Technology Enhanced Learning
We partner with medical educators and students, applying technologies to create awesome learning experiences.
Mobile Tools for Medical Students
The UCSF NeuroExam Tutor was recently featured on iMedicalApps one of the leading online publications focusing on mobile medical technology and health care apps.
We are excited to announce the launch of an innovative new mobile learning tool – the UCSF NeuroExam Tutor App for the iPad!The NeuroExam Tutor presents an innovative approach to learning the neurological physical exam. With clinical cases, physician-authored information and a library of real patient videos, the NeuroExam Tutor helps medical students, residents and practicing physicians perfect their understanding and execution of the neurological exam.
If you missed the UCSF Gaming and Learning Symposium, you can see the speakers and hear the panel discussion here. Seventy educators came together at UCSF to look at real world projects that use game based learning. The feedback from participants was overwhelmingly positive.
The School of Dentistry will be piloting the use of iLios 2 for their curriculum management starting this Fall. The Schools of Medicine and Pharmacy have been working closely with them to share the benefits of the tool, our experiences, best practices, support models etc.
Check out the just launched new Learning Space Toolkit from the folks at North Carolina State University (NCSU) Libraries. The toolkit is a freely available resource designed to support the full lifecycle of a learning space design project, from defining the goals and needs to designing the space to supporting it. By using the Toolkit, institutions will be better equipped to orchestrate the planning process so that learners are better supported and spaces, technology, and services are effective. The Toolkit will be complete by November.
Students are the future, but what's the future for students?
In 2012 the Good video team visited UCSF to learn how the School of Medicine is leveraging educational technology to make learning relevant to students. Check out the full length video to learn more and see how UCSF and other leading edge educators such as Dr. Sugata Mitra, visiting professor at MIT and Sal Khan, founder of Khan Academy, are trying to change the face of learning.
