Several medicine educations in Maastricht using the mindmap-based reflection .A student receives large amounts of information about their performances. Keeping overview and actively giving meaning to this information is complicated. During reflection, the information from assessment and feedback needs to be linked meaningfully, to be connected to competencies and relations with previous events have to be made. A mindmap-based e- portfolio stimulates effective use of the rich feedback and assessment information that students receive, stimulates the feedback dialogue with mentors and offers students and mentors an overview that is appreciated.
Since this week, the Farmacy Education, Leids Universitair Medisch Centrum (LUMC), implemented EPASS in the curriculum. The development of the portfolio is successfully completed and customized to the educational plan and specific wishes.
After a successful participation at the AMEE last year, we will be present again this year. The AMEE is Europe’s largest congress in the field of medical educations. This year it is organised in Barcelona from the 28th until the 31th of August 2016. All participants are welcomed to visit us at booth C31 to be informed about latest developments. Over the past six years, many opportunities and features are developed and in the meanwhile more than 30,000 professionals use EPASS in their education. Off course demonstrations can be provided.
We hope to welcome you during the AMEE at booth C31!
