Richard Skolnik – Author of Global Health 101In April 2014, Unite for Sight asked me to facilitate a workshop on teaching global health at its annual Global Health and Innovation Conference.
The aims of the 90-minute workshop were to exchange ideas about:
- The learning objectives of introductory courses in global health
- The content of an introductory course on global health
- Approaches to teaching global health that encourage student interest and learning
The workshop attracted about 75 people. Almost everyone in the workshop was involved with teaching global health but a few participants were students of global health or former students of global health.
