Aims and objectives
The Aim is also to ensure the dissemination of welfare technologies worldwide. In recent years, the Danish public sector has invested in welfare technology, and export knowledge internationally regarding welfare technology solutions and is now in a strong position as front-runner.
We provide an international study with lessons in English for the students from above mentioned health educations achieving knowledge, skills and competences related to welfare and health technologies. There is focus on technologies, promotion of health related to chronic diseases.
The students are able to achieve below mentioned knowledge, skills and competences participating in the 7rd semester and the elective element, “Welfare Health Technology – solutions promoting health”. These abilities sustain the student’s compliance relating to the learning objects at the 7rd semester in the particular health education.

The aim is that the students obtain basic knowledge about technologies used in healthcare and develop the required skills and competences by discussing and evaluating topics and methods. Furthermore, specific days allocated for self-study is part of the course.
The students will be working with a student’s portfolio/log as a tool for reflections trough the course.
During the elective element, we work with asynchronous, synchronous and collaborative communication learning technologies inclusive the use of video.
The students will work in groups with a self-elected health topic and technology during the first five weeks. All students have to participate in the lessons prepared by students. Each group presents the project with opponents from a second group, which has to prepare questions referring to the subject of the presentation in the end of week 5. The last week each student has to elaborate an abstract related to the group project. The approval is giving by participation at all presentations of the groups, participation in all student lessons and handing in the individual abstract on 3 pages (- max 7200 signs incl. space and a literature list on max. 1 page = totally 4 pages). The individual abstract will be rated according to learning objectives and the 7-scale (BEK nr. 114 af 03/02/2015).
