Review 2020 and prospect 2021
Prof. Ingmar Blumcke, Chair of the Education Council:
Dear learner,2020 is coming to an end. Indeed, it was a very challenging year for all of us. Fortunately enough, we were ready and able to launch the ILAE Academy and its new eLearning program for Level 1 ahead of the planned schedule. It is with great pleasure, therefore, to see so many of you taking advantage of this opportunity to improve their entry competency in epileptology using the Academy’s eLearning portfolio of case-based modules, ebrain sessions, the MRI reading platform and histopathology tutorials with nearly ten-thousands of visitors and hundreds of registered users.
We are also happy to announce that the development of the Academy’s eLearning portfolio will continue in 2021 addressing in particular the Level 2, our defined proficiency level in epileptology. We expect the first online self-paced teaching courses to be ready for you in months to come. In general, this next level will provide a variety of interactive learning formats including blended learning with f2f courses, pending the end of the pandemic.
We will announce all these new developments through our regular ILAE newsletter, and the ILAE Academy news section.
Looking forward to meeting you again in person and meanwhile, stay safe and please enjoy the ILAE Academy eLearning experience.
