September 14

Join experts from across the globe representing diverse applications of virtual global health education and information dissemination. In order to scale capacity and access to health education and global health exposure, virtual approaches are increasingly utilized. During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, many in-person activities were halted, requiring innovation in virtual approaches. In the aftermath of travel restrictions, virtual approaches have become much more mainstreamed and acceptable. This webinar will discuss approaches for Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL), simulated public health peer exchanges, virtual health professions education, and Health Information for All (HIFA). Discuss the creative use of cell phone technology, email, information dissemination, virtual interfaces, classroom and applied learning.
