The “Digital Media in Health Communication and Literacy” activity is a fully online programme that aims at bringing together EUGLOH students with different perspectives and skills, to create collaborative digital media based projects that communicate complex concepts in scientific research!

During the intensive 11 week programme participants are immersed in a collaborative setting where they are guided through the process of exploring many different methodologies (e.g. design thinking, lean startup, Agile) with a focus on creating health communication and literacy material for both linear and experiential formats.

Throughout the course, students will be assigned to multidisciplinary teams and have access to speakers and mentors who will provide assistance and help ensure that the teams are well on track to complete the project on time.

Added Value for students

  • stimulate linguistic and communication skills, critical thinking, and teamwork;
  • train resilience and ability to deal with concrete problems while developing viable solutions in a short-time;
  • connect with professionals and institutions gravitating around the EUGLOH ecosystem. Schedule The course encompasses weekly sessions (of 3 hours each) for 10 weeks, plus a final week for presentation of the final projects. The synchronous sessions will take place on Fridays afternoons, from 15:00 to 18:00 CET. Please note that in the weeks of Christmas and New Year, there will be no synchronous sessions.
