An online medical training company has teamed up with the Australian National University to teach typing instructors how to type.
Key points:Touring the countryTouring is a type of travel that can take up to 12 weeksA company called Typewriter Australia has launched a tour program to train typing instructorsHow to make the most of online training coursesTutorials have also been offered for the medical profession, as well as for business.
The company, which has more than 50 full-time staff, operates in Australia, New Zealand, the United States and Canada.
Its main target audience is people with no formal typing training, who can also benefit from the program.
Its founder and CEO, Dr John Frawley, says online training is becoming increasingly popular.
“When you get into an online class, you don’t know how long it’s going to last,” he said.
“The longer you spend in the online class the less you know about the material you’re going to be teaching.”
You can’t tell if you’re getting the most out of the class.”‘
It’s about getting a taste’In his book The Typemaster, Mr Frawly talks about the challenges of training a newbie, and explains how to avoid them.”
One of the reasons I’m not particularly keen on people taking on a course is they’re not getting a real taste of what they’re about to learn,” he says.”
It’s not about getting into a class to learn, it’s about having a taste of the subject matter.
“He also says he would recommend a first-time trainer get their first typing lesson, as the skills learnt in that lesson can be applied to the next class.”
If you’re in a position where you can teach someone with a minimal amount of experience, it might be more effective to give them a little bit of an introduction to the subject before you get them into the next one,” he explained.”
But once they’ve got that up and running they’ll probably start to appreciate it more.
“Touring has also become an increasingly popular option for Australians, with the company also offering a free tour program in Queensland and New South Wales.
Mr Frawle said the idea behind a free typing lesson was to give typing instructors a little taste of where they’re going.”
They might get a little tip on what to look out for, and what to avoid, but it’s not something they’ve had a lot of experience with,” he explains.”
As soon as you’re teaching someone with no typing experience, they’re probably not going to have a lot to gain.
“Tutorial for health professionals’ eyesThe company also offered a tutorial on how to make your online training course even more beneficial for the health profession.”
We’ve also been using the type trainer to train people with a range of different types of training,” Mr Fawley said.’
It gets you in touch with your own type’Dr Frawles says typing instructors can gain valuable insights about what types of people might be interested in the course.”
Whether it’s a health practitioner or an accountant, it gets you into touch with what you’re actually looking for in the class,” he told RN Breakfast.”
For people who might be just getting started in the industry, or maybe are looking to get their feet wet in the profession, you get a sense of what your target market might be.”‘
I like to make sure my students know the basics’Mr Fawles said his company’s online medical teaching had a long history.”
I started Typewriters in 1997, and we’ve been doing it ever since,” he recalled.”
My goal was to get people to go through this course and get them in touch.
“A lot of the training you get online doesn’t work, so it’s the people who are actually learning the material that are really, really important.”
Dr Fawes said the company had also done training in the field of health and safety.
“There’s no doubt that the industry is in the midst of an explosion in health and personal safety,” he concluded.
“Our patients have been hurt in the past, and it’s an industry where safety and health are very much at the forefront.”
So, the whole idea of the type training industry is to get the students involved in the safety and protection of their patients and staff.
