As a result of the activities of WP4 we expect the training program for CA HEIs staff and teachers implicated with the new curriculum be carried out.
There will be two important training cornerstones, one which will be centered on the pedagogic and didactic aspects, mainly linked to the utilization of innovative teaching systems to be introduced, and another one centered on the perspective over the contents.
The training centered on pedagogic and didactic aspects will include the incorporation of innovations for the perspective over the contents, which will be focused on the development of professional competences defined on the baseline. Starting from the most consolidated international experiences, new teaching techniques will be introduced and evaluated in the different contexts. In particular, it will be emphasised the use of IT in the teaching process, from the elementary task of creating an effective presentation to the use of virtual reality and to the critical access to the main medical databases available on the net. Specific attention will be devoted to the introduction of innovative teaching techniques such as simulation based training laboratories, Objective Structured clinical Examination, Management Information System training, etc.
More classical training courses will be given to selected young academic staff during stages of 1 month in the European partner Universities, specifically in Clinical Genetics and Bioethics.
As a result of the activities of WP4 we expect to have a group of teachers well exposed and trained in new teaching skills, with all Universities involved in the project linked in a virtual network, sharing not only the same hardware and software, – both for educational and administrative purposes -, but particularly the same attitude and style towards the training of young professionals in the care of children.
