Learning Innovation Showcase
Join us at the inaugural Learning Innovations Showcase on Thursday, August 9, 12-1pm in the UCSF Library, CL 221/222. (Remote attendance by Zoom also available.) This quarterly showcase is designed by and for the UCSF education community to create opportunities to explore innovative applications of technology in education. At the Learning Innovations Showcase, educators can come together and learn from our peers, share best practices, see demonstrations, and discover new technologies.
The topic for the August 9 Showcase is 3D Printing for Nursing Simulation, with School of Nursing Professor Annette Carley, RN, DNP, NP, Kanbar Simulation Technician Wes Cayabyab, and School of Nursing Graduate Jacklin Tong, RN. Learners and faculty in all disciplines will benefit from the discussion of collaborative projects that bring together expertise in simulation, nursing education and 3D printing to create innovative partial-task trainers used in nursing simulation.
Educational technology brings many advances and innovations to education but it also brings many challenges. New tools and strategies for teaching come to us every day, but educators seek opportunities to learn how to effectively use them, to share successes and solve problems with colleagues, and to scale innovations for broader use.
The bi-monthly monthly showcase/roundtable provides opportunities to:
- Meet others in the community and do hands on activities
- Find potential collaborators
- Attract funding, develop elevator pitches, get feedback from students and others
- Share innovative use cases of existing tools - e.g. Zoom
- Share experiments using newer tools for education - e.g. VR/AR, Raspberry Pi
- Nurture ideas that could be proposed to CET for IT Roadmap funds
Look forward to more Learning Innovation Showcases, scheduled every quarter. The Learning Innovation Showcase is a collaboration between the IT Governance Committee on Education Technology (CET) and the UCSF Library.
