Kraj HIPON edukacijskog projekta?

By | Arhiva | No Comments

Glavna ideja HIPON projekta je praćenje mješovitih puteva učenja upotrebljavajući najbolje od ICT sustava (e-module, online igre, virtualni portfolio, histo-book) u kombinaciji sa velikim iskustvom osoba koje razvijaju sadržaj, kako bi proces učenja patologije učinili zanimljivijim i praktičnijim. U potpunosti je orijentiran krajnjim korisnicima; studentima, specijalizantima i patolozima. Nakon 3 godine napornog rada, patolozi, zajedno sa IT stručnjacima te stručnjacima za inovativan dizajn učenja, razvili su autonomnu, dobro strukturiranu, višejezičnu platformu za e-učenje, laganu za upotrebu, pružajući vrijedan alat za učenje studentima, istraživačima i profesionalcima.

U Ateni je od 22.-23. listopada 2015. održana međunarodna konferencija i ICT radionica pod naslovom “Improving Pathology Teaching”. Sve prezentacije bile su izuzetno zanimljive, no osobito važne i ohrabrujuće za konzorcij projekta bile su prezentacije studenata koji su upotrebljavali/testirali HIPON platformu; oni su bili jako zadovoljni sadržajem, načinom prezentacije te inovativnim dizajnom. Štoviše, čak su rekli da je HIPON unio svjetlo u mračnu sobu učenja patologije.

Nakon 36 mjeseci bliske suradnje i intenzivnog rada 5 partnerskih institucija iz 5 različitih zemalja i 3 različita područja, te nakon pozitivnih povratnih informacija krajnjih korisnika, zadovoljni smo učinjenim.
U modernom svijetu oko nas, gdje razne barijere niču kao gljive nakon kiše, pokazali smo da je samo jedan način napredovanja i razvoja, a to je zajedničkim radom, upotrebljavajući HIPONovog malog crvenog konja za preskakakivanje svih prepreka te za unaprjeđivanje učenja, razumijevanja i komunikacije.
HIPON projekt je na samom kraju, ali svaki kraj je tek novi početak …

HIPON International Conference & ICT Workshop
“IMPROVING PATHOLOGY TEACHING”
October 22nd – 23rd, 2015
Athens, GREECE
3rd Circular Announcement

This is the 3rd and last Circular Announcement of the International Conference & ICT Workshop “Improving Pathology Teaching”, which will be held in Athens on October 22nd – 23rd, 2015. These two successive events are being organized in the context of the European-funded project entitled “HIPON – ICT e-modules on HistoPathology: a valuable online tool for students, researchers and professionals”. For further information, please visit our web portal (www.hiponproject.eu).

Beyond the theoretical reflection on effective teaching methods, the two-day scientific event will include the educational demonstration of several pathology cases with an emphasis on the reasoning of the diagnostic approach which, moreover, serves as the backbone of HIPON. This event is thus addressed not only to colleagues with educational interests but also to medical students and pathologists, residents or -why not? – qualified professionals.

The purpose of this announcement is double. On the one hand, we intend to inform the public about the selected abstracts which will be orally presented in the forthcoming conference and, on the other hand, announce a significant achievement of HIPON’s educational team; to be more specific, in June 2015, one more HIPON-related research full paper entitled “Acquiring experience in pathology predominantly from what you see not from what you read: the HIPON e learning platform”, and reporting scientific results of HIPON project, was successfully published in Advances in Medical Education and Practice Journal. We are pleased to announce that after only 12 weeks of publication, the paper views have already exceeded the amount of 1,364! Warm congratulations to all authors!

Final Program
During the last months, a considerable number of abstracts with significant research content were submitted for consideration and possible presentation during the conference. We have to thank all authors for their efforts and support.
However, due to the time limited duration of the 3rd session of October 22nd, under which the oral presentations will take place, only five abstracts were finally selected by the Scientific Committee in order to be presented during the International Conference.

