ARISE Virtual Teaching Programme

Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, all our planned staff exchanges have been put on hold. As a project we have put in place a CPD accredited ARISE Virtual Teaching Programme (VTP) in order to continue face to face teaching. The programme comprises of 8 themes, each of which have lectures designed to relate to the programme work packages. For each lecture CPD points are awarded.

Throughout this pandemic we are still working towards enhancing the skills of all researchers involved in the project, as we continue to share our own learning achievements, educational resources and provide online courses.

We have been privileged to have a range of speakers from across the globe deliver a variety of topics to our exchange researchers who have joined from Kenya, Nigeria, Lebanon as well as the EU, USA & Tanzania. Our virtual teaching programme will continue to act as an interim measure to support our objectives and enhance learning outcomes.

The full VTP held in 2020 is available here.

The Agenda of the VTP 2021 is now available.

Here following you can find the forthcoming lectures and the links to the registration form.

Approximate model for online resource library for ARISE could be a hybrid of the webpages for sickle cell   and the website for HRSA HIV/AIDS Bureau . This might serve as a Library or Toolkit for the education/training activities in Work Packages 2, 4, 5, 7 because some material is core information that is good for educating families, counseling, training CHEW, and even training clinicians.

  1. Content stored online, has keywords or clustered in webpages to allow search for topics and for audiences
    1. PDF text
    2. Pictures and infographics
    3. Videos? Podcasts?
    4. PowerPoint presentations
    5. Clinical guidelines and Model programs for specific clinical scenarios  – these can be presented in different ways but I really like the HIV/AIDS Bureau examples.
      6. Clinician training video
  2. Download modules of materials
