“Personalized learning: Lessons taken from healthcare."

Steve Brown

Session Information

Year: 2016 | Time: 4:15pm-5:45pm (Poster Session) | Location: (Fenwick 2nd Floor) Poster Session


Both education and healthcare are going through rapid changes in their delivery.   Adapting the concepts from the TED talk, “Health care should be a team sport”, by Eric Dishman, this presentation focuses on his bold and creative ideas in reinventing healthcare and applies them to education.  Adapting Dishman’s concepts would lead to a world of “learning anywhere; learning networking; and learning customization”, with a focused role of the responsible student at the center.   The learning technologies of today can make this a reality. 

Participants can use these concepts and will be shown practical steps to integrate these strategies in to their own courses, and/or reflect upon and shape their own teaching philosophy.
