Learning Disruption 2.0
“It is no longer a question of whether or not we will implement e-learning in our schools, but whether we will do it well.”
Technologies of the Web 2.0 are changing the ways students connect, interact, and share their lives. Teachers must be proficient in online teaching and learning tools in order to improve their teaching and maximize learning opportunities of their students especially in higher education like medicine.
It really doesn’t take too long to figure out what tools are important to you in your professional life and what instructional design could be used in your traditional and virtual classrooms. Fortunately, most of these tools are free and easy to use and can be mastered with little or no help. The key part is to be thinking about the pedagogical aspects and to start creating opportunities for students to use the tools in their learning.
Allowing your students to use these tools can give them some new and exciting ways of demonstrating their learning, and at the same time can provide alternatives for matching activities with learning styles while promoting cooperation, sharing, and the building of a learning community. The goal of this workshop is to introduce you to some of the online tools that are being used successfully by teachers, and to reflect on how these tools could be used in teaching and learning.
At the end of workshop participants will be able to:
- Describe generation and curriculum trends
- Create formative assessment with gamification
- Demonstrate how to use these modalities in their current curriculum
- Personal Laptop for all participants, Good internet connection
- Teaching faculty members
Duration: 3 hours
