4 M-CARE: The M-CARE training content

431 views

Published on

On 1 December 2015, the final M-CARE conference was organised in Brussels, Belgium at VLEVA premises. The event “Caring for people with disabilities and older people: challenges, opportunities and (mobile/online) training solutions” focussed on the importance of good quality personal caregiving (PCG) for people with disabilities and older people. Focus was on caring in a broader perspective, and how M-CARE’s (mobile/online) training solutions can contribute to successful PCGs.

  2. 2. Curriculum and Modules 539913-LLP-1-2013-1-TR-LEONARDO-LMP
  3. 3. 539913-LLP-1-2013-1-TR-LEONARDO-LMP Summary • Curriculum – What is a Curriculum – Aims of this Curriculum – Target Groups for this Curriculum – EQF and ECVET – Format of the Curriculum – Methods to teach and to learn – Steps of M-Care training – Role of VET-providers and nursery schools - facilitators – Core idea of M-Care: Mobile learning – The Challenge • Modules – General survey – Modules 1-14 • Contents, Aims – Examples for Structure and Modules • Module 8: Hygiene, Module 12: Mobility in people with Disabilities and older people
  4. 4. 539913-LLP-1-2013-1-TR-LEONARDO-LMP Curriculum What is a Curriculum • The term curriculum refers to lessons and content taught in a school or in a specific course or program. Curriculum typically refers to the knowledge and skills learners are expected to learn, which includes learning standards, learning objectives and learning outcomes as well as methods and advice for learning material to be used. (http://edglossary.org/curriculum/, 30.01.2015) • In accordance with ECVET principles, M-CARE curriculum is a learning outcome driven curriculum.
  5. 5. 539913-LLP-1-2013-1-TR-LEONARDO-LMP Aims of this Curriculum • This curriculum aims to improve the daily work and its performance in personal caregiving for people with disabilities and elderly people. Drafted upon experience of project partners, a survey was launched with more than 600 questionnaires, asking people with disabilities, personal caregivers and stakeholders, what they estimate as the most important items, a personal caregiver PCG has to know, to be able to do, to decide and to be responsible for. In the result an approach was decided following the rules of International Classification of Functioning ICF.
  6. 6. 539913-LLP-1-2013-1-TR-LEONARDO-LMP Target Groups for this Curriculum • The basic idea of M-Care-project is, to enable low-skilled and/or unemployed people to work as a personal caregiver PCG. Caused by that two challenges have to be faced: 1. Low-skilled people need a special approach to learn and to be taught. This means the content has to be prepared in a very simple and very easy comprehensible way. This refers especially to the methods and the mode, information has to be prepared for this teaching process. 2. A good choice of indispensable content has to be found to cover the standards of caregiving for people with disabilities and elderly people, the individual needs of the cared person and the learning objectives and outcomes of a PCG.
  7. 7. 539913-LLP-1-2013-1-TR-LEONARDO-LMP • Another target group are nursing personal or professional caregivers who want to find special information i.e. on technical subject or new assistive technology etc. • The third target group are the cared persons, who want to be sure, that their PCG knows what and how he/she has to act as a responsible caregiver. Target Groups for this Curriculum
  8. 8. 539913-LLP-1-2013-1-TR-LEONARDO-LMP Recognition and Validation – EQF - ECVET • EQF, the European Qualifications Framework is a translation tool that helps communication and comparison between qualifications systems in Europe – 8 common European levels – Description of learning outcomes – Knowledge – Skills – Competences • ECVET, the European Credit system for vocational education and training. It is a European system of accumulation (capitalization) and transfer of credits designed for vocational education and training in Europe. ECVET enables the documentation, validation and recognition of achieved learning outcomes acquired, in both formal VET or in non- formal contexts
  9. 9. 539913-LLP-1-2013-1-TR-LEONARDO-LMP Format of the Curriculum • All content of this curriculum is divided into modules. That means every module can be taken by itself and normally there is no need to have passed another module before. All modules together give a sample of a professional entity, called “Personal Caregiver”. This entity covers the individual needs of persons to be cared following the ICF-rules.
  10. 10. 539913-LLP-1-2013-1-TR-LEONARDO-LMP Format of the Curriculum This curriculum contains the content to learn and to teach for personal caregivers PCGs for people with disabilities and elderly people to do their jobs correctly and in an emphatic and appropriate way to their clients. This curriculum contains also learning material and advice for methods how to teach and how to learn.
  11. 11. 539913-LLP-1-2013-1-TR-LEONARDO-LMP • This entity is only in a few of the participating countries approved as an occupation, but it is near to different courses held by VET-providers or nursing institutions to prepare people for their caregiving job. • This curriculum is a way to make very transparent what is held important or even comprehensive to do as personal caregiver, with deep respect to the cared person. • For each module an assessment will be prepared so a learner will be able to check, whether the objectives and core points of this module are achieved or not. Format of the Curriculum
  12. 12. 539913-LLP-1-2013-1-TR-LEONARDO-LMP • At the end, when having assessed all modules a certificate will be given by the responsible training institution. This will be a good feedback for the learner and also a help for the cared persons who want to employ a PCG. • Reference to the European Qualifications Framework EQF and to the European Credit System for Vocational Education and Training ECVET and clear description of the competences achieved, help to compare to other occupations, to recognize skills and competence and to point out gaps in knowledge, skills and competence to be filled. Format of the Curriculum
