BUILDING EXCELLENCE – A REPOSITORY FOR ALL ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH TEACHING AND LEARNING
Background: The practice of environmental health (EH) varies little around the world. International Federation of Environmental Health (IFEH) is looking to develop the definitive syllabus and teaching & learning resource, available to every member University to access, adjust and utilize.
Aim: Academics around the world spend 40-60% of their time designing teaching and learning material/ rubrics/ assessments. The lack of a single repository for such material was identified by the IFEH Faculty Forum in Auckland 2018. The IFEH FF calls upon academics and practitioners across the world to work together in collaboration.
Methods: This paper will show colleagues how EH material can be packaged and uploaded into an accessible repository where it can be accessed by colleagues around the world, adapted to local needs and enhanced before re uploading and making available to colleagues.
Results: In time IFEH FF hope to create a range of definitive teaching resources, assessments and rubrics that enhance the student teaching and learning experience across the world.
Conclusion(s): The author of this paper is the current chair of IFEH FF and calls upon all academics present and around the world to contribute unreservedly and without prejudice to the repository.
