In medical and surgical education, there has been a plethora of new educational technologies and interventions with unclear effectiveness and cost efficiency data. We developed a projected cost framework called REC (Roles, Equipment, Consumables) to allow educators to swiftly estimate and assess the resources needed when introducing new technologies in the classroom (Axelsson et al, 2020). This session will walk participants through the components of the REC framework and allow them to estimate their projected costs.
