INTERNATIONAL WINTER SCHOOL 2021
CHALLENGES IN INTERPROFESSIONAL HEALTH AND SOCIAL SERVICE

 

ZHAW School of Health Professions in Winterthur, Switzerland, is happy to offer you an attractive International Winter School 2021 despite the ongoing corona pandemic. We have adapted the School’s program to the current restrictions and challenges, offering you some of the courses in an online format. This means that you can participate in the Winter School 2021 from the comfort of your home.

 

Aims and topics

Together, Swiss and international students will learn about interprofessional cooperation in the health and social sector. Future health professionals and social workers gain new competences in dealing with complex and challenging interprofessional situations and learn how to efficiently cooperate with each other.

This year students can choose between several courses. Some are in hybrid (onsite and online) and some in online only format. Participants can book one full-time course per week.

All courses are in English, level B1-B2 required.

 

Credits

For the two full time courses students will gain 2 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) subject to 50 – 60 hours of student work. Preparatory assignment, full time attendance and successful end of week assessment are required.

 

Target group

Third year Bachelor students of the health professions of ZHAW, some ZHAW Social Work students and around 150 students from partner institutions of ZHAW School of Health Professions or ZHAW School of Social Work studying Midwifery, Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Health Promotion and Prevention or Social Work.

Courses are primarily aimed at Bachelor level, but Master level students are welcome to participate. Some practical experience is required, at least 2nd year of BSc study.

Inspiring innovation to meet contemporary global public health challenges @ Online
Mar 3 @ 17:00 – 19:00
Inspiring innovation to meet contemporary global public health challenges @ Online

INSPIRING INNOVATION TO MEET CONTEMPORARY GLOBAL PUBLIC HEALTH CHALLENGES

 

As an existing Undergraduate or Postgraduate student of the College of Health, Psychology and Social Care at the University of Derby, a potential new international student, or a student enrolled at an overseas partner University you are all warmly invited to join our free, virtual international mobility challenge event for 2021. All participants will have the chance to win £500 of online shopping vouchers.

During March you have the opportunity to work online within small mixed student teams to network and innovate creative solutions to contemporary challenges.

Teams will be mixed and allocated at the start of the challenge – so you will need to get collaborating straight away!

It will be an opportunity to meet other students on a shared online platform, learn about one another, explore different approaches & cultures, ignite and share ideas, collaborate towards a shared proposed solution, and continue to maintain these new networks in the future.

Within your allocated team you will examine a defined contemporary global public health challenge.

You will ultimately be required to produce and present a short video of your proposed team solution detailing the Why, What, and How. The notional budget for the solution needs to be determined by the team – but you need to be realistic and consider how you would successfully secure suitable funding if after this event you wanted to go ahead and take this solution to actual delivery.

We will have a winning group for this challenge with £500 of online shopping vouchers to be shared amongst the winning team members.

Contact sessions will all take place in UK GMT time:

  • 3 March: 1700-1900
  • 4 March: 1700-1900
  • 10 March: 1700-1900
  • 11 March: 1700 -1900
  • 17 March: 1700-1900
  • 18 March: 1700-1900

You must be prepared to attend ALL of these online sessions as they are primarily opportunities for you to meet with your team and work on your proposed solution together.

The event will be supported by guidance from academics with a wide range of experience in public health initiatives and interventions from within the United Kingdom and around the globe. Although please note this is not a taught challenge, it is student-led and your own group will be coming up with the solutions!

For any additional queries before the event or if you need to cancel a reserved place, please contact Guy Collins (Senior Lecturer/College International Academic Lead).

WEBINAR 2

 

Title
Supporting students for meaningful online learning


Description
Online teaching has increased enormously lately because of COVID-19 and its effect on education. Being able to study and work online is becoming more and more a way of working in all fields. In health care as well as in social work it is commonly used eg. in mental health and for distance rehabilitation. Being able to use tools which enables communication from a distance is essential for future experts.

 
Lately there has been a lot of information about students being tired and bored of studying online. Some might say this is because of lack of communication, some because of teachers not having enough skills to facilitate meaningful learning online or because of other reasons. This webinar will be a practical session to learn and share practices on how to engage students for meaningful online learning.
Keywords: online learning, student engagement, learning community, visualization

Mar 22 @ 00:00 – Mar 26 @ 00:00
POSTPONED TO 2022 COHEHRE Student Conference (DiSI) @ Hogeschool Rotterdam

The COHEHRE Council, in consultance with the Conference Host Rotterdam University of Applied sciences, have decided to postpone the yearly COHEHRE Conference to March 2022 due to the uncertainty Covid-19 has brought on. The exact days of the conference will be communicated in due course.

This postponement was not an easy decision to make but the best one seeing the circumstances we are living in at the moment.

We are still striving to maximise your membership and will be organising alternative activities. Apart from the monthly free webinars we are foreseeing, we will organise an exciting programme for students and extra focused webinars with a particular interest in our 3 branches.

Stay tuned for more news on our student and staff conference alternatives!

 

Diversity and Social Inclusion (DiSI) is a program of study aimed at enhancing awareness of different kinds of social inequalities rooted in many different ways of diversity in our contemporary societies, including those that especially occur in a super-diverse environment.

It will support the development of core competences in future educators, health care professionals and social workers with the help of an already piloted interdisciplinary model (ICIC) based on blended learning approach.
This model could improve the sensibility to differences in cultural, socio-economic and health status, and the unequal distribution of social resources.

The organization of the course consists of two modules. The expected outcomes of a preparatory assignment (module 1) based on distance learning will result in a 5-day intensive program (module 2) with activities taking place in a multi-professional and multicultural context in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

The student conference will be hosted by Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences.

Nature and Adventure
Promoting Well-being 

Description
Urbanization is emerging as one of the most important global health issues of the 21st century, with cities becoming epicenters for chronic, non-communicable physical and mental health conditions. There is growing recognition of the crucial rol of forests and other green spaces adressing this public health care challenge, with over 40 years of research showing that experiences of nature are linked to a remarkable breadth of positive health outcomes: improved physical health and mental well-being, greater social well-being and promotion of positive health behavior. 

Still too often we don’t recognize the effect of nature and evironment on us. When working with clients we should be able to support them to manage everyday activities in their natural environment. This course will teach a mindset of using nature with our clients and to find out more about our own relation towards the environment and life that surrounds us. Making us realise the importance of environments and meaningful experiences for our clients and use them as a part of our work as health and social care professional.
