    rehabilitation training worldwide?

  • Question
  • Will faculty share lectures?
  • Answer
  • Yes. The Global Supercourse in Epidemiology has
    4600 faculty from gt3500 universities from 110
    countries who created a Library of Lectures with
    449 lectures available on the Internet. This is
    being shared worldwide.

The Internet Promotes Sharing
  • The Internet promotes
  • Information sharing
  • Free software
  • In contrast, higher education lectures are rarely
    shared.

5
A Global Faculty Lecture-Share
  • Dr. Laporte proposed that global faculty share
    their slide-based lectures in a web-based
    "library of lectures."
  • He established the Global Supercourse in
    Epidemiology, the Internet and Global Health
    http//www.pitt.edu/super1/ )

An International Success Story
  • 2000 faculty in 110 countries
  • 427 lectures available for worldwide use
  • 30 new lectures each month
  • The site is mirrored in 32 countries
  • There is a server in Beijing

7
Lecture Quality is Important
  • There is appropriate quality assurance
  • On-line reviews by the users
  • Expert authors
  • Lectures are updated and revised

8
Lecture Format
  • PowerPoint with hypertext
  • Graphics are simple for fast transmission
  • Students can go deep into the Internet for more
    information
  • Lectures include links to online resources
  • British Medical Association has put current text
    books online
  • We include an electronic library

9
Lectures Train the Teacher
  • The Library of Lectures consists of exciting
    template lectures by experts in the field.
  • The classroom teacher takes them out for free
    like a library book.
  • We train the teacher rather than direct distance
    teaching of students.

10
The Goal Universal Access
  • Fast Presentation Speed
  • We have developed technologies to speed access to
    lectures world wide
  • Multilingual Versions
  • For global use, the first lecture is in 8
    languages
  • Conquering the Digital Divide
  • We are copying the Supercourse on CDs and
    floppies to reach the 95 of the world not
    connected

    Health and Rehabilitation

    accept lectures from an international audience
