Award Description: Fostering Global Health Opportunities fro Emory and Its Partners Incorporating state of the art information and communication technologies (ICT) into Framework educational programs and activities is critical if Emory University is to remain among the leaders of global health education and training. The expansion of the Rollins School of Public Health into a new educational building in summer 2010 affords an opportunity to expand and extend global health pedagogy for graduate courses, continuing education, training and international collaborations by hiring an instructional designer to work with faculty and international fellows. The instructional designer, working with faculty, will develop instructional materials for delivery in face-to-face, web-based and CD-ROM/DVD environments. A new case course, built on cases in intervention science in developing countries, will serve as a model for the development of relevant cases directed by international fellows with examples from their home countries. Each of the cases will engage a multidisciplinary perspective and enroll students from across the university. We will develop Global Field Experiences (GFE) that focus on implementation science and students conducting these GFE opportunities around the world will enroll in the initial offering of the new case course. The instructional designer will work with faculty to enhance their existing courses for delivery in an ICT environment that spans the range from very low technology environments to highly sophisticated environments. In addition the enhanced ICT global health courses will be incorporated into the existing Career MPH program, an online distance learning option for the MPH currently available through the RSPH.
Project Description: The project aims are to: -Develop a case course in implementation science that integrates specific evidence-based findings into healthcare policy and practice in developing countries. -Develop instructional materials (both continuing eduation and degree courses) for delivery in web-based and CD-ROM/DVD environments based on current courses taught in Global Health. -Incorporate courses in global health into the current CMPH degree programs with modifications for the current requirement for onsite attendance in Atlanta at the beginning and end of each semester. -Develop Global Field Experience opportunities in implementation sceince in collaboration with returning international fellows. Key to these aims is the hiring of the insturctional designer to work with faculty in the department to develop the course adopt new technologies and suggest new pedagogical methods for more efficient and effective course and content delivery. This position has been posted and we anticipate that our timeline for hiring will be met.
