As higher education has moved online in response to COVID-19, how have faculty redesigned and delivered courses that emphasize field-based and experiential learning? This webinar will explore emerging models from the field of global health, where students are expected to address public health challenges through community-based learning experiences—even during a global health pandemic. Join the conversation to share practical advice and effective strategies for adapting teaching and learning practices, integrating the crisis into current courses, sustaining community engagement, and anticipating student vulnerabilities.
