Self-assessment cards

Digital learning approaches are often suggested as possible solutions to the challenges of limited resources and reducing budgets. However, it isn’t as simple as replacing face-to-face learning with online modules. There are a wide range of issues to think about to support this learning if we want to be sure it is effective.

These interactive self-assessment cards will support conversations about how you support digital learning in your organisation and help you develop an action plan to improve your support for digital learning.

Every day we have to make decisions relating to our roles. Some of these are straightforward and easy to make, while others are more difficult and may involve a range of options. We are all accountable for the decisions that we make in our roles, so making a ‘wrong’ choice could mean that you have to justify why you made it, particularly if it leads to poorer outcomes for people who use your services. This learning resource provides you with some challenging decisions, which enables you to see how your decisions might affect the outcomes of people if you had to make them in real life situations.
