This article presents the outcomes of the Mobile Technologies Pilot Project for the Assessment and Learning in Practice Settings (ALPS) Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL). ALPS is a partnership of five Higher Education Institutions (HEI) that aims to develop and improve assessment, and thereby learning, in practice settings for health and social care students. It is funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE). The aim of this project was to identify the readiness of the institutions to adopt mobile technologies for learning and assessment in practice settings, which may include hospitals, health centers, and community locations; and to identify the available and required infrastructure. We report here on five case studies and explore the variety of ways in which mobile technologies were used, highlighting benefits, challenges, and constraints. We conclude that new technologies demand new approaches to learning but remain cognizant of the need to base new approaches firmly in established pedagogy. Recommendations for practice are provided.
