ePrePP (Preparation for Professional Practice)
Project Lead: University College Cork
Project Partners: University of Limerick, Institute of Technology Tralee, University College Dublin, Trinity College Dublin, National University of Ireland Galway
ePrePP is a collaborative initiative funded through the National Forum for Teaching and Learning Digital Capacity programme in Ireland to enhance student learning in practical/clinical placements to ease the transition from student to professional. The project is led by a group consisting of medicine, nursing, pharmacy and pedagogy and has applications for not only other health disciplines but also for the wider student body.
This site offers advice on the use of eportfolios based around competency framework, how to insure placement experience is learner-focused and provides a repository of digital resources and links to educational sites that students can trust. There is material and guidance in setting up meaningful shared inter-professional education.
