HHE5147 Research in Health Education B
In this course, students will gain essential hands-on experience with both quantitative and qualitative research methods. They will continue the work they’ve begun in HHE 5200 Research in Health Education A, by continuing the design of a health study, conducting a community needs assessment, and writing an extensive research report that includes a health education curriculum proposal. Whether for their own practice or for a mainstream organization, the health educator needs to be prepared to find, understand, and evaluate public health and medical articles written by experts in the field. They also need to know, through systematic evaluation, whether their programs are having an impact on the target population. This course continues the development of these core health educator skills: research method design, research literature critique, needs assessment, survey design, data analysis, and program evaluation.
