drawing on and sharing their depth of knowledge on their own health contexts. It is envisaged that there will be international students within the course who will, no doubt, know more about the domestic situation in their home country than the presenters, whose role will be to provide the tools, insights and concepts that students can apply to their own situation. Furthermore, there may well be domestic and international students who have direct experience in communicable disease prevention and control in developed or developing country settings, and this background will be utilised in tutorials and online discussion forums.
Internal and external students: The format of the course consists of 10 weekly lectures given by communicable disease experts with experience in international settings. These lectures will be delivered online to both internal and external students using Teams. Students will attend an unstructured tutorial session after each lecture. The lectures will be recorded, while the tutorial will not be recorded.
