Conference Description :
This course consists of a blended learning programme of two months’ duration including on-line and face to face components. All sections of the programme will be highly interactive and will highlight their practical relevance to the workplace and facilitating improvements within our discipline.
The on-line components will start around 20 March 2018 and consist of an introductory 90-minute tutorial with the participants and teachers followed by on-line exercises and compulsory electronic learning modules to be completed prior to the ESTRO 37 meeting. Live sessions will take place during ESTRO 37 in Barcelona: a full day on 20 April 2018 and two lunch-time meetings on 21-22 April. Responses of participants to a follow-up survey will form the basis of the on-line tutorial a month after ESTRO 37. An on-line community network of participants will be established at the completion of the 2-month programme.
