Tuesday, October 16 3:40 PM-4:00 PM Location: Las Vegas Ballroom 2
Abstract: E-learning allows for innovative learning and teaching strategies, including authentic learning tasks. An Alzheimer’s Resource Service partnered with a university to design and deliver a hybrid training model to help businesses become Dementia Friendly. Students engage first with online content about the Dementia Friendly Initiative and then in face-to-face interactions with a local business. Students and businesses engage in a thoughtfully designed, innovative learning environment that can encourage meaningful access and engagement in community life.
