TOP REVIEWS FROM FOUNDATIONS OF PUBLIC HEALTH PRACTICE: THE PUBLIC HEALTH TOOLKIT
A really good grounding in the analysis and evaluation. The final assignment is a really good capstone activity to bring the ideas together.
Coursera always deliver quality teaching and it is a motiv to learn new skills from telented mentors from world premiere institution.
Very good. Would like to see more explanation of the finer details of each segment.
I find it exceptional as it is not very easy or too hard-encouraging learners to think & engage.
