This year’s conference of the Association for Medical Education in Europe (AMEE) took place in Barcelona between 27-31 Augusts. Over 3500 educators, researchers, administrators, curriculum developers, deans, assessors, students and trainees in medicine and the healthcare professions attended this conference to learn about and discuss the recent developments in the field. The educational partners of the WATCHME project attended the conference and presented their approaches to define, implement and assess “Entrustable Profesional Activities” in their curriculums and discussed the student’s perception on meaningful feedback on task-related expertise development in the workplace. Mateum had a booth presenting the EPASS system with the newly developed learning analytics in which potential buyers could gain an impression of the system usage.
