Professional development generally means taking time away from your work to go and learn a concept, then return to your team, who may have a “What are you going to make us do now?” attitude. Take a moment to think “what if.” What if professional development were delivered where and when it was important to you? What if you did not have to leave your team to participate in behavior-based professional development? What if your professional development created greater cohesion within your team? What if your professional development were focused directly on issues and content that were meaningful to you and your team?

This session will explore methods of creating mobile professional development that produces greater team cohesion, changes behavior, and allows participants to engage in the development process while they remain on the job with their team. You’ll learn how mobile learning gives participants the unprecedented ability to gain new perspectives and connect with their team in a meaningful way while engaged in the professional development process. Finally, you’ll learn the findings from a recent study and real-time implementation of these strategies.

In this session, you will learn:

  • About mobile professional development strategies to create greater team cohesion

  • How to determine the right amount of content to deliver for the greatest effect on a mobile device
