4D – Digitalization in learning practice placement

Objectives

The 4D project aims to introduce mobile technology in practice placements, creating a bridge between the different actors involved learning contexts to foster the best experience in practice-based learning in healthcare settings. The 4D project aims to address this goal by implementing the five main objectives.

=

Determine the key factors (practice-based learning models) and the key elements (diffusion of innovation theories) to introduce mobile technology in practice placements.

=

Co-Design a mobile learning application (app) for successful adoption of mobile technology in practice- based learning reflecting users’ core values and needs

=

Introduce Digitalization and train the participating institutions through workshops and providing tutorials.

=

Pilot and assess the use of mobile learning in practice placements in healthcare higher education in three different countries in Europe.

=

Disseminate the project findings as a inclusive approach to exchange and support the practice placement digitalization around universities EU Countries.

Outcomes

The main results of the 4D project can be divided threefold:

Determinants to introduce mobile technology in practice placement

Evaluation and good practices on introducing technology in practice placement

Design and implementation of a mobile learning application in practice-based learning

Nursing Simulation with digitalization
