Workshop Objectives By the end of this session, participants will: Discuss two strengths and limitations of online learning. Discuss two different online technologies that can be incorporated in PA education. Describe two asynchronous and two synchronous online activities. Describe three practical tips for successfully

implementing online learning. 3 Participant Demographics

Students Teachers PAs MDs Other 4 Strengths and Limitations of Online Learning

Small Group Exercise Discuss two strengths of online learning Discuss two limitations of online learning You have 3 minutes to discuss within your group. 5 Strengths and Limitations of Online Learning

Strengths Limitations 6 Strengths and Limitations of Online Learning Strengths Flexibility - time and place

Development of skills (problem solving, learning how to learn, creativity) Increases interest in learning and attention span Stimulates search for more information Promotes cooperation and collaboration More thorough assimilation of ideas

Encourages teacher-student interaction Limitations Technology failure internet, audio-visual out of sync Cost Resource intensive Time intensive Slow computers

Information is vast and rapidly expanding difficult to navigate/manage Requires high degree of organization 7 Online Technologies in Education Learner management software BlackBoard, D2L, DND Learn, Wiley Plus.

12 Content Video (clinisnips) Audio (see MacAnatomy lecture)

Podcasts Pre-Recorded lectures (MacAnatomy, Kahn Academy, iTunesU) Simulation Training (Ontario DV Taskforce) 13 Asynchronous & Synchronous Activities: Differences

Asynchronous Activities Synchronous Activities Commonly facilitated Commonly facilitated by through email and discussion media such as boards videoconferencing and chat Cognitive participation

Personal participation More flexible learning on own time Make learners feel like participants and less isolated Increased reflection & ability Increased arousal,

to process information motivation & convergence on meaning 14 Asynchronous Discussion Example - Discussion board forums Facilitator creates discussion groups Facilitator posts a question and request students to comment

Students can post their comments and new questions Collaborative learning can be fostered 15 16 Blog A discussion or informational site that consist of posts typically displayed in reverse chronological order (the

most recent post appears first). A form of asynchronous learning often associated with social networking Uses in PA Profession Interact with colleagues, CME activities & social networking Create your own Blog site: http://googleblog.blogspot.ca/ http://www.thoughts.com/ 17

Blog 18 WIKI

A Content Management System Asynchronous online tool Users can add, remove, and edit every page Holds attachments like docs, pictures, etc Flexible, prompt, collaborative & can be archived 19

Medical Education Wiki http://medicaleducation.wetpaint.com/ 20 Synchronous Discussion Example Chats (Skype, instant messaging) Facilitator can communicate with students in a live discussion More students participate

Collaborative learning Enable timely interactions (in real time) 21 Video Conference Examples: Subscribed: GoToMeeting, Blackboard Collaborate, Adobe Connect etc

Free tool Skype 22 Virtual Videos Xtranormal make your videos: http://www.xtranormal.com/ Example in Medical Ethics course

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VFea2xqe7Dg 23 Virtual Patients (VP) A specific type of computer-based program that simulates real-life clinical scenarios. Learners emulate the roles of healthcare providers Obtain a history

Conduct physical exams Make diagnostic and therapeutic decisions Counsel 24 Virtual Patient 25 Tips for Implementation

Pearls and Ideas? 26 Tips for Implementation Engage students in different learning experiences. Keep pace with technological advances. It is NOT about technology it is about interactivity!

27 Workshop Objectives By the end of this session, participants will: Discuss two strengths and limitations of online learning. Discuss two different online technologies that can be incorporated in PA education. Describe two asynchronous and two synchronous

online activities. Describe three practical tips for successfully implementing online learning. 28 Questions and Feedback 29 In case you need to contact us:
