The main goal of the project is to improve the education of doctors in WBC HEIs with the support of EU HEIs in accordance with societal needs, which is achieved through two specific goals: (1) Enable students to use conceptual, procedural and metacognitive knowledge in order to solve real problems, by implementing a new learning model and (2) Develop the capacity of WBC HEIs to further enhance blended learning through cooperation with EU universities and mutual cooperation.
Project management permeates all activities. The analysis of conditions in WBC HEIs determines the capacities for the implementation of a new learning model using metacognitive problem-based (MCPB) modules. Knowledge transfer of MCPB modules from EU HEIs staff to WBC HEIs staff is being carried out. In the new learning model, teacher ideas are combined with programming and design solutions into MCPB modules, which are then implemented in courses. Based on the analysis of the quality of application of MCPB modules, their upgrade is carried out. WBC HEIs are embracing a new learning model by adopting improved curricula. We are continuously working on strengthening the impact of the project and ensuring the sustainability of the results.
It is expected to have an impact on: Teachers who will conduct the courses (300 people); 5,000 students; WBC HEIs Management (25 people); decision makers (60); Future users – tens of thousands of people; Millions of residents (patients) in the WBC.
We expect the following from the project: Transfer knowledge from EU HEIs to WBC HEIs through 5 trainings of trainers and 12 trainings within WBC HEIs; Created new learning models in WBC HEIS containing MCPB modules, at least 2 advanced courses per WBC HEIs – at least 12 courses in total. The new learning model is becoming an integral part of the WBC HEIs teaching process – improved curricula of at least 12 in 6 WBWC HEIs are being adopted.
