I recently (early April 2022) taught a short course on Mathematical Epidemiology at North-West University in Potchefstroom in South Africa. The course was part of the Mathematical Modeling Mini-Courses (3MC) series organised by Patrick M Tchepmo Djomegni (North-West University) and Mahamat S Daoussa Haggar (University of N’Djamena, Tchad).
Videos were recorded during the event but were re-recorded because of issues that arose during recording; the new videos are part of this YouTube playlist.
The course involved both regular lectures and practicums (tutorial type lectures). The links are to the YouTube videos (see this GitHub repo for the slides, code and further information), which last a total of just over 15 hours.
