Week one’s homework is outlined below or can be found in this attached document.
Each team is allocated another team’s project concept to review.
Please read the project concept and consider the following questions as a team (not individually):
- What are three components of the project concept that are strong, innovative, or particularly interesting to you and why?
- What are three components of the project concept that require strengthening and why?
- What three questions do you have for the project concept authors?
Each team should prepare their answers and be ready to share them as part of a group discussion during the Week 2 group session. You are notrequired to submit a written paper.
All project concepts can be found in the participant handbook. The homework task should take less than one hour to complete.
Reminder: These are project concepts, not full proposals, so your peer review should focus on general concepts and questions, rather than a detailed critique.
As additional reading, you may find it helpful to be aware of the NIH request for application guidance: RFA-HL-20-005: Late-Stage Implementation Research Addressing Hypertension in Low- and Middle-Income Countries: Scaling Up Proven-Effective Interventions (UG3/UH3 Clinical Trial Optional) (nih.gov)
