The focus of this international project, partially funded by the EU, is on the implementation of a range of innovative tools for e-learning and on-the-job communication specifically developed for nursing (pre-professionals). Its development involved eight international partners with backgrounds in medicine, academia, and education and training. This project resulted in an online Moodle-based language course, Nursing on the Move.
I was the co-supervisor for the completion of a master’s study, which played an important role in the theoretical justification of the project:
Pretorius, M. 2015. The theoretical justification for the design of a communicative course for nurses: Nurses on the Move, Master’s dissertation, cum laude, University of the Free State.
The above study also contributed to insights into a related project:
