Educational development and consultancy

We offer expertise in the following areas of education in the healthcare sector: curriculum design, course-based education, practical and clinical training, quality assurance, selection procedures and project management and supervision of educational development.

Project management and advice

The Center for Research and Development of Education supports the development and implementation of new curricula by making a project manager or project advisor available, usually for long-term projects (one or more years) requiring both educational expertise and expertise in the fields of process guidance and change processes.

Coaching and advice

The Center for Research and Development of Education

  • provides tailored coaching and advice for the development of courses, programs and curricula. This usually involves guidance in the form of a series of meetings in which clients receive help in designing blueprints for their training courses or programs.
  • provides educational expertise and supervises the process. Implementation is done mainly by the client or the coaches, depending on the client’s wishes.
  • participates regularly in national and international medical education development projects.
