Overview Hybrid EduWeek

The EUROSPINE Blended Learning Approach

The Hybrid EduWeek consists of a blended learning approach. Acquiring knowledge takes place with lecture videos online. Deepening of learning takes place face to face with case based discussions and hands-on workshops. The Hybrid EduWeek consists of an online and a face to face component.

Online Component

eLearning modules are available before the face to face session. They mirror the modules of the EduWeek but in the form of online video lectures which the participants are required to watch. Each module is subdivided into sessions to make the subject matter more learnable. Each session also contains a knowledge check that must be completed by the participants.

Registration opens: 8 July 2019
Online modules accessible: after 15 October 2019 (only participants who have paid the registration will be given access to the modules).
Deadline to complete the online modules: 24 January 2020

Face to Face Component

Participants are asked to build foundation knowledge for the face to face component with the online pre-module work. This makes it possible to conduct the face to face component faster than the traditional EduWeek.
