Team Based Learning Workshop: Part 1

Facilitator: Prof. Josie Fraser, Deputy Vice-Chancellor, The Open University, United Kingdom

Facilitator: Prof. Alison Hartley, Associate Dean, University of Bradford, United Kingdom

Team-based learning (TBL) is a highly structured “flipped classroom” teaching method that solves common challenges encountered in healthcare education. What do we all want to achieve? We want enquiring students, who are able to study information independently outside of the classroom, and can then use that information to solve scientific or clinical problems with their colleagues, creatively. We want good engagement, with students showing up in the classroom having done their background reading. TBL as a method really does deliver all this, and while it is a significant change in ways of working and thinking for educators, most of us who have taught using TBL would *never* go back to lectures!

Thursday 9th May 2019, 10.00-11.30

Digital Transformation Session

Facilitator: Dr. Eszter Kovács, Assistant Professor, Semmelweis University, Hungary​

Digital solutions have the potential to radically transform health systems and education by providing better outcomes, service and quality through technopolitical advances. Europe faces increased demand for health services due to ageing populations, rising patient mobility, and a diminishing supply of health workers caused by retirement rates that surpass recruitment rates. However, health professionals’ digital skills often fall short of the required level to use such new technology. This session assesses this issue and aims to find educational solutions to issues related to new technology and digital skills. 

Thursday 9th May 2019, 16:00-17:30

Leadership & Intercultural Education

Facilitator: Mr. Adam Layland, Senior Lecturer in Leadership and Management, Coventry University

Leadership and Intercultural Education for health professionals is at the very top of political and research agendas. Health professionals are dealing with constant changes to both the health systems they work in and the patients they serve. Equipping the health workforce with the skills to deal with this change is of the upmost importance for healthcare educators, researchers and policy makers. Leadership and Intercultural Education are two distinct but interrelated topics that are assisting health professionals adapt to their changing environment.

Workshop: Simulation games are part of the future of public health education

Presenter: Mrs. Irina Wagnerm Senior Health Advisor, The Royal Tropical Institute (KIT)

Presenter: Mohamed Abdelwahab, Junior Health Advisor, The Royal Tropical Institute (KIT)

Games are fun and can bring in parallel learning processes on work environment beside the main learning objectives. Participants can learn and practice on the competencies needed in their professional career. Limited literature suggests that learning outcomes might be similar, but long-term impact might be higher. More courses are now integrating games as part of their curriculums. At The Royal Tropical Institute (KIT) in Amsterdam, we have three games that are used in educational programs.
