Teaching Methodology and Innovation in Health
Presentation and members of the MEDIS group
The development of traditional university teaching has been modified by the principles that define the European Higher Education Area (EHEA). The changes promoted by the EHEA eliminate the concept of the professor as a unique, fundamental figure in the transmission of knowledge shared via lectures.
By adapting the Bologna Process, the role of the student increases, requiring new work methods to learn. In order to increase the quality and excellence of both university and professional education, Escola Superior de Ciències de la Salut TecnoCampus (School of health Sciences TecnoCampus, ESCST) has created the GR-Media research group. The group’s specific aim is to develop projects to facilitate and promote the comprehensive development and training of students and health professionals using the most innovative learning methods.
The School of Health Sciences is committed to the application of new technologies, providing the necessary infrastructure for both teaching in the classroom and group learning methodologies (face to face and distance learning), as well as the creation of a leading health training centre based on Simulation. Within the framework presented, the creation of the research group together with the Simulation and Innovation in Health Centre (CSIS) is a reflection of the growth of TecnoCampus in the area and the position of the ESCST as a leading training centre in Maresme.
