The process of transitioning from face-to-face to distance teaching and learning in post-graduate public health education for health systems development: a guide
The School of Public Health (SOPH) at the University of the Western Cape (UWC) hosted a two-part workshop series in May and October 2015, as part of its ongoing work with sister institutions in Africa and the global South.
The overall aim of the workshops was to explore emerging opportunities for expanding access to, and delivery of, post-graduate training in public health for people working in or managing health services/systems. Various distance-based delivery modes were explored, including web-based and e-learning technologies, with a focus on workplace-based learning and creating authentic learning opportunities for students.
This Guide has emerged from this workshop process as both a record of what was covered, and a practical reference guide and resource for public health educators who are working on the process of transitioning from face-to-face to distance teaching and learning.
