NIDA is pleased to announce the publication of the /eLearning in Health Bibliography 2019-2021
The COVID pandemic precipitated a sudden and radical switch from traditional classroom-based learning to learning entirely online, or in part online and in part face to face 'Blended'. There is an urgent need to establish and share experience of best practice.
NIDA has compiled a bibliography of around 225 items describing recent initiatives, mainly periodical articles, and annotated with brief extracts from each article's abstract, introduction or conclusion. A
general section of references is followed by a number of subdivisions:
- Continuing Education and Training
- Fake news, Disinformation, and Digital Literacies
- Patients and Service Delivery
- School and Child Health
- Social Media Applications and Mobile Learning
- Specific Morbidities and Conditions Applications
- Review In Conclusion
The bibliography has been prepared in part as an initial step towards the proposed research project/Impact Evaluation of eLearning in Science and Health Literacies/and has revealed that the bulk of research
presently available concerns using elearning in professional education in the health sciences, be it at undergraduate, postgraduate or practitioner level.
A disturbing conclusion is that very little concerns health education and literacy at school level or about educating the public in health literacies - for which there is a pressing need in order to counter the
'fake news' "infodemic".
We invite you to critically appraise, share with your network and let us know of any resources you would additionally recommend.
