Through this project we want to upscale the digital skills of teachers and trainers in both the formal and non-formal sector so that they are able to develop qualitative interactive online teaching modules that contribute to a culture of lifelong learning.
The developed modules focus on the theme of dementia in society. By doing so, we want to improve the quality of the existing care training programmes in the formal VET and the training programmes in the nonformal sector and adapt them to the increasing demand from society for quality education on this theme.
With the actual modules that will be developed through the implementation of this project, we are primarily aiming at family caregivers (20 persons) in the home environment of and the caregivers in training (80 persons) for the care institution for people with dementia.
The aim is twofold: on the one hand, to give these target groups a better understanding of the manifestation of dementia so that they can cope better with this condition and be better prepared and, on the other hand, to provide them with insights into the kind of care, guidance and support people with dementia need both in their home environment and in a care facility.
What the teachers/trainers have learned in their training, they will also effectively apply in developing three different high quality interactive online modules that will all be developed around the theme of dementia and evaluated by the end users within the context of this project.
