The Teaching and Learning Thematic Working Group (TWG) focuses on ways to improve the teaching and learning of health policy and systems research (HPSR) around the world, with an emphasis on applications in low and middle-income countries (LMICs) and disadvantaged populations.
- Provide an interdisciplinary forum for teachers, students, education administrators and those interested in the teaching and learning of HPRS to collaborate and share information about the scope of the field, educational approaches, curriculum development, pedagogical techniques, teaching and learning materials, innovations in teaching and learning, and other capacity-building issues related to the teaching and learning of HPSR.
- Develop and implement a strategy to support Health Systems Global (HSG) membership in the area of teaching and learning HPSR, including the oversight of a session at the Global Symposia on Health Systems Research.
- Provide a platform for knowledge sharing and dissemination on teaching and learning HPSR, using web-based strategies, and by producing special issues of journals on teaching and learning HPSR.
- Promote dissemination and exchange of information, students, and faculty between educational institutions, development organizations and governments in the area of teaching and learning HPSR.
Key activities include hosting webinars, workshops, meetings at global events, regional activities, and the development and hosting of the HPSR training database.
