WEEK 6


Week 6 - Your Reflections



We hope you have completed the previous five weeks of teaching on this short course. This week is an opportunity to focus on you. So you will be given direction to think about what you have learnt so far, and how this relates to your understanding of population health - and more importantly, we want you to think about applying this learning and think about how it relates to some of the things going on around you as part of your work and as part of your home environment. A short course run as a MOOC is not really about learning from the teachers. The best learning will come from 'talking' to other students, sharing your thoughts and reflecting back on the ideas from other students. You can gently challenge other students and think about how something might be different for you and your own local environment. That's why you will be guided to develop and then actively take part in a number of Discussion Boards - notice the word 'discuss'!!! And there is nothing to stop you from setting up other ways to work like this - in the past some students have set up their own Facebook pages to Dr Roger Harrison and Dr Arpana Verma.
