Project Background:

For several years prior to 2016, and starting with just three partners at first, the
institutions mentioned above had run an annual joint online course (ā€œIntercultural Case
Comparison@homeā€), based on peer-assisted learning, in which students from the partner
institutions work together to establish a comparative research report about OT approaches and Health Care provisions concerning specific client groups in their respective countries and discuss an OT-related topic (mostly connected to the European theme of the year).The course proved to be an excellent and flexible model for enhancing studentsā€™ learning and increase their generic, subjectspecific and international competences alike. At the same time, the course was met with interest by other ENOTHE members while the original partnersā€™ group had reached a size not to be exceeded to stay manageable.

1. To share and promote the ICC@home model for the ENOTHE members – ā€œspread the wordā€
2. To develop the model further into ā€œCOPILOTā€ (Cooperative Online Peer-assisted and
Intercultural Learning in Occupational Therapyā€) in order to extend studentsā€™ and institutions opportunities in international learning.
