The five kinds of student spent 8 weeks together, learning about interdisciplinary and health. The learning modules are coordinated by a team with members from the five educations.

The interdisciplinary module has an inno-vative didactic design using blended learning as the overarching principle.
Our workshop contributes to the topic:” Innovative and sustainable teaching for health and social care education”. The interdisciplinary learning module contributes at several levels to match future challenges in the health services for students and teachers. The different innovative learning methods also contribute to students' development of individual competencies in relation to particular communication, the technological capabilities and complexity in interdisciplinary cooperation and collaboration in general. The innovative learning methods are extended use of blended learning, much fewer lectures and more student activity through virtual discussions, e-learning and more. A central part of the evaluating test of the module is an innovative camp. During 24 hours the 250 students are guided through an innovative process to form a concept about the health system of the future.
