This is an original Seminar of the new Spring School of Global Health organized by the Institute of Global Health at the University of Geneva, in collaboration with the Graduate Institute Geneva and the WFAIGH with the strong support of EAGHA. It will gather academics senior and junior scientists (e.g. PhD and Master students), LMIC diplomats (e.g. permanent UN representations from LMICs), and policy makers.

The new Virchow-Villermé Center for Public Health Paris-Berlin will launch a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) next October, 2013 entirely dedicated to public health and global health. It will be hosted by a platform developed in collaboration with Inria (French public institute for research in computer sciences), Sorbonne Paris Cité and Charité-Universitätsmedizin Berlin.
We are engaging in a large open consultation using the Delphi method amongst the wider international public health community in order to help us understand what your needs and expectations are when using these new innovative tools for massive distance education, i.e. MOOC, in order to obtain a concerted road map for the future development of the MOOC. Your input will be of great value in helping us design the MOOC. Please go to http://shiva.univ-paris5.fr/index.php?sid=68891&lang=en to answer this 40-item online questionnaire before July 21st, 2013.
