What is the difference between self-learning courses, tutored courses, and open courses?
In the framework of the Permanent Education in Health, all the VCPH ourses seek to develop skills for work on public health in the countries of the region.
Tutored courses require a commitment of 8 to 10 hours per week for course activities. These courses promote learning and collaboration among all participants. In these courses the participants exchange in forums, synchronous meetings and complete individual and group activities. Groups of between 10 to 15 participants are coordinated by a tutor.
Self-learning courses have open access, can be completed at your own pace, independently, and without defined schedules.
Open courses are tutored courses that have already finished. You can access all learning resources and materials.
