Project goals and objectives:
BACE's overall objective is to enable three EECA countries – Georgia, Kazakhstan and Ukraine – to build capacity of their higher education systems in order to integrate Global Health (GH) into their academic programmes. This will be achieved through: the development of technical knowledge among partner HEIs in priority GH topics and GH research methods, capacity building of academic staff in pedagogical and methodological approaches for designing and delivering new curricula, jointly developing new GH courses, and the forging and reinforcement of collaborative links between HEIs and non-academic organisations in Partner Countries and Programme Countries.
The project specific objectives
I
To develop curricula and deliver accredited courses on priority GH topics
II
To develop curricula and deliver accredited courses on GH research methods
III
Establish the EECA Regional Alliance for Global Health.
Activities
21 faculty staff (PFS) from 7 HEIs to attend Teaching Methods and Curriculum Development course
21 PFS join 6 thematic groups to develop 6 GH thematic courses.
6 accredited courses on major GH topics to be developed collaboratively by groups comprising representatives from Partner HEIs and mentors from PC HEIs.
Workshop to be attended by 21 PFS, 6 mentors from PC HEIs and 3 members of EECA Alliance to prepare ‘EECA Regional Global Health Academy’, based on content of thematic courses.
Two 5-day EECA Regional GH Training Academies. Trained PFS to deliver training on the 6 GH topics to Partner HEI staff and invited representatives of the Partner Countries’ PH agencies.
14 PFS from 7 Partner HEIs to attend Teaching Methods course and following workshops.
PFS from partner HEIs to undergo 10-month Research Methods and Curriculum Development course.
PFS from partner HEIs to undergo 10-month Research Methods and Curriculum Development course.
3 accredited GH research methods courses to be developed collaboratively by working groups comprising representatives from Partner HEIs and mentors from PC HEIs.
Workshop and further communication to conceptualise EECA Regional Alliance for Global
Established EECA Regional Alliance for Global Health to serve as an institutional mechanism for regional collaboration on priority GH issues. Three Annual Meetings of the Alliance to be organised in course of the project, attended by the Partner Country PH agencies and non-consortium EECA HEIs.
Expected results
1
Three HEIs in Georgia (TSU. UG and BSU), two HEIs in Ukraine (NaUKMA and TNMU), two HEIs in Kazakhstan (AMU and KazNU) will have integrated 6 thematic GH accredited courses and 3 GH research methods accredited courses into their Masters and PhD level PH curriculum. At least 75 students from Georgia, 40 - from Ukraine, 50 – from Kazakhstan will take the thematic courses; 55 student from Georgia, 30 – from Ukraine, 40 – from Kazakhstan will take the research methods courses over the project period, providing them with essential knowledge and skills to work either within academic or non-academic PH settings or in cooperation with those in the PH field.
2
In order to develop and deliver these new courses, a total of 15 Georgian academic staff, 10 – Ukrainian, 10 – Kazakh will receive training in teaching methods, curriculum development and the development of teaching materials for GH courses. 9 of these individuals from Georgia, 6 – from Ukraine, 6 – from Kazakhstan will also develop the knowledge that is required to teach 2 GH thematic courses (within each HEI each individual will have a deep knowledge of 2 thematic areas). 6 of the individuals from Georgia, 4 – from Ukraine and 4 – from Kazakhstan will develop the knowledge that is required to teach all three GH research methods courses. All of the 15 faculty staff from Georgia, 10 – from Ukraine and 10 – from Kazakhstan will have been coached, mentored and trained such that they are effectively able to teach the new courses.
3
In addition to delivering the new GH thematic courses, the faculty staff that undertake training will also participate in the delivery of two EECA Global Health Academies. Through these academies 18 Georgian HEI staff/students, 12 – Ukrainian, 8 - Kazakh will be trained in the GH topics in addition to up to 12 members of NCDC (Georgia), 12 – PHC (Ukraine), 12 – RCHD (Kazakhstan) staff.
4
The project will also result in the establishment of the EECA Regional Alliance for GH. This Alliance will serve as an institutional mechanism for regional collaboration, knowledge exchange, training and research on priority GH issues. All participant universities will be the Alliance’s founding members. Thirteen HEIs from other EECA countries have already expressed an interest in joining the Alliance and will be invited to join its annual meetings alongside representatives from national PH agencies.
