What are the “wicked problems” that face us as medical educators, and how can we solve them?
AMEE is excited to be organising another Hackathon, in collaboration with Elsevier as sponsors. With a clear focus on medical education innovation, international teams of educators, technologists, designers and students will come together to brainstorm, disrupt, share, learn, innovate and hopefully create solutions to these wicked problems!
Over the course of 48 hours in Helsinki, with support from the AMEE Technology Enhanced Learning Committee, the groups will develop, pitch, receive feedback, modify their ideas, and finally present their projects to the audience.
Mentors will work with the groups and judges will select the solutions that best align with the challenges undertaken. Prizes will be awarded for the best innovations.
In the symposium on Monday 28 August the winners will present their projects and receive their prizes. The hackathon as an educational concept will be discussed and its implications for medical education.
