A massive open online course (MOOC) on implementation research is being developed by TDR. The value and utility of this type of research will be introduced through case studies to be presented and interpreted by experienced public health researchers, practitioners and academics.
The content being developed will be free to anyone. This is TDR’s first foray into this type of training, building on materials such as the Implementation Research Toolkit. http://www.who.int/tdr/publications/topics/ir-toolkit/en/

MOOCs have the potential to revolutionise TDR’s approach to research training.” […]
