Continuing the Collaborate Discussion: The Next Chapter in Technology and Health Sciences Education
Concurrent Session 7
Discuss with panelists from UNMC, GWU and Mayo Clinic their “take aways” from the first ever OLC Collaborate on the future of instructional technology in Health Professions Education and generate ideas for future inter-institutional collaborations.
Join us in furthering the cross-disciplinary discussion we started at the first ever OLC Collaborate on the use of instructional technology in Health Professions Education. In this session, Mary Niemiec will invite panelists from UNMC, GWU and the Mayo Clinic to share their motivations for participating in the regional conference and to discuss key “take aways” related to the use of instructional technology and the potential for future inter-institutional collaborations. Our goal for this session is to continue to build a “learning community” focused on future use of instructional technology in health professions education and to foster collaborations across institutions to share best practices, lessons-learned and research.
The session will be structured as follows:
Panel discussion (15 mins): Panelists will share motivations for attending the UNMC Collaborate and key “take aways” from the regional conference, including a discussion of potential future collaborations among institutions.
Plenary discussion (20 mins): Using PollEverywhere, we will solicit input from the audience to lead a discussion on challenges to adoption of instructional technologies in health professions education, what can be gained from future collaborations across institutions, and how we might continue to broaden the community of scholars and practitioners focused on promoting evidence-based uptake of instructional technologies to support health professions education.
Panel wrap-up (10 mins): In this session, the panelists will “wrap up” the plenary discussion with a few ideas on next steps for continuing collaboration among institutions.
