Join us June 30 from 11am-12pm ET for the next episode of the MedBiquitous Community Connection webinar series.
This installment is comprised of two 30-minute presentations.
Hugh Stoddard, Assistant Dean for Medical Education Research, Emory University School of Medicine, and Jess Bowling, IT Manager for Curricular Support, Emory University School of Medicine, present "Driving the Golden Spike that Unites Learning Outcomes with Teaching Activities."
In 2018, 84% of medical schools reported being in curriculum renewal. Implementation of a modern curriculum, defined by Irby, Cooke, and O’Brien (2010), demands an infrastructure to collect, aggregate, and report student performance data. The long-standing model of medical education (2 years of classroom followed by 2 years of clinical apprenticeship) required little attention to individual students’ progress. Curricular modifications to implement contemporary, outcomes-based education focus on individualization of content and delivery. In this model, data about students’ performance is the unifying element of teaching and learning. This session will present logic and conceptual technical models for curriculum change and explicate the value of data to successfully execute those changes.
In the second segment, Robby Robson, Member of the IEEE Standards Association Board of Governors and Chair of the IEEE Standards Education Committee, and Co-founder and CEO of Eduworks, discusses "Data Sharing and Collaboration for Health Professions Education and Credentialing."
Data standards allow us to share and collaborate across silos and systems. We often hear that data standards are intimidating or only for the tech savvy. We want to help demystify what data standards are and how they can help in such a turbulent and unprecedented time.
We invite you to come learn about the fundamentals of data standards and how they enable collaboration and sharing for education administration and accreditation; teaching activities and educational content; as well as credentials and certification. The common language that data standards provide improve costs and efficiency which is greatly needed in our current resource limited environment.
