Delivering Health Care Training: Opportunities and Challenges

de Souza Institute offers standardized and competency-based training in cancer and palliative care to health care professionals across Canada. This session will demonstrate how we deliver online courses in two different formats: an educator-led semestered approach or self-directed just in time design. 

We will demonstrate our use of Moodle and it's web services to develop 1) a custom-tailored information system with automatic grading, enrollment, grouping and tracking features to support the standardization of chemotherapy competency training, and 2) courses that learners can start at any time, with automatic grading setup using the Moodle Web API.

Establishing a Positive Teaching Presence in the Moodle Classroom
As educators, we know that we must quickly establish a positive presence in the classroom or risk losing our students, by not establishing engagement, resulting in an ineffective learning environment. When we establish a positive teaching presence we are better able to engage our students in the classroom. Our teaching presence is found in our use of dialogue, gestures, verbiage, relatable experiences, and validation of student needs, ways of learning and culture. When we have a strong presence, our students demonstrate a higher level of cognitive thinking related to the concepts taught, perform better in assessments related to that content area and are better able to transfer information from the classroom to the real world. So, how do we ensure that we maintain this high level of presence in the Moodle classroom? In this session, we will explore and discuss ways to transfer our teaching presence skills to the Moodle classroom. Topics will include: Starting the course strong, understanding the needs of the online learner, communication, feedback versus meaningful feedback and identifying the differences between engagement and presence.

 L’accessibilité des cours sur Moodle : Les démarches d’une équipe technique
Votre établissement vous a-t-il  déjà  demandé  d’assurer que les cours en ligne sur Moodle soient accessibles? Que veut-on dire par « accessible »? Que les cours soient accessibles par n’importe quel ordinateur, tablette et téléphone intelligent? Que le contenu des cours soit « lisible » et que les activités soient « faisables » par tous et toutes y inclut les personnes avec une déficience visuelle, une perte auditive, une incapacité physique ou un trouble d’apprentissage? Que les cours soient conçus pour une clientèle diverse avec différents styles d’apprentissage?
Cette présentation abordera les démarches entreprises en ce qui concerne l’accessibilité des cours par une équipe technique responsable de Moodle et du développement de cours en ligne.

Team-Based Learning in Moodle
A critical focus in helping older adults age safely is staff education aimed at reducing responsive behaviours.  Baycrest created a unique solution using 3 key elements: an online social environment, team-based cohort education, and the usage of virtual patient simulation.  The Dual Code, Moodle-based platform was used to host this program due to its unique ability to support social interactions, collaboration, and connections in the learning process to effectively cultivate both the constructivist and connectivist approach required.

Moodle As A Framework

Accessiblity of Courses on Moodle : A Technical Team’s Approach

Powerpoint : https://www.slideshare.net/secret/1BcMkem6TxZGnc

Accessibility Resources: https://www.slideshare.net/secret/gSlkGbnmgPxTVm

 Contrary to its intended use as a Learning Management System (and perhaps contrary to expectations), Moodle can serve as such a framework for integrating a heteroclitous set of programs/functions/modules.  System design used to be top-down, hierarchical, and all-encompassing. Now Moodle has the ability to have many modules that all interact in a network.  This session covers the benefits of Using a Framework, as well as the benefits of using Moodle as a Framework.   Examples of Application Integration Based on a Moodle Framework will be shown including:  Language Lab, Scheduler, inventory management, Mobile applications, ticketing system, GEO and many more.

Sharing Cart plugin for OEP support
As OER are moving beyond content, and OEP (Open Educational Practices) are emerging to suggest a learner + teacher participation in the co-creation process of teaching/learning material. It is the intention of this presentation to illustrate how with Moodle, and the “Sharing Cart” plugin it is possible to create an environment for teachers to share educational resources among faculty and with students. The culture of sharing exist already in education institutions, it is our role to provide platforms, tools and training to facilitate and promote OEP locally, for it to have an impact on a global scale.

Lunch & Learn: Moodle Users Association
The Moodle User’s Association (MUA) is a way for any user of Moodle to have an effect on its future direction! Users propose projects for integration into Moodle core - projects are then voted upon and funded by member fees.  The recycle bin and the new dashboard are both MUA projects and we are currently working on calendar improvements for 3.4.
If you are an MUA member or just interested in hearing more about the MUA, come and join other members and some of the MUA committee in an interactive discussion where we will discuss current projects and active goals of the organization and, of course, answer any and all questions!

Accessibility of Courses on Moodle: A Technical Team’s Approach
Have you ever been asked to make sure that the online courses on Moodle are accessible? What does “accessible” mean? That all courses are accessible through any computer, tablet and smartphone? That the course content is “readable” and activities are “doable” by all students, including those with visual impairment, hearing loss, a physical limitation or a learning disability? That the courses are designed for a diverse clientele with different learning styles. 
This presentation will describe the steps taken to make courses “accessible” from the perspective of a technical team responsible for Moodle and online course development.
