    • Independently develop online instruction material and host it in on an e-learning platform.
    • Implement appropriate use of technology to enhance learning activities inside and outside the classroom.
    • Use social media to form a community of inquiry and identify the potential role of using this model at their own institutions.
    • Utilize tools for managing information and practice a workflow for integrating these tools into a personal information management strategy.

    • Describe the role of online learning in health care education in the context of cognitive science principles.

    Course Description

    Advances in cognitive sciences and technology have catalyzed a shift from passive large-group learning to active and interactive learning, necessitating the adoption of new approaches to teaching and assessment. Health Care educators require the ability to use technology to create innovative learning environments and materials. To help manage the information explosion, educators and learners must also be able to curate and evaluate online content. Finally, educators must know how to leverage Web 2.0 and social media tools to create professional learning networks consistent with social learning theories.

    Scholars attending this course have direct experience in expanding their skills in five areas: (1) asynchronous and online learning; (2) classroom technology for interactive learning; (3) managing information and combating information overload; (4) mobile learning via tablet and smart-phone apps; and, (5) social media and online communities of inquiry.

    Accreditation

    The Harvard Medical School is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

    The Harvard Medical School designates this live activity for a maximum of 43.50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

    The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada recognizes conferences and workshops held outside of Canada that are developed by a university, academy, hospital, specialty society or college as accredited group learning activities.

    Through an agreement between the American Medical Association and the European Union of Medical Specialists, physicians may convert AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ to an equivalent number of European CME Credits® (ECMECs®). Information on the process of converting AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ to ECMECs® can be found at: www.eaccme.eu..

    *Note: AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ is calculated based on submission of a preliminary agenda and may be subject to change.

    Harvard Medical School (HMS) adheres to all ACCME Accreditation Criteria and Policies. It is HMS’s policy that those who have influenced the content of a CME activity (e.g., planners, faculty, authors, reviewers, and others) disclose all relevant financial relationships with commercial entities so that HMS may identify and resolve any conflicts of interest prior to the activity. These disclosures will be provided in the activity materials along with disclosure of any commercial support received for the activity. Additionally, faculty members have been instructed to disclose any limitations of data and unlabeled or investigational uses of products during their presentations.

    CME activities accredited by Harvard Medical School are offered solely for educational purposes and do not constitute any form of certification of competency. Practitioners should always consult additional sources of information and exercise their best professional judgment before making clinical decisions of any kind.
