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 the best learning often happens when individuals are able to collaborate, discuss and problem-solve together. However, this group interaction is often limited in an online environment.

Our new collaborative learning feature addresses this by putting a community focus into online learning.

How does it work?

Within Ausmed’s mandatory training modules, learners are presented with a question or scenario to assess their knowledge and gain their perspective. 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 throughout the educational activity
  • Feel confident that they have met the required learning outcomes
  • Be exposed to different perspectives on learning, encouraging them to reflect on their own opinions, knowledge and understanding

Collaborative learning will also give educators the opportunity to:

  • Have vision over the staff responses, providing insights into issues that may have policy or practice implications
  • Identify knowledge/skill gaps and develop a plan to address them accordingly
