Learn About Mobile Training at HSR 2016

Mobile technology is a powerful tool to deliver on-demand training to health workers, at scale. Join mPowering for a satellite session at this year’s Health Systems Research Symposium in Vancouver to learn how to design training for mobile delivery.

The interactive session, Open Deliver: A Process for Distributing Quality-Assured Digital Training Content, will introduce you to the steps, technology, and context to deliver training content to health workers via mobile devices. You’ll leave the session with an understanding of how to use open-source technologies to collect, structure, deliver, and evaluate training content for health workers.

The session will introduce and provide hands on experience on the technologies that support each step in the process, including mPowering’s ORB platform. You will have the opportunity to try out a range of technologies, including OppiaMobile, an app for mobile learning. We’ll also discuss key contextual factors, with examples from Guinea, Nigeria, Zambia, and more.

Join facilitators Mike Bailey and Carolyn Moore of mPowering Frontline Health Workers, with Huguette Diakabana of eHealth Africa Guinea, to learn how you can use mobile technologies to enhance health worker training efforts toward stronger health systems. Bring your questions and lessons from your own experience – we look forward to seeing you there!

The Open Deliver satellite session takes place on November 15th, from 3 pm to 5 pm. For more information on the 2016 Health Systems Research Symposium and satellite sessions, visit http://healthsystemsresearch.org/hsr2016/.
