Project Progression

2015 - First HMHP Course Conducted

In the first year of the CBBL Project the successful partnership with Strathmore Business School (SBS) started with a Kick-Off meeting in Nairobi. Here the plans for the upcoming the first blended learning Hospital Management for Hospital Management (HMHP) course were made.

When the course was launched in May 2015 it featured:

  • 25 participants from 9 different Kenyan hospitals
  • First usage of the HNU mobile learning app
  • Two face-to-face workshops
  • A five month e-/m-Learning phase with materials available both on- and offline
  • Transfer projects with local hospitals
  • Co-operative online tutoring together with SBS staff
2016 - Internation Certification of the HMHP Course

In 2016 after the successful completion of the first HMHP Course run and the accompanying course evaluation the main project goal was to reach a certification for the course. This was reached in December after a successfull application to the Central Evaluation and Accreditation Agency (ZEvA).

2016 also marked the start of the first e-Learning lessons developed together with Strathmore Business School (SBS) to initiate the future in-house production of lessons in an e-/m-Learning format at SBS to conduct their own blended learning courses.

2017 - Development of E-Learning New Lessons

The development of new learning was continued in 2017 and in total 12 new lessons were developed for the HMHP course:

  • Leadership and Governance
  • Capital Budgeting
  • Business Intelligence

The demand for these new lessons resulted from course evaluations and the lessons were incorporated in the new HMHP course run which started in December 2017.
