Rumi Chunara 10/29/2007 Technology in Medicine medicine: extremely large knowledge base. simulation: provides a venue to rehearse potentially high-stress/high-speed/high-risk situations patient interaction can be rehearsed patient interaction can be delivered (telemedicine) superior patient-care
Rumi Chunara 10/29/2007 Technology and Education: Technology in Education, Educational Technology Technology in Medical Education: Educational Technology (all domains): -automate and increase speed of data processing -engage learners and introduce variety into traditional didactic methods -bring learning outside of traditional context OLPC.com simulations of high-speed, difficult to reproduce situations medicalsim.com
Rumi Chunara 10/29/2007 The Gutenberg Method combines learning resources integrates learning materials can be automated students feel involved in instruction process** Frank L. Lambert. Effective teaching of organic chemistry. Journal of Chemical Education, 40(4):173–174, 1963.
Rumi Chunara 10/29/2007 Pedagogy Flow Lecture Problem set Exam Baseline Lecture with Individualized feedback Exam HST Modules Online tutorial
Rumi Chunara 10/29/2007 HST 090: Cardiovascular Pathophysiology diverse audience course content: basic science and clinical concepts foundational topics which students report difficulty in mastering early on in course course already incorporates problem sets to encourage preparation before lectures
Rumi Chunara 10/29/2007 Module Purposes direct reading feedback for lecturer about student understanding engage students on a complicated topic
Rumi Chunara 10/29/2007 Module Implementation open source : high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design of dynamic websites problem based (wealth of resources on topic are already available: textbooks, lecture notes, internet sources) – still include individualized, formative feedback
Rumi Chunara 10/29/2007 Design Process Questions: –should be challenging, but straightforward to implement in online format –possible formats considered: multiple choice (text, graphical) short answer (match text) long answer (look for key words) graphical answering (create drawings) analogies useful for understanding and extending concepts to enforce the basic underlying facts require thought on multiple layers of concepts
