Lecturer and Coordinator (Inter-Professional Educational Unit), Dr Gerard Filies has built a relationship with the University of Missouri over a number of years. Recently, Prof Arif Ahmed was invited to deliver a lecture on Comparative Health Systems as part of the Primary Health Care module (HDP122). CIECT met with Prof Ahmed in 2018 to discuss the creation of interactive online environments.
On 12 March, 2019 – the lecture was ‘live streamed’; making use of the software, ZOOM. Mr Graham Julies (ICS Department), engaged with Dr Filies to ensure that the lecture could be streamed to a large class of 711 first year students. Hence, the lecture was delivered in 3 venues.
NB: Contact Mr Graham Julies (ICS Department) -with regards to the usage and set-up of ZOOM.
**It should be noted that CIECT collaborated with ICS in 2014, to deliver the first Zoom pilot [Physics & EMS].
- EMS, School of Business and Finance: Live streaming to George region.
