Event description

Description

How we live, work and learn is being hugely influenced by technology. Students and professionals already make extensive use of mobile and social technology in their personal lives and increasingly this technology is being used to support both informal and formal learning. The past decade has seen a rapid growth in mobile learning and assessment applications across public, private and professional spheres, presenting real opportunities for innovating curricula, learning and teaching. However, a complex network of applications, software and devices can leave educational developers focused on ‚tools‘ rather than achieving a broader philosophy about the strategic value, application and impact of using Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) resources in educational programmes.

Health professionals are working in a complex and fast-changing environment – it is essential that we prepare our students for this environment and support them in developing learning practices and habits that will enable them to manage and continue their learning throughout their careers, alongside delivering up to date, safe patient care.

In this highly interactive and informative workshop we invite healthcare educators, managers, professionals and students to join us to find out how mobile learning has been introduced and used in other medical/healthcare universities, to discuss opportunities arising from new technologies and to explore how technology could support your students’ and your own learning.

The workshop will be led by a team from Leeds Institute of Medical Education (where mobile learning has been embedded in the Medical School curriculum since 2010) and a team from the Know-Center (who have extensive experience of researching and developing of new technologies to support professional learning, including in healthcare).

This interactive workshop will address the following topics:

  • What is technology enhanced learning?
  • How is society learning using technologies?
  • What role could technology play in learning in the health professions – do we augment, replace or innovate?
  • How can we measure the impact achieved?
  • What does tomorrow hold?

We therefore invite healthcare educators, managers, professionals and students to join us in exploring how mobile technology helps reshape learning resources, whilst creating new opportunities for innovation in learning, assessment and feedback.
