A presentation from the University of Ibadan's College of Medicine of a successful collaboration with Swansea University. With limited funding teh two institutions were able to develop open access copyright free teaching materials that enhanced the teaching of Health care delivery.


  • 1. The Ibadan-Swansea Partnership The value of academic links Dr Ike Lagunju Lecturer/Consultant Paediatrician College of Medicine, University of Ibadan, Nigeria

2. How it all started

  • The ISP started with an opportune meeting between Prof Olugbemiro Sodeinde and Dr Steve Allen at the RCPCH annual meeting in York, 2003.
  • It has since grown into a solid partnership between the UI, Ibadan and Swansea University.
  • MoU signed by both institutions.

  • Capacity building for lecturers in
    • teaching skills
    • computer-based learning
  • Provision of open access, copyright-free educational materials that will improve healthcare delivery & contribute to achieving the MDGs
  • Opportunities for medical students in the partner institutions to have exposure to international health through
    • Learning materials directly relevant to their own setting
    • Exchange programme / Electives
  • Collaboration in other areas

Ibadan students studying ISP modules 4.

  • eLearning modules aim to fill several gaps:

Provide learners especially in low resource settings with learning resources that will be effectiveand appropriate /relevant in improving knowledge/training to ultimately improve health outcomes

  • Take advantage of digital technology and copyright-free content to:
  • develop short learning modules that actively engage the learner
  • include formative assessment so that the learner can track their progress
  • use simple, widely available software so that others can adapt the materials for teaching other target groups

The modules are usually designed to be studied mainly by a single learner sitting at a computer screen. However, they can be used to generate discussion topics or exercises that can be suitable for groups of learners. Promote self directed learning The main aims of the ISP 5. Gains from the ISP: Staff Development

  • 2 Lecturers & 1 Learning Technologist supported by Fulton Fellowships
  • 1 Lecturer supported by funds from the Welsh Assembly

6. Gains from the ISP: Staff Development

  • Training workshops organized by the Faculty of Clinical Sciences on How to make effective e-learning modules
  • More than 50 lecturers trained by the group trained on the ISP programme
  • Moodle introduced to Lecturers in FCS
  • Improved teaching skills, better evaluation methods, better defined LOs
  • Studentsmotivated to engage in SDL

7. Gains from the ISP: SDL modules

  • Computer-based learning materials made on priority diseases:
  • Tuberculosis
  • Malaria
  • Global Burden of Disease
  • Care of the newborn
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Trauma care
  • Open access, copyright-free.
  • Available on the intranet of both Universities & on the internet for global use.
  • GES courses ; Large classes
  • Distance learning Programme

SDLModules 8. The broader impact of Partnerships for academic institutions

  • Joint authorship of the OHTM

9. The broader impact of Partnerships for academic institutions

  • Evaluation of
  • Medical Teaching is an electronic resource funded by theWellcome Trust ,Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Healthand theRoyal Society of Tropical Medicine & Hygiene
  • In response to difficulties in finding useful resources to assist in the preparation of lectures, seminars etc for students

10. Aims of the evaluation

  • Evaluate its effectiveness in improving teaching activities
  • To provide feedback for its improvement and further development
  • Resource evaluated by Lecturers & students
  • Opportunity for student elective

11. The broader impact of Partnerships for academic institutions

  • Guest lecturesfor staff and students
  • Involvement in other programmes

Ibadan staff and students 12. The broader impact of Partnerships for academic institutions The EDULINK Project

  • An EU-funded project
  • UI & 5 other Universities in West Africa
  • M Sc Biomedical Teaching Methods - Distance learning programme
  • Based in the Faculty of Clinical Sciences
  • Facilitated by an existing link between UI & an Europe based Institution Steve Allen & John MacDermot

13. Future Plans

  • More modules from other universities in West Africa
  • Capacity building & expertise in production of modules
  • Sharing of resources by institutions

14. Thank you 15. Burden of neonatal mortality Source: -Take a look at this map and suggest where you think the greatest global burden of neonatal mortality is, then clickherefor answer NEXT 45 Variation between countries in NMRs 16. Burden of neonatal mortality The greatest burden of global neonatal deaths occurs in South East Asia. India alone contributes 21% of the global burden. 90% of births occur in developing countries. 99% of neonatal deaths occur in developing countries, notably Sub-Saharan Africa (21%) and South East Asia (37%). The NMR is higher in sub-Saharan Africa, but South East Asia contributes a higher proportion of total neonatal deaths due to higher population and birth rates.See table BACK Sub-Saharan Africa? - WRONG!! 17. Risk factors Make your guess thenclick to reveal answers List 5 important, common maternal and 5 foetal risk factors for neonatal death 18. Answers

  • Maternal Factors
  • Prolonged, obstructed labour
  • Multiple pregnancy
  • Grandmultiparity
  • Anaemia
  • Fever during labour
  • Foetal Factors
  • Prematurity
  • LGA
  • Perinatal asphyxia
  • LBW
  • Congenital malformations

BACK 19. Common, important risk factors that result in ill health or death in the neonatal period

  • Infants of mothers with
    • Maternal age 16yrsor 40yrs
    • Short stature
    • Multiple pregnancy
    • Primigravida/parity >6
    • eclampsia/ hypertensive disorders
    • Antepartum haemorrhage
    • Oligo/polyhydramnios or rupture of membranes >24hours before delivery
    • anaemia (nutritional or sickle cell disease)
    • Maternal fever during labour
    • Previous perinatal deaths or preterm births
    • Abnormal presentations
    • Obstructed/prolonged labour
    • Meconium staining of liquor
    • Diabetes Mellitus (gestational or established)
  • Foetal factors
    • Preterms (delivered before 37 completed weeks)
    • Postdates (born after 42weeks GA)
    • Low birthweight (4kg at birth )
    • Intrapartum asphyxia
    • Congenital anomalies

Such infants are at risk of asphyxia, respiratory problems, low birth weight, infections, birth injuries, significant hyperbilirubinaemia and other metabolic problems Respiratory distress in an infant with huge omphalocoele.Click on image BACK
