Enhancing Health Care Education and Practice Post COVID
Healthcare education and practice has significantly been impacted by COVID-19. This includes the challenge on pedagogical approaches that highlight the potential of technology to facilitate innovative new approaches in response to social distancing, lockdowns, remote learning and improving the patient experience and positive outcomes. Many of these innovative approaches are not fundamentally new but are now seeing relevance beyond early adopters to mainstream implementation. This presentation draws upon collaborations with educational researchers and technologists that have explored the integration of technology into healthcare education and practice and will highlight three outcomes: enabling opportunities for innovation in teaching and learning in response to COVID-19, interprofessional collaboration through design-based research, identification of design principles in response to COVID-19.
