Technologies . . .

Research generally supports the notion that most adults who voluntarily undertake a learning project do so more in the hope of solving a problem than learning a subject. (Cross K, 1981)

Adults learn when they are ready to learn and they do so in different ways. The common thread is that they are seeking solutions to problems. Medical Directions develops educational programs for adults that use multiple technologies to meet your audiences' needs. Important considerations are:

What problem are you trying to solve?
How can we duplicate these problems in a practice environment?
What should your audience be doing better?
How will you know improvement when you see it?
What technologies work best for your materials & audience?
How can you continuously improve your programs?
