Learning outcomes

At the end of the course, trainees will be able to:

  • Explain the flow of pathogen genomic data/information from generation to interpretation in healthcare and public health settings.
  • Design training and communication formats by applying evidence-based learning science methodologies.
  • Identify appropriate training resources for use in training pathogen genomics and surveillance tools.
  • Deliver pathogen genomic data science training to professionals working in genomic epidemiology, surveillance and outbreak investigation.
  • Evaluate the self-developed training and knowledge sharing of pathogen genomic data science.
