OpenLearning is thrilled to announce that its recent project in collaboration with Australian Catholic University has been awarded 'Highly Commended' by the AITD Excellence Awards 2021 for Best Capability Building Program.
The project was initiated by the Australian Catholic University, School of Nursing, Midwifery & Paramedicine (VIC) in response to an urgent need to upskill over 2,000 Victorian nurses working with patients in a COVID-19 environment over the past two years. The program was launched in early July 2020, shortly after the onset of the second wave of COVID-19 through community transmission in Victoria.
The content for the program was developed by ACU academics over 4 weeks. OpenLearning was chosen as a partner in this project as they were able to provide an online learning platform that not only facilitated state-wide access, but its agility allowed the update and delivery of rapidly evolving information in real-time.
"This course looks extremely interesting and comprehensive. With the second wave hitting Victoria at the moment, it is the perfect time to be learning as much as possible about this virus. The information gained can be used to improve our own practice and to educate those around us."
