Global Health HSP 2210 - page 3

Is anyone taking this course ? I'm going to take this course during Spring 3rd session. I'm taking 2 pre req courses at Cincinnati State (semester version) which are way easy, and I feel like I can... Read More

    Well I just got my grades back from week 2. I rocked it. The class is a lot of work. Since this was the first class I'm sure we are the "test" group. Week 3 is the heaviest. Follow the directions for DB as they may be little different than nursing courses. It is doable!

    How many hours did you put in over a week? What was the hardest part?

    Well honestly writing never comes very easy to me. Plus I'm kinda of a perfectionist. I probably spend 16-20 hrs on it. However, the DB's require 4-5 paragraphs. But in order to meet all the rubric requirements and answer all questions w/supporting material usually takes me 3 pages. There are 2 DB's each week, then 4 responses,to peers w/ more supporting data and a weekly timed test over the material. Really should be a 4 credit hr course.

    I agree with you healthlink97. I spend much more time on this class than any other I have in the past. Very time consuming. I also find it difficult to post to the DBs with only 4-5 paragraphs. I am generally around 3 pages as well. Usually between reading and researching each DB, I would say I spend 8-10 hours on each one.

    It is crazy the amount of work. I enjoy the topics but they really need to whittle it down or make it a full semester class. Have you started the global health report?

    Has anyone taking Global Health started the paper yet? The directions seen easier than the DB's? Any input would be of help, since it is worth a huge portion of our grade
    yes, due date is postponed again until next Sunday. The paper entails the same information as do the discussion boards. My discussion boards also have been very lengthy. This class entails way too much. As it is not enough time in the day.

    Almost finished with the paper. Again, I am having a hard time making it with what seems to be the "minimum". I have >10 references so far and still more to go. I am finding that as I go, the information that I find just keeps getting to be more and more. I do really like the topics but putting 25ish hours a week is way too much. I wish I knew how to scale it back a bit but I am afraid if I do my grades will suffer. 2 more weeks left.

    So now that you are just about done, any words of wisdom in getting through? Organizing material, what can be skipped, what the professor is like, etc??
    Are there tests? Please tell me you didn't hate this class!

    I didn't hate the material. Very interesting. There are weekly quizzes worth 9% of your grade over readings(usually 3 chapters a week). The discussion boards are intense instead of 4-5 paragraphs you end up writing 3-4 Pages a DB and there is one due on Thursday and one due Friday then 4 responses due Sunday. Seems to be inconsistency w/TA's. I have an A and with the extra credit they are offering I likely will do awesome. I put forth 20-25 hrs a week on this class.

    I would tend to agree. Time is a huge investment in this class. I would have to say I commit 25-30 hours per week. The DB assignments are not simple 5 paragraph explanations. They are in fact, lengthy 2-3 page papers, often with 8-10 references. The material is interesting and the readings are not difficult. I too, would expect an A in the class, but I feel like I certainly put in a lot of work for that A. It seems as though there has been a dramatic number of people who were doing poorly, so the instructor added a bonus test at the end. That should help most people I would imagine. Hopefully, some of the wrinkles will be ironed out for the next session.

    nessa74 i feel like they are extremely hard on grading and no matter if i spend 5 hours or 30 minutes i still get like a 50-60% on the discussion boards the tests are the only thing giving me a halfway descent grade.

    I have never done so poorly on anything tht I have done. I spent 14 hours on one DB, I had 12 references and I got a 65%. I am beside myself. Some of the comments the "facilitator" is writing make no sense to me. She wants me to "add additional information to explain the quotes" but I did add it, and she still took off because it wasn't enough. I have 2 days to read, understand, research, synthesize, and write a paper. Really! This is ridiculous. At this point it looks like I will be lucky to even pass. The thing is, I'm taking my Freshman Comosition class this semester too, and I have a 98% average. I can't be that poor of a writer.
    I really hate this class.
