In November, professors from Latin American and Caribbean universities that have disaster distance education programs will join experts in Internet-based training and international organizations that deal extensively in traditional training for disasters to evaluate the appropriateness of existing models and methodologies for distance learning based on the Internet and other information and communication technologies. Work groups will identify priority areas and topics in public health and disasters around which to develop virtual courses. More about this workshop in the next newsletter.
