Didactic content development, Excellence center strengthening and Mobility at the University of Yaoundé I

Dr Rafael Ruiz de Castaneda (PhD) from the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Geneva visited the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Yaoundé I from the 27-29th November 2013. This activity is part of Work Package 4 (Didactic content development) and Work Package 5 (Excellence center strengthening and mobility) of Africa Build. The aim of this visit was to train a group of young physicians and potential researchers in public health in the development of online courses using appropriate scientific practices and online resources and tools. At the end of the three-days training, each student produced a short online lesson including: a short summary/guide based on the review of the literature on the topic, a power point presentation and video presentation (using Dudal). The lessons produced are part of a training activity and further improvements may be required. The local Africa Build team in Cameroon will support these young researchers for the improvement of the lessons and the production of new ones.
