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!
On Wednesday the 24th of August 2016 a workshop 'working with an learning analytics enhanced portfolio' will be given at the EARLI SIG 1 conference in Munich. The learning analytic tools are developed within the WatchMe project. The workshop is hosted by academics from Utrecht University and Maastricht University and employees from Mateum.
UCSF (University of California, San Francisco), partner within the WATCHME-Project, uses EPASS since July 2016 to support the resident education of Pediatrics. De education is EPA based. On July 12th the stafmember and trainer have visited EPASS in Maastricht. In addition to extensive training in using the system, there were interesting discussions about experiences in working with portfolio systems and future developments in the field of workplace learning.
Since 11 July, 2016 we have a new colleague Ruud Evers to strenghten our team, as a Software developer. His profession is his passion and he is already 20 years active in the ICT industry and has a wide interest in the medical world. The ICT world is quite dynamic which makes for a challenging and varied job. He hopes to contribute to EPASS to ensure preservation and increase customer satisfaction. We wish him the best of luck!
Due to the huge increase of users and features the past period, the infrastructure of EPASS has received a major upgrade on Tuesday July 19, 2016. Together with our new hosting partner TRUE we make sure that EPASS is prepared for future growth and development and we will continue the guaranteed service that you know and can expect from us.
