Open Contents for FCN training (D4.2.1)

This Database of Open Contents has been developed in the context of the ENhANCE project, funded by the Erasmus+ Programme, and targets teachers in the field of family and community nursing (FCN) education. 

It contains a collection of designs of a number of collaborative learning activities for FCNs, along with teaching materials, such as presentations, exercises, and other materials produced and used in the context of the pilot courses run by the project.

The Open Contents are free and available for the public (under CC licenses).
Currently the Database contains a total of 118 items: some of them are in English (and come from the teacher training of the project), others are in English but come from the pilots (i.e. teaching materials, exercises, slides, etc.). These latter ones are also available in Greek, Finnish or Italian, depending on the pilot where they were used.



The Larnaca Declaration on Learning Design



This academic paper has been used as a learning material in the ENhANCE* teacher training path. It states the Larnaca Declaration on Learning Design, which arose from a 2012 meeting of experts in Larnaca, Cyprus who sought to provide a new theoretical foundation for the field of Learning Design, based on a synthesis of research and practice in the field to date. It begins by acknowledging the vast benefits that would arise from wider sharing of effective teaching practices, and it uses an analogy from the history of music notation to identify the need for a representational framework for describing teaching and learning ideas. It provides a range of examples of learning designs and different representational systems to illustrate the need for a “Learning Design Framework” (LD-F). It then acknowledges the wider educational context and its impact on design decisions by educators, and provides a “Learning Design Conceptual Map” (LD-CM) to identify contextual components and their interactions in design decisions. It concludes by discussing the philosophical and practical challenges of identifying and sharing effective teaching and learning ideas under the heading “Learning Design Practice” (LD-P).

*The ENhANCE (EuropeaN curriculum for fAmily aNd Community nurse) project is a European project funded under Erasmus Plus programme. ENhANCE developed a European Curriculum for Family and Community Nurses (FCNs) for VET targeting this professional profile. During its run, the project offered training on collaborative and self-regulated learning for teachers who would teach FCNs. This document is part of the learning material for the teacher training course.
