April 18, 2013 Meeting Notes

If you are available this afternoon (3:30 PM, G010 Bondurant), you may enjoy the Medical Education Technology Committee.  James Saltzman will briefly speak with us on “How does the physical classroom impact distance learning and asynchronous learning.”  Then we will discuss the components of the 2013 Horizon Report and its relevance to medical education:

  • MOOCs
  • Tablet Computing
  • Gaming
  • Analytics
  • 3D Printing
  • Wearable Technology


The report may be found at https://www.dropbox.com/sh/bz4xta08nnlzal7/UjUPNzVu3O

Dennis Schmidt will be there to talk about the new laptop options, and we can continue considering learning analytics (i.e., how Echo 360 can determine which parts of lecture capture are accessed most often so that faculty get feedback).

The NMC Horizon Report > 2013 Higher Education Edition is a collaborative effort between the NMC and the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI), an EDUCAUSE Program.
The tenth edition describes annual findings from the NMC Horizon Project, a decade-long research project designed to identify and describe emerging technologies likely to have an impact on learning, teaching, and creative inquiry in higher education. Six emerging technologies are identified across three adoption horizons over the next one to five years, as well as key trends and challenges expected to continue over the same period, giving campus leaders and practitioners a valuable guide for strategic technology planning.
