Tell us about your partnerships
Faculty, students and administrators through the Global Citizenship Project at Brookdale Community College in NJ support the GHTI and are aiding in the development of learning modules. A continued partnership will afford the GHTI project with the expertise and support to develop quality educational programming. The GHTI will also develop relationships with health care organizations around the world to promote access to the learning modules and gain financial support for its continued access. The Kigali Health Institute in Rwanda will continue to integrate the GHTI into educational programs.
Are you currently targeting other specific populations, locations, or markets for your innovation? If so, where and why?
In the project's first year, known contacts in health care facilities and training institutes in Rwanda, Kenya, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Ghana, and Nigeria will be contacted to promote its existence and benefits. The project will then be marketed to other nations through established NGOs, government agencies, training institutes and health care facilities. The ultimate goal is to reach all health care professionals in developing nations where on-line training is most needed and valuable.
What type of operating environment and internal organizational factors make your innovation successful?
As a health care educator with over 25 years experience in teaching, curriculum development, on-line instruction, research scholarship, conference lecturing, outcomes assessment and non-profit entrepreneurship, the project manager has the expertise to ensure its success. The project manager has access to many colleagues with expertise in many critical content areas who have volunteered to assist in module development. In addition, prior research and work experience in developing nations provides a strong reference to the educational needs of these health care professionals and the resources available to them to develop learning modules that will be applicable and useful. Using an Internet based learning management system provides open access to professionals anywhere at any time.
