  2. 2. http://Learning-Layers-eu Aims for today Give you: • An introduction to the Learning Layers project • A quick introduction to one of the Learning Layers tools (Confer) • A chance to send ideas/info into Confer and see how it can then be used by a working group Discuss with you: • Ideas for how Confer could be used to support students or staff 2

  7. 7. http://Learning-Layers-eu The resulting three tools in healthcare 7 Bits and Pieces: Record/collect, organise, share and collaborate on informal learning & resources Living Documents: Developing knowledge, collaborative editing, discussions around documents, sharing knowledge Confer: Supports working groups, maintains focus and flow of work, structuring task, supporting discussion, reaching consensus
  8. 8. http://Learning-Layers-eu – Scaling up Technologies for Informal Learning in SME Clusters – layers@learning-layers.eu Confer • Original idea – Practice-demand (bridging between face to face meetings, keep tasks on focus and moving forward, offer easy, early engagement in collaborative work) – Research interest (hybrid social networks, scaffolding for networked learning, progressive inquiry model) • Tool Supports – Easy collection of ideas from F2F discussion – Structuring (scaffolding) of collaborative task for working groups – Discussion throughout – Support for early development of ideas prior to formal writing 8 Support working groups - focus, flow, discussion, consensus

Confer could be used with undergraduate students to support problem- based learning. VTS GP Trainee Leads, Ireland & Australia. Learning Layers toolset can also be used to help GP Trainees share and work more effectively in groups online.
