MHA Course Delivery Model 

MHA students keep learning in new ways

Pivot to blended learning

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit in March, the MHA program quickly transitioned to online learning. Our main priority continues to be the safety of our students, staff and faculty, while delivering high-quality teaching and learning.

Moving health care and leadership courses online

As the pandemic continues, the MHA uses practical and strategic approaches to online course delivery.

We are using a balanced approach of synchronous (real-time) and asynchronous (self-paced) activities and interactive video conferencing to ensure students feel connected to their instructors and to each other.

Creating connection and engagement

Ensuring MHA students continue to have meaningful engagement with their peers and faculty is a critical priority for us. We are working hard to optimize MHA students’ learning experience with breakout groups, collaborative online tools and recorded lectures.

COVID-19 has disrupted traditional education models and changed how we teach. By keeping up with best practices in educational technology, instructional skills and use of online platforms, our model is continuously evolving to provide the best education possible.

Innovation and transformation

There are positive changes and innovations happening now in healthcare and education. These may have taken years to achieve if not for the pandemic. Disruptive innovation is creating an evolution in how we deliver health education and transforming how health care professionals learn, teach and leverage technology. It is a challenging and exciting time to be a public health leader and learner.
