Every year eLearn Australia supports non-profits to integrate technology into their learning strategies through our Elearning Incubator program. After receiving an overwhelming number of applications, we’re proud to announce this year’s winning applicant is TRACS WA (Training Centre in Subacute Care WA). eLearn Australia will be working with TRACS WA to develop game-based elearning modules covering sub acute care.
The $10 000 incubator grant will provide TRACS WA with the opportunity to enhance their flagship Subacute Learning Program by developing high quality, interactive elearning and embedding this into learning modules.
The gamification of their learning process dives straight into the heart of what elearning is about, which is to stimulate engagement for a more satisfying learning outcome. What really stood out for us about TRACS’s application was the strong link between their project and the overall positive impact it would have on their organisation.
TRACS WA is the Western Australian Department of Health's premiere state-wide training unit in subacute care. Their vision is that Western Australians requiring subacute care receive coordinated, best practice care from skilled, engaged and committed clinicians. TRACS WA’s aim is to improve the quality of care in subacute areas such as rehabilitation, geriatric evaluation and management, and psychogeriatric care, through training and development of staff involved in the delivery of subacute care services across WA Health.
TRACS WA provides access to communities of practice allowing clinicians to exchange information and insights, face-to-face and videoconferenced seminars and workshops, a skills exchange program providing clinicians with the opportunity to gain additional experience through shadowing and observation at other sites and blended learning opportunities including self-paced learning packages and elearning via their website.
Due to the unique funding issues for non profits, we understand how difficult it can be for them to see their online course, learning tool or educational app come to light. That’s why we started running our $10 000 elearning Incubator program.
