HELP: Healthcare English Language Programme - Feedback wanted

Dear friends, dear colleagues, I would like to introduce you the Erasmus+ project "HELP: Healthcare English Language Programme" The aim of this project is to create a free, printed and web-based English language training programme specially designed for healthcare students and professionals at CEFR levels B1/B2. It is intended for formal and non-formal education and self-study. It will also address practical considerations such as the inter-cultural differences encountered whilst working in healthcare or the medical tourism sector throughout Europe. Piloting underway The HELP project has entered its next stage. Following the Needs Analysis and materials production phases, we are finally working with tangible and practical products. At present, the Consortium Partners are cooperating with selected groups of teachers, students and self-learners in Higher Education, and in the professional environment of healthcare and medical tourism, who are testing the materials both in printed and on-line formats. The project’s online platform is based on the LMS Moodle and offers audio and video support for each module. There are 14 medical modules and 6 on intercultural competence available for pilot testing. The intercultural modules can be used also in other fields of education. You can access to the online platform here: Feedback wanted Modules are available for free, but in return, we are requesting quality feedback. The purpose of the piloting phase is to gather relevant feedback from real users and to learn from their experience. The feedback from piloting participants will be collected with a set of quick and easy on-line questionnaires and will be used to improve the materials, to debug the on-line platform and to fine-tune the modules. The piloting phase ends in December 2016 and your feedback will be analysed by the end of January 2017 by the national project partners and the Irish work package leader in order to finalise the project’s outcomes. We have included the links to the online surveys on the platform. If you need more information don't hesitate to contact us: Thank you for your involvement and support, Your HELP Team
