Vaccines: Their Development, Timeline, Implication, and Importance

Developing a vaccine is a complex and lengthy process, especially when it is made against new types of pathogen. In general, vaccines are more thoroughly tested than drugs, as the number of human subjects in vaccine trials is greater.

Class Experience

1. Recognise the definitions and applications of the terms used in the course.
2. The history of vaccination to illustrate the outcomes of vaccine strategies to control infectious diseases.
3. The strategies available for developing a vaccine.
4. Discuss the prospects for developing a vaccine against certain infectious diseases.
I have extensive biomedical expertise and background, and I have worked with antibodies for many years.
This class comes with an in-class assignment, which includes the participant's thoughts regarding certain vaccine-related questions.
I will provide quizzes and short answer questions using applications such as Google forms, so students answer them instantly and we review the answers to the questions in the class.
Each student will be assessed based on the following criteria:
1. The degree of engagement and participation, whether assignment and activities expected were produced and submitted on time.
2. How well they demonstrate they have understood the materials; this can be done, for example, by referencing relevant ideas and concepts, introducing supporting ideas and examples from their personal experience.
3. The “quality” of their engagement: the degree to which they enrich and move the activity forward, through astute analysis, thinking outside the literal confines of the topic.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Learners will not need to use any applications, models, or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools. I will provide PPT or PFD’s of the material that are necessary for the class.
