The Coolest Thing

MODERATORS:  Gita Pensa, MD & Julie Roth, MD
PANELISTS: Christopher Demas, MD'21; Melissa Kane, EdD;  Maggie Regan, MS & Leo Selvaggio, MFA

SESSION DESCRIPTION:  This session provides an overview of the intersection between medical education and technology, from the old standbys to the newest gizmos.  We will ask ourselves and each other, “What is the coolest thing you’ve seen recently in educational technology?”

10:15-11:15

Concurrent Sessions 1:

SESSION A:  Finding Your People: How to Harness Social Media for Professional Development
PRESENTERS:   Gita Pensa, MD & Kelly Wong, MD
SESSION DESCRIPTION:  Think social media has no business in med ed? Welcome to the 21st century, where even your department chair is on Twitter. Learn how social media has the power to shrink the gap between educators and learners, disseminate your research, find collaborators, and establish your educational “brand.”  We will discuss how to get started using common social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, and the technological tools you can use to create powerful content.

SESSION B:  Technology to Enhance Group Learning
PRESENTERS:   Julie Roth, MD; Melissa Kane, EdD & Kara Stavros, MD
SESSION DESCRIPTION:  Ready to spice up journal club or small group discussions? Learn how technology and file sharing can increase in-class group engagement. We will discuss new approaches to case-based learning and the use of digital storytelling to convey educational content.  The use of video and audio technology, and interactive websites and games, will be considered as means to enhance the group experience.

SESSION C:  FOAM & FOMO: How the Free Open Access Medical Education (FOAM) movement has allowed educators and learners to avoid “missing out”
PRESENTERS:  Kristina McAteer, MD & Fei Cai, MD
SESSION DESCRIPTION:  Some of the best content these days isn’t in journals or textbooks - it’s free, online and you can even make it yourself! FOAM is a total shift in the way academic information gets shared. Learn how to find and use FOAM, and how identifying and filling an educational need among your learners and colleagues can extend your med ed reach. We will discuss resources like Figure1, The Curbsiders and ALiEM. This session is not a “how to” session - but stay for the afternoon if you want to get some additional DIY action.

11:30-12:30

Concurrent Sessions 2

SESSION A:  Publishing, Promotion and Portfolios: Leveraging Social Media in Academia
PRESENTERS: Dina Himelfarb MD, FACEP
SESSION DESCRIPTION:  You’re on Twitter, you’ve got a blog, and you’ve got a following. How do you convince your department chair and the faculty promotions committee to value digital scholarship and productivity? The tides are changing in academia. Learn how creative use of educational technology and social media can heighten impact factors and Altmetric scores, and ultimately get you promoted. This session will address how your institution may view digital scholarship, and ways to advocate for the inclusion of digital scholarship as criteria for promotion and tenure at your institution.

SESSION B:  Building Your Electronic Library
PRESENTERS:   Gita Pensa, MD & Maggie Regan, MS
SESSION DESCRIPTION:  Too many resources and nowhere to put them? Learn how to organize and disseminate information with productivity management and digital curation tools. We will discuss learning management systems, RSS feeds and Evernote.

SESSION C:  Learning Theory and Shiny New Things
PRESENTERS:   Emily Green, PhD, MA; Cleo Rochat, MD’21 & Harry VanDusen, MD’21      
SESSION DESCRIPTION:  Those of us interested in educational technology may find ourselves automatically reaching for shiny new teaching tools.  Those of us who shy away from using technology may wonder if our teaching suffers as a result.  In this session we will attempt to provide some perspective on the role of technology in the facilitation of actual learning. What does cognitive psychology say about instructional technology, and how do learners feel about the endless number of electronic resources from which they must choose?

12:30pm

Morning Wrap-Up, Evaluation, & Lunch
Please join us for some Virtual Reality demos.  Informal consultations on the tech tools presented in morning sessions will also be available!


Additional Afternoon DIY Maker Sessions:  Available for an additional registration fee. Space is limited so register now!

1:30-4:00

MAKER SESSION 1:  Podcasting (Audio) 101
FACILITATORS: Gita Pensa, MD; Julie Roth, MD; Robert Williams, MD’22 & Fei Cai, MD
SESSION DESCRIPTION:  Do you have a story to tell? Something to teach? Learn how to get it out there for the world to hear. In this interactive session, participants will learn how to take their idea to the next level by creating a brief audio-based educational module in the form of a podcast. This workshop will cover basic interviewing for audio, script formulation and “writing for the ear,” introductory recording, and the basics of editing.

Advance preparation:  Participants should bring smartphones with them to the session and listen to several recordings (TBD) ahead of time.  Shared recording equipment will be supplied. (Limited enrollment: 20)

1:30-4:00

MAKER SESSION 2:  Simulation 101
FACILITATORS: Andrew Musits, MD, MS
 & Gianna Petrone, DO
SESSION DESCRIPTION:  Simulation is arguably one of the most important technology innovations in medical education to emerge over the past decade. How can you, as a medical educator, craft simulation sessions for your learners? What goes into creating a successful simulation? Participants will experience the spectrum of simulation technology as they learn how to create and implement simulation cases. This hands-on workshop will include practice with simulation facilitation and debriefing. This is an introductory level workshop, no prior simulation experience required! 

No advanced preparation needed. (Limited enrollment: 20)

1:30-4:00

MAKER SESSION 3:  Video 101
FACILITATORS: Emily Green, PhD, MA; Whit Fisher, MD; Leo Selvaggio, MFA & Christopher Demas, MD'21
SESSION DESCRIPTION:  Video can be a powerful teaching and learning tool, in the classroom to highlight vignettes, and out of class for content review.  In this hands-on session, participants will watch several examples of educational videos.  Each participant will choose a production/editing platform and create their own brief instructional video.  We will discuss how to best share videos on webpages, in presentations, and via social media. 

No advanced preparation needed. (Limited enrollment: 20)
