Title: Facilitating cooperation in interprofessional education using a study activity model- An action research project .

Metropolitan University College has over the years developed interprofessional courses for students from 12 different professions, and since 2013 worked with a nationally used study activity model.
The current model outlines four different types of learning activities. All students at the UCs are introduced to the model in order to heighten their understanding of course design and the expectations of the lecturers to their participation in the courses.
The project conducted a baseline investigation in 2015, exploring 538 students´ and participating lecturers´ evaluation of the current use of the model in interprofessional courses. This baseline and previous evaluations show that there are continuous challenges, concerning both the collaboration between the course lecturers and student satisfaction and participation.


Develop collaborative and didactical knowledge and generate deeper insight into facilitation of interprofessional education (IPE) and interprofessional collaborative practice (IPC). Investigate the current use of the study activity model in interprofessional courses and if the model has a potential as mean of pedagogical development and collaboration.

The study is based on action research and is a mixed method study.
In 2016 the project will gather data in cooperation with lecturers through qualitative methods and a followup on the baseline to further explore the potential of the study activity model as a mean of pedagogical development.
The qualitative data will be processed by current hermeneutical and phenomenological methods.

Outcomes and implications
The outcome of the project should provide deeper insight into facilitating IPE and IPC. The project will show whether the study activity model can be used as a dynamic mutual starting point for lecturers and thus create a basis for implementation strategies. This could facilitate development, organization and execution of interprofessional courses, which will be motivating and engaging for students and lecturers due to quality and design of the courses.
