Abstract

Purpose: The use of e-Learning is widespread in healthcare education[1], however it can be controversial and have mixed results[2,3]. Lecturers at the University of Cumbria have personalised e-learning programmes from e-Learning for Healthcare and the Society of Radiographers and used these as a basis for their course material. Lecturers have incorporated the e-learning within their teaching. Students who will start the course in January 2019 will have an opportunity to feedback on their experience.

Background: MSc Medical Imaging (Ultrasound) is a new fulltime programme at the University of Cumbria. This is intensive an accelerated pathway to a career in sonography, designed to address the UK-wide shortage. The University are working in partnership with Health Education England, e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) to provide a personalised learning pathway to help students acquire the academic knowledge to work in the field. e-Lfh is a vast resource containing over 200 programmes, including several specialist imaging projects - Image Interpretation, Radiology, eProton, Radiotherp-e and e-IRMER. Within the radiography programme, Image Interpretation, there are over 400 sessions, a fantastic free resource, but where to start? Lecturers at the University of Cumbria have curated relevant content into a learning path, allowing material to be structured in a format that mirrors their university programme.

Summary: A joint project between the University of Cumbria, Society or Radiographers and e-learning for Healthcare. Demonstrating the value of collective working to make the most of existing educational resources by personalising the approach.
