STUDICODE project group presents its online course about dementia for medical students

21/02/2022

The aim of the STUDICODE project (Stepping Up Digital Competence in Dementia Education) is to strengthen the digital teaching competence of lecturers by developing a multimedia online course about dementia. At a meeting on 21 February 2022, the outline of the course was presented to representatives from academia and patient organisations from Southeast Europe. Furthermore, the media formats used in the course were discussed with meeting participants. The course is tailored to the learning needs of medical students at undergraduate level and may also be a useful complement to the teaching environment in the fields of psychology, speech therapy or occupational therapy.

The course is being created by four project partners from the Memory Center in Bratislava, Slovakia, the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia, the Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Romania, and the Technical University of Munich in Germany. The online course is planned to launch at the end of 2022. You can find more information about the project here: https://www.studicode.med.tum.de/en
