Professor Anne Söderlund from Mälardalen University in Sweden describe below where we stand in the first work package.

We are also already planning for the following work packages and the next step will be very interesting: to develop scenarios in every partner university. This work will be in the hands of the Nursing School in Coimbra and Professor Antonio Amaral.

Update of the IO 1 Scoping review of the literature

The IO 1 of this project concerns a scoping literature review with a working title “Explore activities, practices and outcomes of digital and/or online teaching, training and learning of practical skills in social and health care higher education”.

The work with this review flows well forward. The literature search has been done and the studies have been selected. All partners have kept well their deadlines in delivering different tasks. The consensus discussions have been extremely fruitful. The last discussion was done during a workshop on a Transnational online meeting in October 2021. Mälardalen University, Sweden hosted this meeting.

We are currently summarizing the results of the scoping review, which include 51 studies, and hoping soon to come to a conclusion, which eventually promote the final product of this project, i.e. guidelines for the digital, and hybrid teaching and learning of practical skills in higher education.
