Technology enhanced learning in medical education - a snapshot of current local and international practice and peek into the future


TEL in Health Professions Education Symposium 
(16 April 2020)





------- (the following message shared with over 240 registered participants by email one day before the session ..... this engagement process (with the audience) illustrates one of the simplest methods to use technology to enable and enhance learning .... which we are not only all familiar with, it is one that all of us use on a daily basis, most often for other purposes ..... this method is however simple to use, accessible to all, and is one simple way to start an eLearning or eTeaching journey ..... and add to your instructional toolbox) -------------

Dear Participants, 

The full text of my presentation at the Technology Enabled / Enhanced Learning Symposium is below. Please review this before the session and skim through the material on my session blog. We can discuss this further during the live symposium online. 

With warmest regards, 
Poh Sun

----------

"Hello.

Thank you (to the over 325 registered participants) for joining us for this online Technology Enabled / Enhanced Learning in Medicine Symposium organised by the College of Clinician Educators, Academy of Medicine, Singapore.

Thank you Dr Dujeepa for proposing this symposium, and to Dr Yuen for moderating this. And thank you to my co-presenters, who are active practitioners and clinician educators using technology to enable and enhance their teaching activities, for presenting at, and joining us for this symposium.

My presentation will be short, and focused with three take-aways. This presentation is complemented by an online open access blog, which includes links to additional online material that I hope you find useful. 



The first takeaway is summed up in the following elegant quote "All teaching, regardless of how it is delivered is basically: present content, provide practice and feedback, assess learning. Sure, there is more, but focus on that."
accessible at the following link below.

This quote reminds us that is is the learning process, and training outcome that we should be focused on as educators. The technology is there to assist us.


My second takeaway is that we should therefore focus on what the student and trainee “sees” or experiences, and “does”, illustrated in the following slide, and available on the link below

As educators we should facilitate, encourage, and promote active engagement of the student and trainee with the educational content, and the learning process, which can include taking notes, reflection, recall, discussion, use and application of the educational content - knowledge, skills and attitudes. Recall facts, answer questions, illustrate and demonstrate skills, offer online / simulated practice, use video to record and provide feedback on performance (under appropriate consent and privacy conditions), and use media, including video, and increasingly VR and AR to allow our learners to visualize, situate and empathise with clinical practice settings.


My third takeaway is that our medical schools, postgraduate programs for clinical training, and local as well as international centres and associations for medical education including CenMED at NUS, and AMEE are already presently providing students access to video recordings of large group lectures and postgraduate presentations, live and recorded, as well as providing online discussion forums, webinars and online courses, especially in the postgraduate and medical education faculty development setting. Links to these activities are provided in the session blog below


It is likely that the rapid shift to online live large and small group teaching and meetings triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic will accelerate our application of technology to enhance and enable learning. The SlideShare post link below, and recent MedEdPublish article elaborate on this.

For participants who might want to explore Technology Enhanced Learning in greater detail after today's session, please consider signing up for an upcoming online CenMED Technology Enhanced Learning workshop on April 27, 2020.

I will now hand over to the next speaker for this session.

Thank you."

Postscript (posted on 16 April 2020 @ 0915am), for discussion - 

"One simple, doable, first step for us to take as educators is to (progressively) make our teaching and training material available for review and use online, as (some open access, some restricted access) digital content (following appropriate and accepted professional usage guidelines, including those for professional use, consent, privacy, and attribution/intellectual property). This facilitates use and review by both students, and fellow educators, to use, and re-use (with attribution). This content can be progressively, and systematically curated and indexed by theme, topic, and ideally also in its most modular, granular form. To encourage, and facilitate re-use, re-purposing, and just in time review. For example - key takeaways, recent and topical papers, guidelines, quotes, illustrations, tables, video clips, modular VR and AR content. Our role as teachers, instructors, demonstrators, educators, content creators, curators, editors, filters/screeners/reviewers, guides and coaches can be assisted by AI, informed by digital and learning analytics."

Technology enhanced learning in medical education - a snapshot of current local and international practice and peek into the future
by 
Poh-Sun Goh

The aim of this presentation is to give a snapshot of current local and international practices in technology enhanced learning (TEL), and then take a peek into the future. An overview of current use of TEL in undergraduate medical education at NUS, underpinning educational programs at NUS including case studies, and examples of use of TEL in postgraduate training and continuous education and training (CET) at NUHS will be made, as well as use of TEL internationally in medical education, and faculty development at CenMED NUS (including online faculty development programs and publications like The Asia Pacific Scholar or TAPS), APMEC and AMEE, with Webinars and Online Courses, not to mention online platforms like MedEdWorld, AMEE guides and publications like MedEdPublish and Medical Teacher, which have gained greater significance with the current COVID-19 pandemic. Early use of newer examples of TEL will be reviewed, including Virtual and Augmented Reality (VR and AR), as well as use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Serious Games. The presentation will conclude with a discussion of factors encouraging adoption of TEL, and challenges to widespread implementation of current and newer methods of TEL.
