These guidelines have been developed in the context of the ENhANCE project, funded by the Erasmus+ Programme, and aim at supporting teachers to design innovative online teaching and learning activities in the field of family and community nursing education.
More specifically, they contain indications and methodological recommendations for teachers on how to use and customize the technological tools proposed by the project, as well as how to identify the most adequate teaching and learning methods for the delivery of the activities.
In the project the Guidelines have been conceived as a package to be used along with the "Guidelines supporting the design of local curricula" (D3.2,2), so to drive the design of an entire course from the "European Curriculum for Family and Community Nurses" (D.3.1.2), down to the localized curriculum and then to the specific teachings of the course. In this sense, these Guidelines represent the final step of the design (micro-design level), for teachers to plan, deliver and evaluate innovative online learning activities.
Note that in these Guidelines we will often refer to the Open Online Tool (OOT), an e-learning platform that has been developed in the project and equipped with specific functionalities aimed to support family and community nursing education. The OOT is free and open and any teacher can consider taking it up. In any case, given that it is based on Moodle, many of the indications contained in these Guidelines are valid if you are using Moodle or other similar Learning Management Systems.
Even if conceived in the project framework, the Guidelines have been generalized to support the design of innovative online nursing education in any contexts; so they are also an independent toolkit that can be a reference for any teacher willing to improve online learning provision in online nursing education.
