Abstract [en]

In Sweden, like in other countries worldwide, the COVID-19 pandemic forced many education programs to a sudden and urgent switch to online teaching and learning, often without sufficient study. This was the case not only for schools and higher education butalso for continuing education and training. In this study, we exploratively examine resident physicians' perceptions and experiences of using a digital learning environment as part of their specialist medical training. The paper focuses on synchronous learning through video conferencing (virtual lectures and seminars) and addresses the following research question: What are the perceived opportunities and challenges related to digitallearning from the perspective of the course participants?

The methodological approach is qualitative, based on thematic analysis of course evaluations and semi-structured interviews. The results suggest that: i) pedagogical methods, reliable technology, and the effect of course management on learning outcomes are essential factors; ii) insightsinto participants' perceptions of learning via video conferencing emphasize that interactive communication and group discussions are significant for their learning, and iii) sociotechnical aspects were part of the elements that influenced participants'satisfaction with digital learning. Findings from this study contribute to better knowledge and understanding of how a digital learning environment in general, and learning through virtual lectures and seminars in particular, can be developed and incorporated into the programs to increase their usefulness.
