View the Module Presentation List
The Global Health Education Consortium initiated this web project with the central objective of improving the quality and efficiency of global health education. We seek to do this by providing high quality modules on a wide variety of topics which students can review either on their own or in instructor-led courses. By being assigned in advance of class session modules can reduce time spent in lectures, thus allowing class time to be used more productively in discussions, review of case studies, problem-solving, etc.
As of May 2010 over 80 draft modules are available and by year's end we expect to post another 20.
The modules have the following characteristics:
To see the modules scroll down the screen, click on the module of choice, and then "Click for full view." To view the module click on the right (to advance) or left pointing arrows or use the Page Down/Up keys. A click on a "Note" button will lead you to supplementary notes to the side, and a click on the "Back" button will return you to the slide.
The GHEC website also plans to introduce a global health "Forum" and "Wiki", two features that will facilitate discussions and collaborations among members to initiate and/or participate in public inquiries and discussions on topics of interest. The wiki site will facilitate the collective creation and editing of relevant contents readily accessible through the web. Users will be able to 'tag' conversations and wiki pages with keywords or topics of choice to link them with other useful sources of information. These two community features can leverage the collective intelligence of the GHEC community in the pursuit of our central objective to improve the quality and efficacy of global health education.
