This project aims to increase the skills needed by today’s
social and health care teachers and by today’s care workers in use of welfare
technology in a changing world. Students attending the project and future
students benefiting from the material produced in this project will take their
knowledge and skills to their future work placements. These students will make
the more experienced care workers with their training from behind years
familiar with new technology and digital solutions and encouraging them to venture
testing and learning new skills.
The final product will be a collection of teaching material
in use of welfare technology, which will be highly beneficial to all education
providers in social and health care, as welfare technology must and will show
in the curricula worldwide in the future.
The Well-Tech week in Zwolle entailed a full week of
workshops, inspiration sessions and company visits (i.e. nursing homes,
hospitals, tech shops) and was the first out of three Learning, Teaching and
Training (LTT) activities that involved students and staff members. Vocational
schools from Finland (Tempereen Kaupunki and Tempereen Ammattikorkeakoulu Oy),
Estonia (Tartu Tervishoiu Korgkool) and the Netherlands (Deltion College and
ROC Summa College) participate in this project.
At the closing day of the first Well-Tech week, students and
teachers involved in the project were present, but also other welfare students
and teachers from other studies and colleges. In this seminar presentations
were given from: a research centre of higher education (Windesheim), vocational
education research group (ROC Nijmegen and Rijn IJssel), Icare (nursing
organisation) and a teacher VET from technical sector of Deltion College. Also
the students presented their experiences from the Well-Tech week in Zwolle via
a movie and/or live presentation. The teams consisted of students from the
