O2 - Curriculum Development

The curriculum for the "Networked Elderly Caregiver" course was developed at the 3rd project meeting. During this work a top-down approach was implemented. Partners agreed on the standard content elements of the course modules. They also shared the view about creating motivating content and applying teaching methods that are most suitable for adult learners.

A blended training approach was chosen, that is an online course with contact hours to ensure maximum possible engagement of learners.

It was agreed that each partner selects specific assisstive technologies locally as a supplement to the core learning content, because local needs and availability of technology differ country by country.