The selected abstracts with their presenting authors are listed below:
 “A Case for Integrated Multimodal-Multidisciplinary Teaching of Anatomy”, E. O. Johnson
 “Evidence-based innovation in medical education: the outstanding results of peer teaching”, E. Poulogiannopoulou
 “Innovation in Practical Teaching in Histopathology – A Students’ and Teachers’ Viewpoint”, J. P. Shrivastava
 “Diagnostic Steps in Approaching Well-differentiated Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma in FNA Material Provided by CT or EUS-guided Technique”, C. Salla
 “The Contribution of Clinicopathological Case Studies in Efficient Pathology Teaching: Students’ Experience from Athens University Faculty of Medicine”, E. Vemmou, I. Nikolakopoulos
 “Humanities in Pathology Teaching: a Session for Meaningful Learning”, E. Baltagianni

All abstracts will be included in the corresponding Abstract Book which will be published and distributed to all participants during the International Conference & ICT Workshop.

The interested parties and participants are invited to be informed about the thematic areas and the scheduled presentations of the double event by visiting the detailed program by clicking here: www.hiponproject.eu/en/conference/2015-06-08-06-21-18/conference

Edukacijski projekt HIPON ušao je u završni krug

By | Arhiva | No Comments

“ICT e-modules on HistoPathology: a valuable online tool for students, researchers and professionals-HIPON” je projekt sufinanciran od strane Programa cjeloživotnog učenja, Agencije za audiovizualno i kulturu, Europske Komisije, čiji koordinator je profesor Andreas C. Lazaris s Medical School of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, a partneri su: Sveučilište u Zagrebu Medicinski fakultet, Hrvatska, Radboud University Medical Centre, Nizozemska, Centre for the Advancement of Research & Development in Educational Technology (CARDET), Cipar, i Ss. Cyril and Methodius University, Faculty of Computer Science and Engineering, Makedonija.

Nakon gotovo 2.5 godine intenzivnog rada, kojem su prethodile jednako intenzivne pripreme za sam projekt, može se reći da imamo autonomnu, dobro strukturiranu, višejezičnu platformu koja je jednostavna za upotrebu, a posebno je usmjerena na histopatologiju te pruža vrijedan nastavni materijal za studente, istraživače i profesionalce.

Od početka siječnja 2015, u svakoj zemlji partnera, 15 odabranih korisnika, različitog stupnja znanja i nastavnog iskustva (studenti, specijalizanti i patolozi koji sudjeluju ili ne sudjeluju u nastavi), testiraju našu platformu, pružajući važne povratne informacije i evaluacije. Na osnovi tako dobivenih podataka naš tim izvodi posljednje popravke i poboljšanja, prije samog kraja projekta.

Šesti sastanak HIPON konzorcija održan je 15. i 16. svibnja 2015, u Skopju. Na njemu su raspravljeni svi predstojeći zadaci i načini provođenja. Posljednjem sastanku HIPON konzorcija prethodit će međunarodna konferencija i radionica o obrazovanju u patologiji, koji će se održati u Ateni, na National and Kapodistrian University, 22. i 23. listopada 2015.

Ponosni smo na predstavljanje našeg projekta na “New Perspectives in Science Education Conference” koja se održala u Firenci, Italija, 20. i 21. svibnja 2015; virtualna prezentacija i članak naslova “HIPON Project: Acquiring Medical Experience through an e-learning Platform. A New Perspective in Pathology Education” bili su odlično prihvaćeni. Osim toga, rad pod naslovom “Acquiring experience in pathology predominantly from what you see, not from what you read: the HIPON e-learning platform” je prihvaćen i u procesu izdavanja u časopisu “Advances in Medical Education and Practice”.

Unatoč već pomalo sjetnim osjećajima zbog ulaska projekta u posljednju fazu, a gledajući unatrag i shvaćajući koliko smo toga zajedno učinili u tako kratkom vremenu, ispunjeni smo zadovoljstvom i ponosom.
