For the success of digital applications, especially AI applications, it is essential that both developers and medical professionals are enabled to understand each other’s perspective. For this reason, a new concept for an interdisciplinary complex practical course was developed for the master’s program in computer science at a German university, based on online learning nuggets and a hackathon on site. The core of the concept is a real-world medical application task: extracting ECG patient data from a smartwatch to support primary care physicians in making decisions regarding an action. The concept was developed based on the so-called constructive alignment concept. An initial application of the concept showed that it was rated as very positive in terms of learning experience and working atmosphere.
