Abstract

This project aims to develop micro-modules for the topics in the Basic Care in Gerontology course offered to Year 1 students in the Gerontology Programme, of which is a special 2-year-articulated Programme for sub-degree graduates. The objectives of the project are: (1) to enhance students’ understanding of the human body system; (2) to apply the knowledge learnt in micro-modules into basic care practice; and (3) to support the flipped-classroom implementation.

The 4 topics selected for developing the micro-modules are: “Basic principles of Human Anatomy”; “Essential Human Physiology: Understanding Blood pressure”; “Physical changes in the aging process” and “Mobility care”. It was believed that using micro-modules would help gerontology students to gain a better understanding of these fundamental concepts hence enhanced their ability to provide mobility care for older-adults. With the support from MMCDG, four micro-modules were produced and published using the Articulate Storyline 360 software package.

Micro-modules produced were uploaded and logged to the LMS of CUHK (Blackboard) under the course. To complement with flipped classroom, students were asked to go through the micro-modules and complete the self-check questions before class. During class time, course teachers revisited the important concepts in the micro-modules and encouraged active learning through in-class activities.

With the innovative use of the micro-modules, it is our hope that the teaching and learning process could be enhanced. In the mean time, the evaluation of users’ experience in using the micro-modules is pending.
