    In April 2016, Unite for Sight asked me to facilitate a workshop on teaching global health at its annual Global Health and Innovation Conference. This followed a similar workshop I led in April 2014.

    The aims of the 90-minute workshop were to exchange ideas about:

    • How teachers and students might keep up to date in such a rapidly changing field
    • Some of the key value and content issues in teaching global health
    • How participants might get better access to selected global health “experts”

    In 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.

    Students regularly come to me asking what they need to know to work in Global Health. They also frequently ask what I wish I had known when I was their age (which was almost too long ago to remember, of course)! Let me offer some comments below on “what I would want to know (and not know) if I were you.” Hopefully, this will help answer at least some of the questions that are on students’ minds, as they think about pursuing a career in Global Health.

    Teaching about Health Equity and Equality

    Posted by Cassie Peterson on Jan 31, 2014 10:14:09 AM

    Richard Skolnik – Author of Global Health 101

    Equity and equality issues are central to Global Health and we want all of our students to be able to take an “equity lens” to Global Health concerns. Thus, it is critical to introduce equity and equality early in our courses and to reinforce these themes throughout the courses.
