The voLeA project develops and tests virtual, video-based teaching-learning modules for training the communicative competence of prospective doctors and for testing the learning success. They can complement classic forms of communication training and, due to their efficiency, allow for a broad implementation. All developed components should be applicable independent of location.
voLeA is a BMBF (Federal Ministry of Education and Research)-funded collaborative project between medical didactics (TU Munich) and empirical educational research (University of Erfurt). In the Erfurt subproject, a video-based Situational Judgment Test for medical conversation is being developed and validated.
