This summer I helped in organizing a summer school in user centered design and eHealth. The summer school was organized for PhD students and junior researchers in the area, and there were many who applied to the around 35 available positions.
Organizing a summer school was really great fun, and I got to meet a lot of interesting people who do research related to my own eHealth research area. It was also very good to see that the group taking the course became such a well-functioning community of practice during the week, and I am quite sure that they will stay in touch after the summer school has ended. One of the members of the summer school will be visiting my research group for six months as a part of her PhD Education, and for us that will be a great chance to get a new colleague.
My collegue Jonas Mol has written several blog posts about the summer school and all the fantastic lectures. You find his blog posts here:
- Day 1 (Intro, action research,…)
- Day 2 (Patient accessible electronic health records,…)
- Day 3 (Game demoes and workshop,…)
- Day 4 (Soma design, sustainable development,…)
- Day 5 (Project work and lectures)
