Research output: Contribution to conference without a publisher/journalAbstractCommunication

Abstract

E-LOT relates to the main theme of ENOTHE 2019: Sustainability in OT EDUCATION by focusing on development of new digital educational methods.
• Digital Education and Health
• Living labs

Aim
The aim is to create a digital learning platform within our living lab-apartment to support and encourage student engagement through e-learning.

Method
The educational content on the platform consists of instructive videos, exercises and written directions available on touchscreens located in the living lab. The content allows students to improve their skills and competences without a teacher being present, hereby inspiring student engagement, and study intensity. E-LOT enables independent practice of e.g. person transfer or use of assistive devises by video guidance and additional relevant materials. To ensure sufficient quality the content is produced by trained OT’s. Volunteer students are involved in developing both content and user interface.

Conclusion
The project is ongoing with continuous development and evaluation in order to strengthen the blended learning approach in the OT education program.

Perspective
The content on the platform must be accessible to students in all semesters in autumn 2019. We plan to demonstrate the platform and elaborate on results of the first evaluations at ENOTHE 2019.
