From Personalised Learning To Mastery of Competencies: Impact of Technology and Simulation On Health Professionals


Through innovation and the use of existing and emergent technologies, Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) has introduced novel tools to the training of health professionals in developing, mastering and maintaining the essential knowledge, skills and attitude necessary for safe and effective patient care.

Simulation has been evolving rapidly in the recent years, from manikin-based simulation to the newer technologies including augmented reality and more. Both TEL and simulation offer unlimited opportunities for educators to engage learners from diverse backgrounds and distributed learning sites, and enhances student learning experience in many ways including personalised learning. This conference will be a platform for the stakeholders of health professions education to exchange experience and innovative ideas in the use of technology and simulation in their teaching practice. The highlights include instructional design, outcomes assessment, inter-professional education, cross-border education and healthcare practice using technology. In relation to these, the regulatory perspectives, effectiveness, challenges and strategies to overcome them will be discussed.
