CREATING REALISTIC TRAINING ENVIRONMENTS

Learning skills remotely

Learning skills remotely

Our lifestyle has suddenly changed. Also work changed. Previously we had joint working in the evening, this now becomes difficult or impossible. It should not be that nothing happens anymore to competence in the care sector. What is still possible? In which alternative ways can we implement training and practice?

A lot of questions and few answers. On this page we share initiatives and experiences regarding "learning skills remotely". Webinars, streaming, e-learning, Elo, but also the social aspect. What is going well, but above all, what's not good and what can others learn? At present, Safety Regions North Holland North, South Holland South, Gelderland South, Mentaalbewust and FireWare have joined forces. We learn from each other and share experiences on this steep learning curve. We do not guard this information to ourselves, we actively share it through social media and on this site.

Do you need information or want to contribute? Do not hesitate to contact us. We love working together. Sharing with others enriches you!

The scalability of your image

17-04-2020

Als instructeur heb je een platform. Of live voor de klas, of voor een camera. Je geeft les, je onderwijst. Dat is een grote verantwoordelijkheid. En dat vraagt om passie. Anders hou je het simpelweg niet vol. Met de tijd leer je dat je bepaalde zaken in een specifieke situatie…

The three circles of qualified remote working: software selection
