Proposal Summary:

Our aim is to leverage technology to create a platform to connect public health students across continents, thereby providing novel perspectives and deepening discussions of health equity.

Drawing on qualitative and community- engagement practices, photovoice is an image-elicitation and groups dialogue technique that is used to deepen understanding of issues and concerns. It is unique among image-elicitation techniques in that all the images are participant generated.

The innovative application of technology in this case is the synergistic interaction of various technological platforms to enhance the transformative learning potential of this independent study.
