Improving access to digital learning
Breaking down the barriers
We all know there are challenges and obstacles that can prevent healthcare professionals and students from accessing technological resources, devices and applications. Through our TEL Programme, we are working to promote the reduction and removal of those barriers in the NHS to promote the easy, equitable, cost effective and innovative use of learning technologies and techniques.
We have identified good practice solutions to barriers to accessing learning with case studies to resolve wifi, bandwidth, information governance issues and more. This follows research led by the University of Dundee, JISC, the TEL team, expert groups and other partners. It is divided into three main themes around the barriers and solutions:
- Human behaviours and attitudes around digital literacy
- Technical factors
- Collaboration and information exchange.
