Designing and using innovative video to support learners - If I video will they watch?

Presenter: Michael Botelho, Faculty of Dentistry, University of Hong Kong
Autumn Webinar Series 2019

In association with AMEE Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) Committee

Summary: Educators have been somewhat slow in rising to the needs and challenges of how to support students by designing meaningful video learning experiences. There are various perceived barriers and challenges to their use and an uncertainty of how best to start and questions of what is effective? This presentation will take an evidence based and personalized perspective on the use of videos in supporting students for the knowledge and skills required of healthcare professionals. It will cover low-entry points for those considering to use video for learning, as well as design principles to create videos for needful learning. In particular, it will cover an innovative pedagogy based on the observation of videoed expert-student dialogue. This video genre captures one-on-one teaching consultions addressing a particular student centred learning need. These are shared on the learning management system for on-demand and just-in-time learning. The student feedback has been positive. These videos have developed to support other learning scenarios such as competence tests and the flipped class.

How to develop a podcast in medical education

Presenter: Raquel Pereira Correia
Spring Webinar Series 2020

In association with AMEE Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) Committee

Summary: Podcasting is a useful medium to complement traditional teaching and it has been shown to promote learning. Students motivation is said to be increased and the understanding of key concepts improved. Podcasts can be easily made and distributed using a smartphone, however, a good podcast involves more than that.

In order to develop a good podcast, it is important to plan the episodes, record high-quality audio, know how to interview and have a solid plan for launching.

All this might seem like a daunting task, but with the right tools, it becomes fairly simple.


This webinar may be of interest to health professions educators and students across the educational spectrum, from undergraduate and graduate settings to continuing professional development, who want to develop and launch a podcast.

Introduction to online teaching and learning: a survival guide for transitioning educators

Presenter: Daniel Salcedo, Taipei Municipal Wanfang Hospital, Taipei Medical University Taiwan
Spring Webinar Series 2020

In association with AMEE Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) Committee

 Online teaching has been around for many years, yet before the COVID-19 pandemic, less than 9% of higher education faculty were teaching online. The rapid changes in the teaching environment have forced us to move online, yet many of us were not quite ready for it.
This webinar aims to introduce some basic principles of online teaching to help educators transition to online learning. We will discuss a few theoretical frameworks, a brief guide to hardware and software, share some tips on course design and highlight some types of online assessments.

This webinar is for educators who have tried online teaching but are not yet entirely comfortable with it. Join us for a fun yet highly practical webinar to help you cope with the transition. Don't forget to bring all your problems to the session; the Q&A section is a great time to discuss them.

Online learning of medical image interpretation to a performance standard

Presenters: Kathy Boutis, Hospital for Sick Children, University of Toronto
Martin Pusic, Boston Children's Hospital, Harvard University
Autumn Webinar Series 2020
In Partnership with AMEE TEL Committee
Summary: Medical image interpretation errors are common. Fortunately, authentic images from patients with verified diagnoses can be collected with digital technology into computer libraries, and deliberate practice of image interpretation to a performance-based competency standard is possible using globally accessible electronic platforms. However, the best practices for learning and assessment from these platforms are only beginning to emerge.
Learning Objectives: 
1. Discuss image set collection and curation in service of defined educational goals.
2. Compare and contrast different on-line learning models that teach image interpretation.
3. List candidate education metrics for demonstrating visual diagnostic expertise.
4. Discuss methods for deriving competency setting standards.
Anticipated Outcomes:
Participants will be able implement the methods discussed in this session to create and present images in a format that allows deliberate practice of cases to an evidence-based performance standard.
Target Audience:
Educators who teach and measure competency of medical image interpretation skills in post-graduate trainees and health care professionals.

How to improve the evaluation of Technology Enhanced Learning interventions

Presenter: Professor John Sandars, Edge Hill University Medical School, UK
Spring Webinar Series 2021

In association with AMEE Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) Committee

Summary: Evaluations of TEL interventions mainly focus on outcomes and rarely report detailed information of the intervention or process (especially the usability). This information is essential for other educators to make decisions about adoption or adaption in their own context.

Learning Objectives:
 - Have an increased awareness of the importance of reporting process information about TEL interventions.
 - Develop core skills for designing and reporting evaluations of TEL interventions.

Anticipated Outcomes:
The intended outcome is an increase in the quality of the design and reporting of evaluations of TEL interventions.

Show & TEL: Sharing your Innovations in Health Professions Education

Presenter: Daniel Salcedo

July 2021

In association with AMEE Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) Committee

Introduction: Not all great ideas in Health Professions Education (HPE) are formatted as research projects. Educators from around the world are constantly experimenting and discovering new ways to improve how we teach and learn.

Unfortunately, it is often difficult to share theses ideas with the rest of our community. 

At AMEE we recognise the need for space where educators, students, and other health education professionals can come together to share ideas, ask questions, and give advice about learning innovations that are transforming the way we teach and learn.

AMEE Show & TEL is a multimedia blog where AMEE members can share their brilliant ideas and keep up to date with the latest trends and technologies in HPE.

Educational needs or gaps to be addressed
This webinar aims to inform the AMEE community about the new Show & TEL community engagement channel which will be launched this June.

Aim/Learning Objectives
Through this session participants will:
1. Learn about the AMEE Show & TEL platform
2. Understand what kind of content can be shared through the platform
3. Apply guidelines and content formats for posting in the Show & TEL blog
4. Ask questions and make suggestions for the continuing development of the Show & TEL platform

Anticipated Outcomes: Participants will learn more about the Show & TEL platform and enrol in the Show & TEL newsletter.
