This call is intended to identify experiences that produce a dialogue between teaching and learning practices carried out locally and the possibilities of application and transformation from local to global reality.

This book is about teaching and learning health promotion in the health professions undergraduate and postgraduate courses, bearing in mind the Health Promotion approaches, according to WHO and the five strategies of Ottawa Chapter. In addition, chapters on how health promotion is taught in related fields such as architecture, urban planning, and social protection, as well as various areas of public policy and international affairs etc. are welcome.

This book intends to share analyses of what teaching methodologies university lecturers from different countries use in health promotion classes. We want to discuss what competencies in health promotion we seek to develop as results of our teaching-learning processes and to indicate research opportunities in the field of teaching-learning process in health promotion for undergraduate and postgraduate students.

The chapters (6,000 – 7,000 words, up to 50 references) should contain description of the context of the experience and the characteristics of the participants, as well as the professions and courses involved; theories and methodologies used in the teaching-learning process; duration and frequency of activities; forms of assessment; results achieved and challenges faced; analysis that includes the principles, pillars, competencies or approaches to Health Promotion; the potential for applicability of the experience in other contexts.

The proposed book structure includes seven sections, which will be composed by commissioned chapters and chapters selected from the open call:

Section 1. The HP curriculum (the challenge of making HP distinct, explaining its scope and the different ways that curricula are organized).
Section 2. Making it relevant to practice (for nurses, doctors, architects, social workers, health promotion specialists, etc.).
