How it works EU project in Sweden, Italy and Spain Increase the use of Telemedicine in general About Spex One hospital (CoE) acts as a competence resource to a smaller hospital (PoC) The PoC consults the CoE when dealing with difficult cases If the patient is treated at the PoC the doctor from the CoE is also available during the operation

What do the students think? Positive -You get to handle all parts of a project -To deside on your own how to organize the project and what to do -Fun to get to know the other members of the group, to meet new people -Early focus on projectplanning to facilatate future work -Forced to keep on working despite setbacks -More knowledge stick with practical experience Negative -Not what you thought from the beginning -Vague project definitions -Bad communication between County Council and teacher -Hard to get information due to lack of commitment -SPEX is not suitable for this course: nothing to develop -Bad connection between lectures and actual work that was performed
Collaboration with Rose-Hulman Contact: easy to achieve, hard to maintain Schedule meetings Skype, icq, email Det kändes inte alls som att de hade samma instruktioner från deras lärare att en stor del av projektet handlar om att vi ska komma på vad som ska göras. Om deras lärare inte har samma inställning som Mats, så är det ju väldigt svårt att få kommunikationen och sammarbetet att fungera.
Hard to be a teacher when you are a student Give instructions when we ourself had few instructions Demand work effort Find things you could do from US Geography Resources and locations local Time difference Culture
