AM•EI Distinguished Lecture:
Teaching and Learning in a Changing World: Adopting a Scholarly Approach for Effective Use of Technology
17 Nov (Tue) | 4pm - 5pm | Via Zoom Conference

Faced with an unprecedented crisis, healthcare professionals around the world have had to adjust the way they practise medicine. For example, telemedicine is being used extensively to support patients during the pandemic. Likewise, medical schools and universities have ramped up educational support to provide and deliver online resources as conventional face-to-face teaching sessions are cancelled.

The COVID-19 pandemic has provided opportunities and the impetus for re-envisioning both higher education in the 21stcentury and how medical education might be provided in the future. Technology will become more central. However, it will require an understanding of how to use technologies effectively in our teaching to develop future professionals conversant in using technologies well in their practice.

Despite considerable research on how to use technology effectively in higher education, the gap between research and practice still persists. Regardless of the pandemic, a scholarly approach to using technology is required in order to bridge the research-practice gap.

Join us to hear from Prof Linda Price as she shares insights on adopting a scholarly approach to using technology effectively to bring about transformative changes and meet the challenges of medical education in the 21st century. It is not about doing things better, but doing better things.
