Develop training and facilitation skills in genomics for healthcare and pathogen surveillance. Note that applicants must be primarily based in the UK or Ireland.


This FREE course will provide participants with methods and techniques for training adult learners in analysis of genomics as applied in clinical management and public health. It integrates pedagogical aspects with pathogen genomic analysis, application and interpretation for management and surveillance of infectious disease. Participants will develop deeper knowledge of teaching and facilitation methodologies that they can later apply in their respective fields and work environments. Using a project-based learning approach, participants will be mentored on how to build their own training materials and design their own training. A combination of online training resources and in-person sessions will be followed by ongoing mentorship and network building activities.


Target Audience: We invite applicants from research, healthcare and training professionals who are involved in any aspect of genomics or data science, and who are interested in building their capabilities to effectively share their knowledge and skills with others focused on pathogen genomic analysis, application and interpretation in management of infectious disease. This includes clinical, biomedical, and public health scientists, epidemiologists, bioinformaticians. Applicants may also be involved in genomics technologies and computational biology training programmes, and interested in developing training resources for potential application of pathogen genomics in healthcare and public health.
