He will speak on ‘Students at the HELM. Learners as co-producers’.
The Health E-learning and Media (HELM) team at the University of Nottingham has been developing and releasing open multimedia content for nearly 20 years. The approaches we have developed are aimed at making both the end products, but also, crucially, the development process accessible to all. Consequently many of our resources are co-produced by learners, health practitioners and patients. The result are resources that are highly aligned to learners’ needs.
Here, we will explore the process, the resulting resources and their impact. We will also discuss the lessons learnt for learner-empowerment.
