Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL): Transforming Healthcare Education

4m of CPD
Virtual reality, augmented reality and mobile learning are just a few examples of how technology is becoming embedded in modern teaching methods. It’s a trend bolstered by the view that it’s no longer acceptable to learn on live patients using the teaching method of 'see one, do one, teach one'.

What is this article about?

In the view of Gupta (2017), technology is ‘cool’ and increasingly a part of students' lives. Yet, as the demand for technology enhanced learning (TEL) increases, many teachers and facilitators find themselves playing catch up with the vast array of new technologies that promise to revolutionise healthcare education. In the view of Moran et al. (2018), new students are now so deeply immersed in technology that they are less able to function in traditional classroom settings, leaving their trainers faced with the often-daunting task of providing the most appropriate technology-based learning environment to meet their needs.

Technology advantages - knowledge more accessible readily available, mobile learning on hand at any time to refer to. It also has confidentiality issues regarding patients not face to face nursing. Use as a support learning tool.

There are so many different subjects on Ausmed! I thought it'd be hard to find the resources I need for complicated procedures or rarer conditions, but they've had everything I've looked for so far.
