  • 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 entrepreneurial issues that are relevant with e-learning applications or modules.
  • 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.
