As new technologies evolve and develop, educators seek new and pioneering ways to utilize technology for the enhancement of learning. The Free Clinic Model for volunteer training is a powerful example of how web-based learning environments can enhance learning, increase worker effectiveness, promote productivity and reduce costs in a non-traditional setting. The development and implementation of the Bradley Free Clinic Model provide insightful information for schools, programs and educators charged with preparing students for leadership in the workforce, administrative responsibilities, or careers in vocational education. In order to be successful, these students must possess the ability to train and educate workers in a cost-effective, innovative and flexible environment. Informed decision-making skills and knowledge regarding pedagogy will promote students' ability to design and utilize effective web-based learning models in non-traditional work settings.
