Will this brave new world of e-learning make face to face education a thing of the past? This is unlikely to happen. In the future we will use different formats that help us achieve different outcomes: Evidence based learning resources to help doctors develop excellent applied knowledge; interactive case histories to help them develop problem solving skills; and multimedia or simulation based resources to engender healthy attitudes and professional behaviours. Face to face education will continue - in the form of interactive lectures and networking events - and so a blend of learning resources will help us develop healthcare professionals with the right balance of knowledge, skills, and behaviours. There will undoubtedly be more high users of e-learning but there will also be those who prefer face to face education and who will make strategic learning choices as to the formats that they prefer in different contexts and at different times.
Attempting to predict the future is never a completely straightforward exercise - but in the case of e-learning the trends over the past ten years will very likely continue for some time to come. It will be up to us as healthcare professionals to ensure that we use e-learning wisely and harness its many advantages to help use deliver better care for patients and populations. Read more
