    Describe strategies your Organization is utilizing to get employees to join and engage in educational offerings during challenging times of low staffing/high census and COVID precaution guidelines.

    I really like the Grand Rounds that my organization does. You can attend them virtual-in-person "live" but they are also posted on a mediasite page where you can go after the fact if you were not able to attend.  I have a short list of presentations that I want to go back and watch when I have time!

    I too have a list of Grand Rounds that I would like to attend, Lindsey. 

    Making sure the managers are aware of a class we are providing well in advance, so they can actually place the class on their staff schedule's and determine the number attending meets COVID guidelines.

    Some strategies our Corporate Education department is using include:

    • Bringing the education to them on the unit and doing short pieces of education such as with the Lifepak on a cart and showing quickly how to remove the test plug and attach the pads.
    • Setting up traveling education on poster boards.  This education is setup in the department for a designated timeframe for staff to complete as they have a moment.  
    • We have utilized a hybrid learning with both poster board education and a quiz in our LMS to capture the training.
    •  We are using more virtual presentation platforms to reach staff across our system in an efficient way.  This also helps to drive up the number of participates for the classes.

    Great ideas @Jackie!   @Janice - How do you help the managers to know about the classes, when they seem so busy themselves?
