Help us keeping the EUSEM Academy up-to-date

As you might know we developed the EUSEM Academy, https://academy.eusem.org, an educational platform, based on the topics of the EM curriculum.  

We need your help to keep the Academy content up-to-date

The content on the platform needs to stay up-to-date and also needs to be complemented, because there are still subtopics that don't have any content yet. For this task EUSEM needs the help of her members. It are the people in the field that know what are new guidelines or changes of view, and it is also you that can recommend useful open free sources that helped you in your carreer.

You can become a part of the Academy editorial board by becoming responsible for a sub-topic. You can choose a topic from the list accessible through this link. Click on it and open it in Google sheets. Fill in your name behind topics that have no name behind it yet, or reply to this email which topic you would like to take under your wing. You will be contacted by EUSEM office with more instructions, about reviewing and adding existing content, on the email address that we have in our system.

We will organise editorial meetings 4 times a year to discuss your findings. The Academy will be updated accordingly.

Please note that:

Some curriculum topics are taken out of the file, because a EUSEM Section or Committee is already taking care of it.
In the topic file, the light blue marking means there is no content on that (sub-)sub-topic yet.
The sub-sub-topics without content are invisible on the Academy.
Go to the topic tree on the Academy, to see how much content is there yet to review within specific topics.
There is a demo in the google drive if you want to know more about the functionality of the Academy.