  13. 13. 539913-LLP-1-2013-1-TR-LEONARDO-LMP Methods to teach and to learn • Basically it should be possible to learn most of the content by attending to face-to-face-courses as well as to learn by oneself, whether this is using a course book or using the online mobile and internet based platform and application. • It might be suitable to start the career as a PCG with a basic course where one can learn about the requirements in knowledge and skills and a course in first aid. This should be in form of a guided seminar, be it face-to-face or be it a web-based course.
  14. 14. 539913-LLP-1-2013-1-TR-LEONARDO-LMP • A large part of the prepared content will be prepared for self-learning or blended learning scenarios. They can be read or looked at (videos) and discussed with a tutor or trainer. So a good success of learning will be assured. • In this way, PCGs can achieve a range of knowledge, skills and competences to be able to do a responsible and satisfying job. • Which mode is chosen depends on the interest and the individual goals of the person to become a PCG. Methods to teach and to learn
  15. 15. 539913-LLP-1-2013-1-TR-LEONARDO-LMP M-CARE training consists of following steps (in bold we indicate what technical solution supports each step): • A low skilled jobseeker/nurse/current PCG expresses interest in becoming a PCG or improving his/her skills. – Access the M-Care portal at https://www.pcgcare.eu • Before we allow a person to start a training, we perform a pre-assessment of the competences and the suitability (legal & health checks) of PCG candidate. This includes assessing in what modules the person has experience and expertise. – Online pre-assessment tool (tbd)
  16. 16. 539913-LLP-1-2013-1-TR-LEONARDO-LMP • Once approved, the trainee can start his training, either face to face, a classroom or remotely. – Online training platform with embedded dynamic and core and condensed modules at https://www.pcgcare.eu/learning • When doing the practical training exercises, or while being on the job the (potential) PCG can still access training material anywhere anytime through mobile learning. – Mobile M-Care app, including Assistive Technology support service, enhanced with an embedded gaming element
  17. 17. 539913-LLP-1-2013-1-TR-LEONARDO-LMP • (Potential) PCGs share experiences and good practices, together with persons with a disability via dedicated for a, linked to the different curriculum modules. – M-Care portal community at https://www.pcgcare.eu
  18. 18. 539913-LLP-1-2013-1-TR-LEONARDO-LMP
  19. 19. 539913-LLP-1-2013-1-TR-LEONARDO-LMP Role of VET-providers and nursery schools • VET-providers and nursery schools may benefit from the PCG curriculum by organising courses and support for seminar and online-learning. Especially online learning enables training providers to offer courses independently from space and time. • The other role, VET-providers and nursery schools can take is to create assessment situations for to discover and to recognize knowledge, skills and competence already achieved – to fulfil the important requirement for recognition of prior learning.
  20. 20. 539913-LLP-1-2013-1-TR-LEONARDO-LMP Assessment – Learning facilitation • VET-providers and nursery schools may organize well prepared assessment tools for to discover and to validate previous learning results • Mobile learning does not work by itself! – set up the course very transparent and clear and problem solving for the users – prepare the target groups for an interesting but also demanding process of immerging into the world of mobile media by using it independently and self-committed for own capacity building
  21. 21. 539913-LLP-1-2013-1-TR-LEONARDO-LMP Core idea of M-Care: Mobile learning • The core idea of M-Care-project is, to make learning content available in small and easy to handle units available on smartphone or tablet. So a PCG but also a cared person will be able to learn about special questions i.e. checklists for special activities, the appropriate use of assistive technology, etc. • The requirement to install this kind of mobile learning is, that the persons aimed at, are capable to make responsible and correct use of it. This can be a challenge for the caregiver, but also an advantage and additional benefit for the cared person who gets access to a “new world of online content”.
  22. 22. 539913-LLP-1-2013-1-TR-LEONARDO-LMP • Pay attention: When using mobile devices as a caregiver, please be sure, that your client knows what you are doing and why you do so. Don’t let arise the impression you do something behind the back of your client! Core idea of M-Care: Mobile learning
  23. 23. 539913-LLP-1-2013-1-TR-LEONARDO-LMP The Challenge • There is still a large challenge to address the mentioned target group with a demanding training in order to become a good PCG. Especially the methods and material to be used has to be found and brought into a mode of easy accessibility and basic understanding. • There are already very good examples in the available modules and there will be more when the platform at www.pcgcare.eu will be active, since everyone will have the opportunity to contribute content to the mobile learning application.
  24. 24. 539913-LLP-1-2013-1-TR-LEONARDO-LMP • A properly and transparent established curriculum, meaningful assessments, well guided mobile learning units and carefully respected European tools as EQF and ECVET are the basis for mobility, flexibility and lifelong learning. • This is an additional opportunity for personal mobility and flexibility for caregivers, • … as well as more opportunity to find a good caregiver. The Challenge

It explains the needs that this material addresses and how can end users benefit from it. • The module also presents the innovative educational approach M-Care provides by making its training curriculum available not only in traditional teaching ways (face-to-face, via text book) but also taking advantage of new technologies, such as a mobile application. Content
