The Readings for YSEALI-ENGAGE Course Curriculum
For almost every module, you will see "Required Readings". We have selected a small number of readings for each session that are central to understanding the content of the session. We have put these under “required readings”. YSEALI participants should note that to access articles from The Lancet you will have to register with The Lancet, in case you do not have online access. Once registered, you will be able to sign into The Lancet and access all of its free articles.
We estimate each week to take approximately 2-4 hours to complete the assigned videos, readings, and quizzes required. Given the time commitment, we will release the next module at the beginning of every week. It is important that you finish all the requirements of each module before Monday of each week, as they will not be made available after that time. Your completion in this element of the workshop ensures your certification as a YSEALI- ENGAGE Workshop participant in official standing. Thank you, and we look forward to meeting you in Bandung!
