CECURE - Computational Epidemiology Curriculum Repository

We are excited to share educational resources that instructors can use in the classroom. All resources will be sorted into the following categories:

  • MODULE: A module should consist of 3 – 6 lessons of related material and can be stand-alone or part of a course. All modules include a module description document with a brief description of the module and a list of lessons, labs, and homework.

  • SMALL EXERCISE: A small exercise is for an individual or small team (or multiple teams) to complete over a few hours. In terms of scope, a small exercise might be likened to a capstone laboratory event in a college course.

  • ONE-DAY (8-HOUR) OR TWO-DAY (16-HOUR) COURSE: One- and two-day courses are intended to be approximately 50% lecture/discussion and 50% hands-on exercises covering a specific computational epidemiology topic.

  • SINGLE HANDS-ON LABORATORY: Hands-on exercise intended as a laboratory event to reinforce a specific concept or concepts, normally as part of a specific computational epidemiology course. Would include a scenario description, detailed instructions for participants, separate instructions for course instructors administering the exercise, as well as a grading rubric.

  • FULL COURSE WITH LABS: Course content to support a full, one semester, 3.0 credit hour (or more) course with syllabus, individual lesson plans, presentation slides, homework, exams, and hands-on labs with necessary documentation. All courses should be broken down in modules so that educators using the content can select them à la carte from various content offerings to build a course or workshop.

  • FULL COURSE (NO LABS): Course content to support a full, one semester, 3.0 credit hour (or more) course with syllabus, individual lesson plans, presentation slides, homework, and exams. All courses should be broken down in modules so that educators using the content can select them à la carte from various content offerings to build a course or workshop.
