Designing Technology Enhanced Learning in Medical Education

November 5, 2018 (Indonesia)

There is a growing number of application, information, and communication technologies in higher education in order to enhance both teaching and the student learning experience. The potential benefits of technology-enhanced learning (TEL) in medical education consist of efficiency in terms of cost, time, and sustainability, as well as enhancement in processes and outcomes, and a transformation of positive attitudes toward teaching and learning practices.

How can we design technology that enhances learning? How can we measure that enhancement? What is the added value for the learner and teaching experience? These questions were discussed during this special webinar session as part of the 3rd International Conference and Exhibition on Indonesian Medical Education and Research Institute (ICE on IMERI) 2018. The theme of the webinar session was “Designing Technology Enhanced Learning in Medical Education,” which addresses issues on e-portfolio, high vs. low fidelity simulation-based learning, and virtual reality in learning anatomy.

Speakers:
Dr. Ardi Findyartini, PhD on Development and Implementation of e-Portfolio

Dr. dr. Aida Rosita Tantri, SpAn-KAR on Simulation based Medical Education: High vs Low Fidelity Simulation

Dr. Isabella Liem, M.Biomed., PA, PhD on Virtual Reality in Medical Education: Digital as a Story Telling in Learning Anatomy

Chair: Prof. Dr. dr. Ari Fahrial Syam, SpPD, K-GEH, MMB
Co-chair: Dr. dr. Aria Kekalih, MTI


Webinar: From Partnership to Innovation: the Role of the Academic Health System

October 20, 2018 (Indonesia)

Globalization undeniably affects many aspects of the health sector around the world. Consequently, academic health centers and health systems can play a great role in improving the well-being of people around the globe. Academic health systems should be enabled to interact via an international organization of some sort, which, in turn, would allow academic health centers to collaborate on a global level in order to address health-related issues internationally.
