4:15 PM - 5:15 PM Wednesday, October 29

Traditional forms of training are often leveraged to bridge performance gaps and provide ongoing development opportunities. However, the methods often fail to deliver on the performance support needs of today’s mobile worker.
In this session participants will explore a case study from Saint Elizabeth Health Care that identified the readiness and value of implementing a mobile learning strategy to bridge performance and training gaps by providing just-in-time and just-enough training at the point of need. You will learn from the findings of a pilot study that was conducted to observe the readiness of front line staff to leverage mLearning and the impact it might have as a sustainable performance and training strategy.
