Information on target groups and sessions

The target-group of the conference is quite mixed. What the participants have in common, is that they are all working in institutions of higher education (universities for science and universities for applied science) regarding the education and training of health, rehabilitation and social care professionals across the European Union. The staff varies from teachers to professors, from international coordinators to course directors and deans. An international and muliti-disciplinary audience; experts in different fields. The students will follow a different program, but they do participate in the key-note sessions. The work of Cohehre focuses on three key areas:

  • Management and leadership
  • Curriculum development
  • Teaching and learning

Within the key-note presentations, workshops and parallel-sessions, the presenters are encouraged to address the following questions:

  • Connected to the subtheme; how could we lead and manage our ‘schools’ in order to connect to this theme and these (subthemes) and what role could teaching staff undertake?
  • What research type and focus is needed connected to this subtheme?
  • Considering your subtheme, what are the key-messages for education and how could this be cooperated into the curricula ?
  • What practitioner should we be producing?

Key-note speaker have 30 minutes for presentations, 10 minutes for questions; the chairman will support you regarding the time-keeping. Parallel sessions are planned for 15 minutes presentations, 5 minutes for questions; the chairman will support you regarding time-keeping. We consider a workshop as a meeting emphasizing on interaction and exchange of information among a smaller number of participants (ca. 30-35 pro workshop). A participatory and informal meeting, less focus on the presentation and more on the possibility to have a dialogue on the subtheme.
