In-person workshop for 2023
We are excited to invite participants back to campus for the 2023 Teach Global Health Summer Institute!
Individuals who are unable to attend in-person will be able to attend some key sessions virtually at a reduced registration rate. We are excited to be able to bring people together to collaborate and strengthen their global health courses and programs and to learn and share with our community of educators.
The Summer Institute allows participants to spend time dedicated towards their specific project - whether developing a new course, revising or adding a module to an existing course, integrating experiential programming into a course or program, conducting a program self-study, integrating global health into a disciplinary program, starting a fully new program, or other initiative.
Each Summer Institute is unique. We bring national and global experts to engage participants in current topical areas that may complement or enhance their project. Past institutes have focused on decolonization of global health, course and program assessment, integrating experiential learning into programs, and developing a community of global health educators. Many participants have attended all of our programs.
