Week 5: Identify important sources of epidemiological data
The ideas and beliefs underpinning the discussions guide students through engaging dialogues as they
achieve the desired learning outcomes/competencies associated with their course in a manner that
empowers them to organize, integrate, apply and critically appraise their knowledge to their selected field of
practice. The use of discussions provides students with opportunities to contribute level-appropriate
knowledge and experience to the topic in a safe, caring, and fluid environment that models professional and
social interaction. The ebb and flow of a discussion is based upon the composition of student and faculty
interaction in the quest for relevant scholarship. Participation in the discussion generates opportunities for
students to actively engage in the written ideas of others by carefully reading, researching, reflecting, and
responding to the contributions of their peers and course faculty. Discussions foster the development of
members into a community of learners as they share ideas and inquiries, consider perspectives that may be
different from their own, and integrate knowledge from other disciplines
