Positive Thinking: How To Change CHW Attitudes About E-Learning

Don't let negative thinking about e-learning derail your health worker training project. Use these strategies to change your attitudes.

Do your staff and trainers have a dark outlook toward your e-learning project?

Not to worry. Your online training plans need not be a disaster. In fact, the online training you provide to naysayers can become one of your best benefits if you follow these simple strategies.

Provide extra support.

Fear is often the seed of negative feelings. And technology, warranted or not, is often the seed of fear. Many people worry about technology: will they be able to log in? Will they understand how to use the course? Will they fall behind and not be able to catch up? It's understandable, especially since CHWs value their time connecting with individuals.

Provide extra support, comfort and guidance when you start a new online training program. By making sure your learners understand that they'll receive just as much help as they need, you'll quiet many of their fears.
