The materials in this repository are made available as Open Educational Resources (OER), using a Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike License. Attribution means that anyone may download the material and use it in their training programs, but you must credit the original source (indicate the name of the author, the title of the material and provide a URL link to the material). Share Alike means that you can adapt the materials, but you must credit the original source, indicate that changes have been made and must share the new version of the materials under the same terms as the original. This prevents someone taking your work, making a slight alteration and then claiming all rights to the new version.
In the repository, materials are organized in terms of:
- program-wide resources (such as course curricula); or
- one of nine specific topic areas (e.g. demand, supply, economic evaluation, etc.).
For each topic area, resources are then arranged into:
- Lecture presentations
- Audio-visual material
- Case studies and group exercises
- E-learning materials
- Assessment material
Most of the resources are loaded directly in the repository, but where relevant materials are already contained in another repository, links are provided.
To encourage active engagement by those who use the materials, a comments section is included on the main training materials page. We encourage you to provide feedback on specific material and let others know which material you found particularly helpful and why.
