BOX OF OUR MEMORIES (BOOM) PROJECT: Box of our Memories - Adult Education Programme Caring for Memory Loss

On the occasion of the 5th and final transnational partner meeting held in Szczecin (Poland) on the 6th and 7th January 2023, the BooM Consortium is pleased to announce the launch of the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Course and its imminent piloting.

The Continuous Professional Development (CPD) Course

The BooM Consortium has developed and finalised the Continuous Professional Development Course addressing adult educators and professionals working with memory and memory loss to give them the opportunity to upskill and share their sector expertise and competences. The course is designed to formally support beneficiaries in getting to know and use the resources and the innovative environments of the BooM Project in an informal learning context, to develop the expected competences, skills and knowledge. Structured according to the training needs of partners' LWGs, the course has a modular blended format, including a face-to-face training and a self-directed online learning through the project platform. The modules are scenario-based to provide the necessary rational, strategic insight and a range of didactic contents to support the delivery of the course. The Continuous Professional Development Course will be available as an OER in English, Swedish, German, Croatian, Greek, Italian and Polish. In other words, the digital and multi-language learning materials will reside in the public domain that permits no-cost access, use, adaptation and redistribution by others with no or limited restrictions.

Next steps

At the last Transnational Partner Meeting in Poland, the Consortium planned to pilot in March the Continuous Professional Development Course in a blended-learning training format. The piloting, aimed at both professionalsworking in museums and archives and professionals dealing with memory and memory loss, will also include the BooM toolkits and the App for carers and families. In fact, the professionals involved in the CPD course will be invited to pilot dementia friendly sessions in their organisations with caregivers and their users with dementia.
