In order to successfully test our prototype tool with a diverse group of stakeholders – from companies through PHE administrators to students – we would like to organise a full day hands-on event on the model of the EduHackathons.

The training proposal of the Eduhack platform, especially the didactic paths of the sections Digital Resources, Teaching and Empowering Learners, meet the same educations goals that CEM wants to promote thanks to the Hospital School platform. The integration of the teacher training program of Eduhack into the CEM platform would offer to the Hospital School teachers in Italy the possibility to train themselves in a professional environment, which is continuously being updated and is academically acknowledged by experts of the digital teaching and learning sector.
