Tapping into the technological advances in distance education will enable the school to increase access to students throughout the region. Distance education capabilities will be developed and coordinated in the area of public health across the universities for students unable to attend a campus site. A variety of models will be used, but most distance courses will likely be hybrid, offering both on-line and some face time. Hybrid courses may include:
- On-site course leaders available to provide assistance to students taking an on-line course;
- Some amount of on-site instruction, followed by on-line work;
- Telecast lectures with course leaders on-site
Unless otherwise noted, students enrolled in a hybrid course will be assessed a $50 hybrid course fee.
Course Highlight: Technology Based Health Promotion
Imagine if a mobile phone was all that you needed to improve the health of more than 200 million wireless subscribers in the United States or more around the world. What if you could turn the power of social media into strategies to prevent the spread of STD's. Quickly technology is becoming a powerful tool in public health.
As a Colorado School of Public Health student you can learn how to harness and evaluate the role of technology in health promotion from an international leader in the field, Professor Sheana Bull, PhD.
