Excellent perspectives and helpful references; and because its an introductory course it opens up possibilities to utilize the knowledge in different public health related problems.

It should probably have 2 more weeks of detail.
The questions should be less about trying to trick the person with convoluted wording, and more about solving actual problems using models.

Great introduction to Systems Thinking as applied to public health problems and policy-making, with some basic hands-on experience in different modelling techniques.

The course is easy to understand and the lecturer are well read about the subject. It will be very helpful to me in near future working as a public health worker

I enjoyed this course very much. I rate 4/5 because I would liked a broader explanation on how to translate Stock and Flow Diagrams to mathematical models.

It was a nice and informative experience. It was a good introductory to basic concepts and skills which base the way for further reading on the subject.

Great course. I was a bit limited in how much I could learn, since my background is not from public health, but I learnt a lot about systems thinking.

Great course with knowledge that is accessible to those who want to learn about systems thinking, but aren't a part of the public health sector.

Overall a wonderful course, but some course materials are hard to understand, and probably should be explained more thoroughly in plain English.

Muito útil e de ampla aplicação. A falta de vídeos o torna um pouco cansativo, mas vale a pena ir até o final.

A very hands on approach to systems thinking that introduces you to modeling software for real life use.

There was a lot I liked about this course, especially the weeks focusing on background and theory. However, about half the course focused too much on the software that could be used for systems analyses in public health. I would have preferred more of an overview of systems thinking and less diving into the nitty gritty of technology. The other systems course (Systems Science and Obesity) seemed to balance these aspects much better - and moved the technical aspects to labs.

This is a great course if you're looking for a high level introduction and overview into Systems Thinking, with a public health spin. It would have benefited from a deeper dive into case studies. I felt it could have gone much more into detail on the public health aspect, but the overview and explanation on public health systems modeling was helpful.

I had rated the course earlier but would like to amend my statement. By some uncanny chance, I have just managed to pass the final assignment on my fourth try, which means I have passed my course. I still believe my original observations are valid. Thank you.
