Shaping Teaching and Learning to Address a Global Health Crisis: COVID-19 and Global Health
May 1, 2020
As higher education moved online in response to COVID-19, how did faculty redesign and deliver courses that emphasize field-based and experiential learning? This webinar explored 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. Practical advice and effective strategies for adapting teaching and learning practices, integrating the crisis into current courses, sustaining community engagement, and anticipating student vulnerabilities were discussed.
