О курсе

In this course, we’ll look at the facts and misconceptions around obesity and discuss key physiological and psychological concepts around the brain’s control of appetite and body weight. We’ll consider the biological and environmental pressures that make it easy to gain weight (and hard to lose it!). Most importantly, we'll give you the opportunity to reflect on your own knowledge and assumptions around the subject. We deliver course materials as a mixture of videos, audio-only MOOCcasts, and a selection of short readings. There are short weekly quizzes, a peer-reviewed exercise, and discussion activities on the forum. These will help you prepare for the final project. In it, you are invited to demonstrate your evidence-informed understanding and express how you'll develop it beyond the course. The course features Citizen Science projects. We'll collect data from you (anonymously, of course) and use it to drive participant-led discussions of controversial ideas. In this way, we hope to explore ideas around diet and obesity. These projects also give a taste of how scientific evidence is collected and interpreted by scientists, and give some indication how much there still is to discover and understand....

The course opens the door to a better understanding of obesity, through a simple but evidence-based explanation. It is highly recommended for anyone wishing to learn about obesity without bias.

​It is very informative about the health problems caused by unhealthy eating and explains in an understandable manner. By the end of this course, you are guaranteed to have the right concepts of obesity and a healthy life in your head. It is also very easy to understand, anyone above the age of 14 could do this course! This is definitely a must-learn!

T​his course is very rich in content and the analysis on obesity is quite deep. I learned a lot from this course and got many new insight on obesity from many experts during this course. It's worth to spend some time to take this course. Special thanks to professor John Menzies.

A​ real eye-opener. I had different views on the matter. It certainly cleared up the difficulty we all-even they the scientists-have on grasping the concept and dealing with obesity as a social phenomenon.
