Presented by: Assoc. Prof. Simon Reid and Dr Kathryn Greenwood, School of Public Health, UQ

Assoc. Prof. Simon Reid has an interest in zoonotic diseases and co-convenes the One Health Special Interest Group of the Public Health Association of Australia. He runs a successful postgraduate short course in One Health at UQ.

Dr Kathryn Greenwood has a PhD in drug design and development, and a biomedical research career in studying viruses, the immune system and cancer. She will complete a Master of Epidemiology in 2018.

This seminar discusses the development of case-based learning materials and presents an opportunity to input into their design and use. We now have two concurrent T&L projects that aim to create case study resources for use in our post- and under-graduate courses.

The first project is funded through the UQ Student Strategy and involves the creation of case studies based on principles published by Harvard. Kathryn Greenwood will present her ideas for the topics, content and structure of these case studies, likely available for use in 2019.

The second project is a collaboration with Carl Smith at the UQ Business School. It will fund the development of a digital platform for systems models that can be used as simulations of public health cases/issues. The goal is to challenge students to explore and intervene in complex problems using simulations, similarly to the way medical educators use simulated patients and environments to help students learn to manage patients and emergency situations. The mock-up of the model viewer will be demonstrated.
