Het Ministerie van Volksgezondheid in Ethiopië heeft een nieuw curriculum voor de studie verloskunde. CINOP, Cordaid en de Universiteit Utrecht helpen Semara University met de implementatie van dit nieuwe curriculum.

Nieuwe vereisten voor het inspelen op regionale behoeften

Dit nieuwe curriculum voegde een aantal vereisten toe, zoals een grotere klinische betrokkenheid en methodologieën zoals CBET (competentiegericht onderwijs en opleiding) en PBL (probleemgestuurd leren), en legt meer nadruk op het aanpakken van regiospecifieke behoeften. Samen met deze partners:

  • is er een implementatiestrategie ontwikkeld,
  • zijn belanghebbenden betrokken bij het delen van ervaringen en best practices met betrekking tot CBET, PBL en klinische betrokkenheid,
  • Daarnaast zijn de hoofdlijnen voor de 10-20% vrije ruimte in het curriculum opgesteld
  • en is er een onderwijs- en organisatiemethodologie gestart om de inhoud van het nieuwe curriculum te implementeren.

We have appreciated the engagement and candor that all participants have contributed to the workshop. The workshop has been proactive in coming to grips with important changes taking place around all Ethiopian universities. We have gained a better self-understanding about the challenge between the national Ministry of Health and local specific conditions.

Benchmark to identify challenges

During the training week three other colleges of Midwifery performed a benchmark to identify challenges, solutions and success factors. Moreover, a reflection on these problems has gained valuable insights. Additionally, the Semara staff have trained their coaching and negotiation skills

  • To guide their students optimally during clinical attachment,
  • To negotiate with stakeholders to create a good learning environment for their students,
  • And to stimulate change management.

We formed a relationship platform and networks with stakeholders experiencing common challenges which hopefully can be utilized for further collaboration, mutual learning for the ultimate quality enhancement and Gender inclusion.

Follow up trainings

Particularly the attendance of the Federal Ministry of Health, JHPIEGO and the other Universities (Debre Makron University, Debre Tabor University and Walele University) has been greatly appreciated. The presentations of the universities were very enlightening and the input given by representatives of the Federal Ministry of Health and JHPIEGO (John Hopkins Programme on Institutional Education) were highly relevant. In the coming year follow up trainings for PBL design will be conducted, and Semara University will start the execution of their curriculum implementation strategy.
