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.



Workplace learning in informal networks



Academic paper on self-regulated learning. 

This paper has been used as a learning material in the ENhANCE* teacher training course and, specifically, as an optional resource accessible in its third module (focusing on self-regulated learning and gamification). The paper argues for the importance of self-regulation and personal learning networks in professional development. 


Learning does not stop when an individual leaves formal education, but becomes increasingly informal, and deeply embedded within other activities such as work. This article describes the challenges of informal learning in knowledge intensive industries, highlighting the important role of personal learning networks. The article argues that knowledge workers must be able to self-regulate their learning and outlines a range of behaviours that are essential to effective learning in informal networks. The article identifies tools that can support these behaviours in the workplace and how they might form a personal work and learning environment.

*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.
