This is the first edition of a guide to online and blended learning, produced by the ASPHER Working Group on Innovation and Good Practice in Public Health Education, with 8 case studies from European academic institutions and beyond.
The booklet is introduced by a contribution about functions, competences and performance in education for public health. In the subsequent contributions leading professionals explain e-Iearning and blended learning in education for public health, and problem based learning by distance.
The use of advanced teaching techniques is still a great deficit in Europe as only about 25 of Schools of Public Health make use of them. This limits not only the national outreach but also limits the European relevance globally. The authors hope to contribute closing the gap and to initiate further editions in the same field.
