About the ACoRD Project
ACoRD is a project funded by Erasmus Plus Capacity Building in the field of Higher Education (CBHE) and cofunded by Erasmus +Programme of the European Union. It is led by Professor Heather Wharrad and her team from the University of Nottingham, UK.
ACoRD stands for Advancing Co-creation of RLOs (Reusable Learning Objects) to Digitise Healthcare Curriculum.
The partner universities include three universities from Malaysia: University of Malaya (UM), Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) and Taylor's University (TU), one from Norway - University of Stavanger (UiS) and Karolinska Institutet (KI) from Sweden.
The aims of the project are:
- To introduce innovative digital pedagogy methods that will benefit healthcare and biomedical science students in Malaysia
- By sharing existing expertise and training academic staff and technologists in those partner countries about how to develop high quality, peer reviewed multimedia digital tools and resources and integrate them into existing traditional curricula
