Chapter 9 Strategic pedagogy: pursuing best practices for teaching asynchronous online health economics courses
Restricted access

This chapter employs eight years of experience and research to develop recommended best practices for choosing a textbook, producing course videos, role-playing discussion forums and random block examinations when teaching health economics online asynchronously. Best practice recommendations include picking a textbook that has prebuilt slides, fits the student audience, provides some practice exercises, and has a relatively long shelf life. For video production, I recommend developing a high-quality, short introduction video, and producing as many minimally edited videos as possible. To improve learning and engagement in discussion forums, I suggest a role-playing discussion forum. I also advocate random block examinations with a time constraint and visibility constraint to deter academic dishonesty. The chapter concludes with a final recommendation for other helpful resources such as the Teaching Health Economics Special Interest Group within the International Health Economics Association.
