“Personalized Learning: Lessons Taken from Healthcare."


  • Steve Brown George Mason University Dept. of Health Administration and Policy




Both education and healthcare are going through rapid changes in their delivery.   Adapting the concepts from the TED talk, âHealth care should be a team sportâ, by Eric Dishman, this presentation focuses on his bold and creative ideas in reinventing healthcare and applies them to education.  Adapting Dishmanâs concepts would lead to a world of âlearning anywhere; learning networking; and learning customizationâ, 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.
