The Living Classroom is an innovative educational experience for personal support worker (PSW) students delivered on-site in a long-term care (LTC) home. It provides a space where post-secondary educators, students and those living and working in the home engage in a culture of interactive learning. Living Classrooms address workforce recruitment and retention challenges by training future PSWs who are better prepared and more motivated to work with older adults in LTC.
This webinar is being offered in collaboration with the Schlegel-UW Research Institute for Aging.
