National HIA Meeting 2012 - Teaching HIA in Universities

OVERVIEW

Participants in this panel session will explore teaching HIA methods at the graduate level from the faculty and student perspectives, and offer methods for engaging learners and community partners. Faculty who teach the four existing courses will provide an overview of their course curricula, techniques for selecting an appropriate HIA for experiential learning and methods for developing relationships with local decision-makers. Students who took two of these courses will offer feedback on successes and challenges, and whether or not the course objectives met their individual learning goals. This session will be valuable for HIA professionals interested in exploring how to build capacity in the field, for faculty considering developing a graduate-level HIA course at their school and for students considering taking such a course.
