This course provides students with a forum to explore trends in collaborative technologies (e.g., ICT, groupware, social software) used in various domains of health in both research and practice. The course is divided into 3 modules. Each 3-week module focuses on a specific domain of health (e.g., personal health, clinical practice, public health). In each module, we will spend one class session each on (1) guest lecture, (2) journal article presentation by a student, and (3) discussion of research opportunities in the domain of focus and potential venues or local collaborators for such a research project.
