Co-creating a peer learning platform for nursing education in Berlin-Brandenburg

August 2020-present

We developed KOPA (Cooperation in nursing education Berlin-Brandenburg) – an expanding peer learning platform on the topic of generalist nursing education that adapts to the needs of practical training providers and nursing schools in Berlin and Brandenburg. It aims to promote cooperation and networking, enable digital exchange, and make knowledge more accessible – user-friendly and free of charge. As a first step, Konnektiv held concept and design thinking workshops with the target group, nursing schools, to identify the background, motives and requirements for the design language to be developed. Using WordPress, we created a platform that fulfils a number of functions including a virtual living space, an information space, a media exchange space and a download center. The site is complemented by social media features that allow private messages, setting up small group workspaces, and integrated video conferencing using BigBlueButton.
