Learning Community Introduced in First CSU Institute for Palliative Care Self-Paced Course
Learning Community Advances Adult Learning and Retention
SAN DIEGO – November 23, 2016 https://csupalliativecare.org/. Participants who enroll in Billing for Palliative Care Services, an online course offered by the CSU Institute for Palliative Care, will have a new interactive option, a learning community, introduced to enhance the training they receive in the course.
Learning communities can be defined as groups of people who come together periodically to collaborate on classwork. This learning community will be a virtual group, meeting via a technology-facilitated discussion and idea-exchange forum embedded in the course. Because the community is accessible online to participants, they will be able to connect and interact with peers working in other settings across the country who are also enrolled in the course.
