Energizing enquiry based learning through technology advances

Kitson-Reynolds, Ellen (2009) Energizing enquiry based learning through technology advances British Journal of Midwifery, 17, (2), pp. 118-122.

Record type: Article


The innovative use of virtual learning tools to support first year student midwives is key in current education. Blended learning considers both face to face student teacher contact as well as accessing e-learning activities to enhance student learning. The process of EBL encourages students to gain a deeper understanding of the theory linked to clinical experiences along with the use of learning resources within both academic and clinical environments. By doing so it aims to enhance and embed knowledge. This article outlines the processes of two such innovations: a ‘WIKI’ and an interactive filmed scenario based activity. An evaluation of these learning technologies to compliment an existing enquiry based learning approach to midwifery education is provided. Future developments of learning technologies can only enhance the student experience with the ultimate aim of ensuring fitness for practice.
