Many learners are now finding that they have reached a "threshold" in practical subjects (e.g. manual handling) where peer-related interaction and problem-solving scenarios are more useful than facilitatied learning in a formal structure.
DLF Training will now be offering additional study days and workshops to our current course programme.
What do study days and workshops entail?
These will be one day meetings that will focus either on a specific topic (e.g. paediatrics) or on a specific problem area e.g. the use of telecare in dementia. There will be no competency outcome and therefore a larger number of delegates may attend, leading to interaction and discussion. Study days would offer short expert presentations as part of the programme.
The learning outcomes of both types of meeting are:
- To enable delegates with the same knowledge and skill levels to meet, interact and have the opportunity to peer present
- To facilitate new developments within the equipment field either generally or specifically
- To enable comparative evaluation of equipment in relevant fields and areas of interest
- To compare and contrast best practice in specific problems areas
- To develop possible draft guidelines relating to working practices and /or equipment
- To allow delegates access to problem-solving situations and scenarios with the relevant equipment
- To enable inspection, use and evaluation of new equipment, ideas, protocols and practices within a peer environment
- To allow CPD completion for professional requirements
We will shortly be announcing new dates for study days for specialist subjects so please keep checking this page.
