AIIHPC Educational Fellowship for Online Learning Resources Development
AIIHPC Educational Fellowship for Online Learning Resources Development awards aim to support palliative care professionals, and affiliated staff from within AIIHPC partner organisations, to enhance and expand their knowledge, skills, and expertise in the development of online learning resources suitable for use on The Palliative Hub (view our AIIHPC partner organisations).
Each fellowship will pay for one-to-one guidance and support from members of the AIIHPC team (up to 40 hours per fellow over the course of the fellowship) and the opportunity to network and collaborate with other award recipients in a private network area on the Palliative Hub Learning Platform. Short-term access will also be provided, as needed, to online education development and production tools. The fellowship will guide fellows through the different stages of learning resource development, from early concept storyboarding through to launching and promoting the materials to relevant online audiences.
Suitable projects may include, but are not limited to, creation of the following:
Bite-sized/microlearning online modules based on a single learning objective or goal
Multimedia case vignettes
Online training workshop/seminars to support the dissemination of cutting-edge evidence-based practices in palliative care provision
Question and answer multimedia databases with built-in formative assessment
Applicants are particularly welcomed from applicants interested in developing materials which raise awareness of palliative care as part of a public health approach, recognising the impact of the COVID pandemic on people’s willingness to talk about death, dying, loss and care..
