Please Review The Core Competencies Trainers Should Possess Across Different Areas
(inspired by The European Framework for The Digital Competence of Educators)
- Trainers should hold a substantial understanding of the health & care sector, as well as those needs related to innovation inherently present. A former health & care professional who now works as a trainer could be a preferable option.
- Trainers should hold a substantial digital understanding to select and prepare adequate digital solutions for the training scenario, and set well-defined activities that would lead to achieving the pre-established learning objectives.
- Trainers should hold a substantial understanding of how to use digital learning solutions and structures to foster multidisciplinary collaboration and dialogue amongst participants and within and between wards.
- Trainers should hold a substantial understanding of different assessment tools–both digital and non-digital–and their varying types of use in evaluation scenarios (in relation to the given digital solution). Trainers should also possess the capacity to provide appreciative, constructive feedback.
- Trainers should hold a substantial understanding of how to empower and actively engage learners in the digital skills training so that everyday situations become a key part of the training and consider patient involvement.
- Trainers should hold a substantial understanding of how to train learners when they must express themselves, e.g., via concrete problem solving, so as to ensure learners apply insights gained to their daily work and boost further innovation.
The Ideal Training Team: Who’s Missing From Your Group?

- They will ensure continual planning, development, and adjustment of training.
- When we speak of experience, we refer to 1-2 specialists who have already received training on the given digital solution and can serve as “cascade trainers”. You can change these individuals based on the digital solution at hand.
- She/he/they will be those who are open to using digital tools, possess good or high digital literacy, and have a strong standing within the team.
- She/he/they will be able to provide a different, more technological-focused perspective. The individual could be an IT systems manager, for example.
