V. EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITIES
Teaching
In 2009 I co-created and offered Gender and Population Health Research as an advanced graduate course.
In 1991 developed two graduate courses for the Department of Community Health Sciences: Health
Promotion (645.12); and Health Program Planning and Evaluation (659.03) and taught these for a number
of years. These courses are still offered, 645.12 by other faculty and 659.03 by myself (last offered Spring
2013). I also chaired the Family Unit, Human Development, in undergraduate medicine and developed
the Family Violence course. I periodically lecture in other graduate courses and in undergraduate courses
in other faculties, such as, Women's Studies. In 1998, I chaired the committee to develop and deliver a
new course: Introduction to Community Health Sciences, and collaborated with the University of Alberta
in providing 659.03 as a distance education, web-based course. In 2001 I developed and delivered a new
web-based course, Health Promotion with Women that was also offered by the University of Alberta. I
have regularly taught sections of Qualitative Research Methods (659.02) and provided independent study
