Research group description

The research group is researching learning environments and mentoring to enhance healthcare students’, educators’ and professionals' competence development, collaboration, well-being and psychological safety.

We develop and test effective education by utilising hybrid intelligence and digital technology to ensure a higher quality of patient care.

We further specialised in culturally and linguistically diverse minority groups’ research and innovation.

Research materials include qualitative and quantitative data and psychometrically tested instruments (e.g. Mentor Competence Instrument, Mentor Cultural Competence Instrument, Digital Competence & Associated Factors to Digital Competence instruments, Social- and Health Care Educators' Competence). The groups use methods of theory development and testing, interventional studies, predictive modeling, systematic reviews with meta-analysis/meta-aggregation, qualitative study with content analysis, psychometrically validated instruments, & algorithmic and machine learning.
