Breakout Workshop 5b

The future is now

Led by Suzanne Murray (AXDEV), with Celeste Kolanko (Liberum IME) and Dale Kummerle (GAME)

Learning has historically been face-to-face, from grade school through to lifelong learning in continuing professional development. The pandemic forced a virtual education environment onto the populace at all stages of education, and the evolution of learning frameworks will need to be accelerated under these new pressures. Behavioral sciences will become increasingly at the center of learning in healthcare. The new "Educator" now includes non-traditional teachers and reflect on traditional instructional design methods and they will need to be educated on utilizing these new technologies and methods. This session will present some of the highlights of the futurist forum, and expand upon themes in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. The groups will share learnings with the entire group and the presenters will reflect on potential action plans. As questions still exist, three breakouts will explore:  

  1. Future of virtual education and technology: who and how?

  2. Technology trends in lifelong learning: is virtual the best option?  

  3. Governmental and professional societies: collaboration models that include these two groups. 

 

After this session, participants should be able to:  

  • Describe how the core tenets of adult learning have changed in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

  • Create an actionable plan to assess the usefulness of their virtual technologies in CPD.
