Collaborative Learning Now Available in Ausmed’s Mandatory Training Modules

May 17, 2019 By Ausmed

We’re incredibly excited to announce a key update to Ausmed’s online learning library – collaborative learning. This feature is available within Ausmed’s new suite of mandatory training modules.

At Ausmed, we recognise that learning is an inherently social act – it occurs best when individuals are able to discuss, collaborate and problem-solve together. This is a potential deficit of online learning compared to face-to-face education.

Given this, we have developed a way to put the social element into online learning through collaborative learning.

Within Ausmed’s mandatory training modules, learners are given the opportunity to submit a written response to a scenario. Their response is then made public for fellow learners to see and review. This exposes learners to alternate view points and allows them engage in a conversation around key elements of clinical care.

Key Outcomes

Giving your staff the opportunity to participate in collaborative learning in an online environment can take the learning conversation to the next level by enabling staff to:

  • Re-enforce new knowledge/skills gained by undertaking online learning
  • Feel confident that they have met the required learning outcomes
  • Be exposed to different perspectives on the learning, and hence deepen their own knowledge and understanding

Collaborative learning will also give educators the opportunity to:

  • Understand the general attitude towards a particular aspect of learning and address potential knowledge/skill gaps
  • Identify any potential issues in regards to an individual’s comprehension of a skill
