Intro to course

I am a registered nurse and past nursing tutor of many years, having designed and implemented an 'on line' nursing informatics paper in the past; its a good way to work from a rural setting and still keep your hand in as an academic.

With students choices for learning being so diverse now, its important to consider how technology and eLearning can enhance the learning experience for all who have access to this form of technology.

Re the project, I am interested in setting up some 'on line' mini education sessions for Registered Nurses in a rural setting, and evaluate if these are perceived as 'user friendly' and helpful to their on going professional development.


  1. Hello Liz
    It sounds as if you have a lot of flexibility in your work. I really like you idea about putting up mini online education sessions for nurses. I have been trying to persuade colleagues to get this happening for a number of years - time always seems to be the dampener. I look forward to hearing more about your ideas on your blog.

  2. Hi Liz, I am interested in hearing about this too. I think it would be very useful for nurses who live rurally and work shifts to be able to learn online.

  3. Hi Liz,

    Welcome on board. We are a friendly lot here and are very supportive of each other.

    I have watched some really interesting stuff in second life over the past two years.
    Not my subject area, however the birthing pool for midwifery was fascinating. Nursing staff at my institution think it is quite good. I love what they are doing with the communication skills area too.

    Kind regards,
