PBHL 20006: Individual Assessment 1 in Public Health
#Individual Assessment 1
From Week 2 to Week 5, you will be learning about the foundations of participatory research. Prior to attending each week’s tutorial class, you will need to find and analyze one article (can be peer-reviewed e.g. journal article or non-peer-reviewed e.g. news article) related to this week’s topic. The following are examples of where you can access your weekly articles:
- Public Health in your news feed
- Croakey https://www.croakey.org/
- The Prevention Centre https://preventioncentre.org.au/news/
- The Conversation https://theconversation.com/au/topics/public-health-136
- The Guardian https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/health
- CQU Library https://www.cqu.edu.au/student-life/library
For this assessment, you will need to submit five short critiques (300 words each).
- Four critiques will be related directly to the articles you find (i.e., one article for each week starting in Week 2). In addition to explaining your chosen article in relation to the week’s topic, you will compare your article to one of your classmates’ articles as far as meaning.
- The final critique summarizes what the four critiques mean for you as a participatory health researcher.
You need to analyze a reference PRIOR to attending the tutorial class. Your critique is based on the tutorial class discussions. If you do not view the lecture and secure an article prior to attending the tutorial class, you will not be able to participate fully in discussions which may impede your ability to undertake the critique. Please post your Harvard reference for the article, haiku, and your name here:
