Teaching and Learning

The Teaching and Learning (T&L) Thematic Working Group (TWG) is organised around ways to improve the teaching and learning of Health Policy and Systems Research (HPSR). This is a period of growth of the field of HPSR, with innovation and new developments in a wide variety of HPSR methods and applications. There is a pressing need to better define the field of HPSR and improve the capabilities of teaching institutions and tutors to teach and apply HPSR, and to keep up with these new developments. There is also an increasing demand for qualified HPSR teachers, trainers and practitioners by governments, public health, clinical and other organisations and stakeholders in health systems.
