Title: "Burt-on-line: incorporating videoconferencing into the School of Health e-family of technologies

Abstract: Communication in nursing is, perhaps, the most important tool of the professional practitioner. During training one learns the principles of effective communication and its import to patient care. Likewise, in education communication is the principal means by which one person may bring about change in others. The complexities of communicating become apparent both when addressing distressed patients or inquisitive and challenging students. The author’s recent past experience in nurse education, utilising the video camera as an adjunct to teaching and learning and also assessing student performance, became the backcloth to this project and the development of the use of videoconferencing in line with the uptake of other contemporary e-technologies. It is worth noting here that videoconferencing equipment already existed within the University but was not being used regularly. Deployment of equipment took place to establish an active videoconferencing studio at the Burton Centre of the School of Health. The aim of the project is that the School centre at Burton upon Trent will develop effective use of videoconferencing [vc] for the enhancement of learning and teaching, for students and staff alike. This would then offer the opportunity for effective distance dialogue, initially by linking Burton Centre and Boundary House [Walsall Campus] where specific facilities are installed. The success of the project would then permit exploration of further links with other School sites and assist in bridging with NHS Trust hospitals and associated external agencies. The project and its title, suggesting inclusion within the family of e- technologies, is ‘Burt-on-line’ and comes from a development of the original idea mooted by Elaine Ballard [PL and Project Manager] and Peter Wildsmith [ SL and Project Leader].
