Lancashire and South Cumbria ICB Discovery Hybrid Workshop to be held

On Thursday, 21st March, the NHSE Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) team will be hosting The Virtual and Hybrid Learning Faculty (VHLF) workshop.

NHSE TEL is a national platform and provides guidance to trusts across the country, improving how education and learning in health and care is provided. They provide support in all forms of digital education. This includes the latest evidence-based approaches, data, advanced technologies and AI.

Initially launched as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic in October 2021, the VHLF programme aims to support the education community as it develops its utilisation of virtual teaching practices. It aids such areas by increasing impact, confidence and capabilities when designing, developing and delivering virtual and hybrid learning. Also, gaining understanding of how such practices benefit learners and end users.

The VHLF workshop has since evolved as they have continued to gather evidence, data and feedback, which has revealed that the Health and Care workforce is still transitioning to technology enhanced, hybrid and AI-enabled education.

The education community continues to need support, leadership and guidance as they adapt and adopt changes and embed evidence-based best practice methodologies and principles into their practice. This allows a greater understanding of users who will, in turn, be able to deliver better patient care as we move towards a more digital future.

The workshop is the first of TEL’s “discovery” sessions and it is an opportunity for colleagues who are delivering this training to uncover what’s working, what’s not and to identify key priorities to help the TEL team shape future NHS work plans.

The workshop is to be held at 12-1pm on Thursday, 21st March, both in person (at UCLAN) and via Teams and further information, including how to sign up, can be accessed, here.

The event is open to all colleagues in education, whether you wish to share your experiences or simply wish to learn more about current and future digital practices.
