Starting Competences

The student has to have completed at least two years of study in the domain of health care, medicine, health sciences, pharmaceutical science or social work. More specifically the student has to have the following competences when starting this course: Listen actively and consult/confer in a small group Formulate his/her own opinion in a clear and differentiated way Report (in written) an action or a consultation Evaluate the possibillities of intervention from his/her own discipline/profession for a specific pathology or patient Write up a diagnostic profile with inclusion of the ICF-framework Write up a plan for intervention and care from his/her own discipline/profession Formulate working goals, and adjust these on the basis of feedback
If a student has not successfully completed the second year of study, then the responsible tutor/coach of the specific programme evaluates if the student has acquired the necessary entry-level competences. The programme responsibles indicate which courses in the programme have to be completed before entering the course of interdisciplinary and interprofessional teamwork. It is necessary for the student to have clinical experience before or during the course, since practice-based reflection is an essential element in the learning process. Also it is important, although not mandatory, that students already have experienced group assignments, role play, and case-based teaching & learning.

Teaching and Learning Material

Course material of the InterDis Teaching group, involving a workbook (portfolio) and additional documents which are downloadable on the website (www.interdis.be). The workbook costs about 2,50 euros.

Course Content-Related Study Coaching

Students are allocated to an interprofessional team, guided by a teamcoach. Each student also has a coach from his/her own discipline. Students receive feedback and coaching also on an individual basis, according to needs and (self-)assessments.

Teaching Methods

Classroom lectures; Lab sessions; Projects

Evaluation Methods

Evaluation throughout semester. Special conditions: The evaluation is done by coaches on the basis of observation of student activities during the practical sessions, and on the basis of their assignment reports. Activities in team sessions cannot be repeated for the second period of exams; reports can be adjusted/reworked. The assessment id competence-based; the score is not a simple adding up of components. Crucial faults or serious underachievement in one of the learning units can lead to failure on the total course.

Examination Methods

During semester: graded project reports. Second chance: Possible in adapted form
Frequency: During all practicals, and feedback on assignment reports
