Title: Making Learning Portable: CE on an iPod
Objectives: The objective of this study is to determine the value of reformatting from an audio-visual computer based
presentation to a podcast format. This format provides a new platform for pharmacy practitioners to obtain quality and convenient continuing professional education and is a new resource for continuing professional development activities. It also responds to the changing, fast paced world of the adult learner by utilizing new and evolving technology.
Additionaly, this format appeals to a different learning style and different generation of learners. Methods: Three pharmacy continuing education programs were converted from PC based to a podcast format. After conversion, these become available to a global audience of pharmacists who use MP3 players or iPods. Data collected will include (but not be limited to): the number of iPod users, age of participant, gender and practice type. Results: Comments from potential program participants have been very positive. Pilot studies have been well received. This program is brand new, additional information will be submitted as it is received and reviewed. Implications: A Podcast format provides pharmacists the opportunity to learn anywhere, anytime. Learning becomes truly portable since individual do not need to have a computer or attend a live session to enhance their knowledge.
