Summary of Project

My research project involves looking at Project ECHO and how we learn in this environment. Project ECHO is a teleconferencing network used mainly by healthcare professionals to share knowledge and ideas through case based discussions and presentations from expert speakers. I am interested in how we are learning in this way currently and using a theory based approach I am exploring how we learn together in ECHO as a team. Going forward, I hope this work can be used to better understand what is happening within ECHO and afford useful insights for the planning and setting up of new networks.
