Educational specialists

KNCV is in the unique position to have educational specialists who are trained and have experience in all aspects of pre–service and post graduate training, on the job support, supportive supervision, mentoring and feedback and at the same time having content specialists in all areas of TB prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care.

The skills mix of expertise and competences is used to develop conventional face-to-face training packages, as well as e-learning modules for selected target groups. We developed e-learning modules for Dutch TB nurses working in ambulatory care in the Netherlands as well several e-learning modules for our consultants providing TA to National TB programs.

Blended methodology

Blended methodology is an ideal approach to combine e-learning with a face-to-face component and follow-up at the place of work through mentoring and supervision. The package developed by KNCV on stigma reduction interventions is a good example of this approach.

All KNCV e-learning modules are developed in Articulate Storyline, a software program for developing e-learning. The basic method we use in all modules is to invite the learner first to think about a certain topic/problem to trigger curiosity via cases and questions, followed by feedback on answers and provid¬ing additional resources/information. The modules are built as a story with a logical flow and virtual persons that are followed through the module.

Developing e-learning modules and blended packages is based on a needs assessment and understanding the learning needs of the target audience and following the principles of adult learning.

Currently we are developing for WHO blended training packages on the introduction of new WHO guidelines, to be accessed from the OpenWHO learning environment.

KNCV has been fighting TB since its establishment in 1903. Over the past 120 years, the organization has acquired indispensable knowledge and experience in the field of effective TB prevention and care, resulting in pre-elimination in the Netherlands and significant contributions to global evidence generation, policy development and TB program implementation worldwide.
