Conference

Research Centre on Transnationalism and Transformation (TRANSIT) will organize on 25-26.4.2016  a conference on Globalizing social and health care at the University of Tampere, in collaboration with MULTI-TRAIN and TRANS-SPACE projects.

Emergence of Transnational Educational Spaces in Social and Health Care Work: Case Study in Training and Integration of Filipino Nurses in Finland (TRANS-SPACE)

Person in charge: Professor Pirkko Pitkänen

The focus of the TRANS-SPACE project is on the transformation processes underway in the field of education due to an increase in international recruitment of labour.  International nurse training in the Finnish-Filipino transnational space will be introduced as case study, with a view to the applicability of lessons learned to other educational and occupational environments. The objectives of the project are to learn about how to contribute to successful nurse training in a transnational setting, and to attain an understanding of the transformative characteristics of the emergent transnational educational spaces.

In order to ascertain how successful international nurse training could be fostered, we ask: What kinds of learning materials and methods are used in the pre-departure training and post-arrival orientation courses? Which methods work in transnational learning environments? A fundamental question is whether the overseas-trained nurses attain relevant professional/cultural/linguistic competences. How do they succeed in their daily work in Finland? What kind of experiences do the nurses themselves, their colleagues and supervisors have in receiving work communities? What educational challenges arise?
