Description: Education and Social Media naturally fit together. The Innovative Medical Education track will focus beyond the usual twitter and blogging topics to dive into novel techniques and strategies that can be applied on a daily basis in curriculum, group and project communications and teaching. This is a highly interactive session with small rotating stations to ensure you will leave the I-Med Track able to directly apply what you have learned. We will be covering technology such as Slack, Google hangouts, shared online documents, audience response systems and much much more. We will also be showcasing the top three Medical Innovation Abstracts. This is not to be missed!

Learning Objectives:

  1. Gain exposure to novel techniques and strategies in education, curriculum building, group and project communication.
  2. Understand how and when to use the novel technology and techniques.
  3. Directly apply the novel technology and techniques in future group communication, education and curricular design.
