Abstract

This comparative case study aims to determine whether a training workshop in cognitive assessment could be satisfactorily delivered using video conferencing. Audio-visual recordings of a traditional face-to-face workshop and one using online video conferencing were analysed and outcome measures were compared. The video conference participants interacted with the educator far less than those at the face-to-face workshop. The video conference participants reported higher satisfaction and greater knowledge translation. The improved outcomes from the video conference workshop appear to be due to the participants being able to discuss the learning with their colleagues and plan changes in work practices simultaneously.
