Medical Educator Roles of the Future
This session will explore how near future technology can impact how we
educate healthcare professionals and the way they provide care.
The idea is to examine how “new” methods and platforms for displaying
information, engaging an audience, extending and expanding the cognitive
presence of “the instructor”, and increasingly "guide" will transform the
learning experience, and training outcomes, of our educational efforts; and
also explore how these same technologies, which will include Artiﬁcial
Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning, Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented
Reality (AR), online and re-imagined out-of-the-simulation-center skill
training experiences (inspired and modelled after gaming platforms), can
augment, enhance, and transform how we educate and train healthcare
professionals, along the whole continuum of learning, from undergraduate
learning, through postgraduate training, to lifelong learning and continuing
professional development settings.
