Global and Community Health

GCH 195 Global and Community Health Communication

Focuses on enabling students to assess and communicate their learning in global and community health (GCH) using an iterative process of writing, review, and website development. The e-portfolio webpages students complete by the end of the course will together comprise their capstone "GCH e-Record" designed to communicate their disciplinary and interdisciplinary learning in their degree to a specific audience beyond the university. These written reflections, in turn, involve meta-learning about how expert knowledge moves between different communities, and about how audience expectations and writing conventions condition communications about health expertise in particular.


Prerequisite(s): GCH 1, and satisfaction of the Entry Level Writing and Composition requirements. Enrollment is restricted to seniors majoring in global and community health.
