INTRODUCTION TO THE
TEACH LEARNING PLATFORM

The new online learning platform TEACH provides a dedicated, specialized training program on the functional analysis of the locomotor system. It is particularly relevant for teachers and students in Medicine, Nursing, Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy.
The TEACH platform consists of 4 major modules:
• Biomechanic foundations of the locomotor system
• Functional evaluation: concept and methodology
• Biomechanics of spine
• Biomechanics of gait
The TEACH platform is launched in an English language version, followed by a German, Polish and Spanish language versions.

The online webinar is to introduce the TEACH online platform and the corresponding Erasmus+ project. A similar webinar will be given on Monday 25th or Tuesday 26th.

The agenda of the webinar is:
1. Welcome and moderation
Prof. Dr. Harm Peters, Charité Berlin, Germany, and Association of Medical Schools in Europe
2. The TEACH project: needs, aims and timeline
Dr. Joanna Bartnicka, Silesian University of Technology, Poland
3. The TEACH platform: content and functionalities
Cristina Herrera Ligero, Instituto de Biomecánica de Valencia, Spain

The webinar will take place via ZOOM. The ZOOM link will be provided following registration.

TEACH  PROJECT: RESULTS OF THE MIDTERM MEETING

On 09.06.2020 a mid-term meeting of the TEACH project (Erasmus + program) took place using the Zoom.us messenger. Current issues related to project tasks were discussed at the meeting. Due to the state of the COVID-19 epidemic in Europe, the project duration has been extended. The new project completion date is April 30, 2020. A new project work schedule was presented at the meeting, as the implementation of some tasks was limited during the epidemic. Therefore, the deadline for submitting the final report of the TEACH project has been changed.

The current tasks implemented in the project are discussed in detail, including the design of the online platform for the pilot version, and the creation of training materials. In addition, future tasks to be carried out by the project consortium were discussed.

The 4th Silesian Science Festival took place in Katowice (Poland). Workshops were organized on the topic „See fatigue and assess its effects – the role of ergonomics in the modern world.” The workshops were enjoyed by those interested, and the young participants particularly appreciated practical exercises on the borderline of cognitive ergonomics. The results of the international TEACH project were presented during the workshop.

STUDENT FEST

When: 01.06.2019                                                              Where:  Zabrze, Poland

STUDENT FEST is a student’s day organized in cooperation with the Silesian University of Technology and the Medical University of Silesia. As part of this event, various popular and scientific events took place. TEACH project was presented during this event through lectures targeted to participants invited from high schools, not only students but also many interested persons.

RESULTS OF THE FIRST STAGE

As part of the first stage of the project work, research and information necessary to create the training material were carried out. Each project partner conducted a survey among the relevant target users in their countries using:

  1. Group focus with external experts to determine the preferences of the target group.
  2. Questionnaires to detect the training needs of potential stakeholders. Questionnaires were disseminated via an open online survey platform.

Thank you to all participants and institutions participating in the research.


We are currently working on developing the curriculum and creating a training platform.

TEACH  PROJECT: RESULTS OF THE MIDTERM MEETING

This week the Midterm meeting of the TEACH project (Erasmus + program) was held, in which the project coordinator, Silesian University of Technology (SUT, Poland), participated together with the Institute of Biomechanics of Valencia (IBV, Spain), Universitat de València (UV, Spain) and the Association of Medical Schools in Europe (AMSE, Germany).

In this meeting they have dealt with issues related to the work done so far, mainly with the organization of discussion groups and the generation of a specific survey, activities aimed at detecting training needs on biomechanical analysis in the university context, specifically in the sanitary branch. In this way, needs and preferences have been identified in relation to the biomechanical training of various teachers from universities throughout Europe, through collaboration with AMSE, SUT and the UV’s School of Medicine.

In addition, during the meeting the structure and content of the training materials to be developed within the framework of the project were exposed. On the other hand, different aspects related to the dissemination of the project, exploitation and quality have been commented.

The Erasmus + TEACH project will provide free access teaching materials for the generation of training activities in biomechanical assessment in medical schools. Currently, biomechanical assessment its used as a complementary test in different fields of medicine: rehabilitation, occupational medicine, assessment of bodily harm or process management, among others, assuming significant savings in health, economic and social resources.

However, this discipline is not usually part of the training curricula in the European Schools of Medicine and university professors do not have experience or teaching materials, so that graduates in Medicine finish their studies without the necessary training to perform and interpret this type of evidence.

Therefore, the goal of TEACH project is that five years after it concludes, the European labour market can have the first promotion of graduates in medicine trained in biomechanical assessment.
