Continuous EngagementTM
The “Multiple Media, Multiple Times” Method to
Make Your Content “Unforgettable”

Continuous EngagementTM is InQuill’s branded way to infuse educational activity with evidence-based learning theory to improve learning, retention, and outcomes.
 



The 8 Steps to “Unforgettable”:
1. Multiple Media
We take your content and put it into different formats to accommodate peoples’ variety of learning styles: Visual, Audio, Read/Write, and Kinesthetic, or VARK.

2. Multiple Times
Noone “gets it” all the first time. With each additional exposure, learners gain incremental insights that enable declarative knowledge, procedural knowledge, competence, and performance (Moore’s Outcome Levels 3a, 3b, 4 and 5). “One and done” presentations are out. Repetition, in various media, is in. We help you stay in touch with your audience over time, so they continue learning.

3. Accommodating Different Levels of Proficiency
Learners come to your activity with different levels of knowledge. We design assessments and educational tracks for learners to acquire knowledge and competence from where they start.
 
4. Motivation Enhancement
When learners are know what they don’t know, they are more motivated to learn. According to W C Howell learners go through 4 stages, usually one at a time. With multiple exposures to your content, your learners go through more stages for better results.

5. Need for Autonomy
Health professionals are more motivated to complete educational activities when the demands of other parts of their lives are acknowledged and respected. We design programs to be available on demand and geared for independent participation at times convenient to the learner.
 
6. Interactive Learning
Medical problem solving is highly complex. Providers are used to solving problems by actively seeking the solution. By engaging in active learning, learners are assisted in a) applying concepts to real-world contexts and b) building problem–solving skills.
 
7. Group Learning Enhancements
A 2011 study shows that interactivity among practitioners can facilitate learning and behavior change, where learning is the product of interactions among individuals in trusted relationships. This is called “social learning.” We can include private social networking components which enable continuing interaction between the teacher and student, student and student, and among the group.
 
8. Social Media Customization
Research demonstrates physicians of all ages are currently sharing medical knowledge with peers via various forms of social media, including email, texting, and participation in closed online communities. Continuous EngagementTM utilizes these social media to involve learners in educational experiences at intervals after the formal CME activity is over, to retain knowledge and competence.
