Abstract

The group identified that the obstacles to the development of computing skills and professional development included: time, family commitments, lack of equipment, lack of motivation or courage to get involved, financial costs and lack of support or mentoring. Evaluations of the project were also conducted as part of the national study and it was considered that the WISDOM model could provide a major educational opportunity in terms of addressing the issues of pace, place and time. The use of the Internet or similar networks has associated technical and financial problems which require further investigation to develop appropriate support infrastructures. To summarize, the WISDOM model has been developed to address the issues involved in continuing professional development by prompting learners to: reflect on their current strategies of problem solving and education; develop the practical skills of searching computer databases and critically appraising literature; use problems from their daily practice to formulate questions, search the literature and seek answers; learn within a multi-professional environment without the traditional organizational barriers; learn at a time, place and pace to suit themselves.
