|Blended Learning Modalities||The language and communication materials for nursing used for this course are available in 6 languages and are based on a tested template for medical professionals. They have been developed by native speakers working in education and professional nursing contexts. International nursing students developed video cases (flexible storyboards with voice-over) in an authentic task-based approach based on gamification principles. Scenarios can be studied in class or used in-service as support tools according to preference and relevance to alleviate immediate needs. Before the study programme participants will already engage with the materials online/mobile. During the five-day study programme participants will undergo blended, autonomous and teaching experiences. They will reflect about their own experiences, experiment with different learning routes and routines, discuss the visual input and interactive structure of the scenario story boards, the role of the social network sites as community support and the accreditation potential for nursing, languages and learning.|
