EDolution – The Education Revolution A TEDx-inspired salon event, free admission for course leaders, teachers, students, researchers and everyone else interested in innovative approaches for effective teaching and learning. At Hörsalen Novum, Blickagången 6, KI Campus Flemingsberg on November 17:th at 1-4 PM Karolinska Institutet has a long lasting tradition in medical education and research, and is one of the most prestigious medical universities in the world. The continuous emphasis to implement novel and creative approaches in medicine strengthens the environment to attract top students and researchers, who are determined to provide innovative solutions for future health care. However, scientific progress cannot be sustained without continuous advances in education at all levels (i.e. undergraduate, doctoral and postdoctoral). As a result, educational systems need to adapt to an environment with growing technologies and rapid knowledge dissemination, and stimulate learning and development. The theme for this fourth and extended KI DevReg Salon is about new methods for education and learning. How do we create a student-centered learning environment? How can active learning stimulate deeper understanding of material? What can we as teachers and students do to facilitate effective learning? These are some of the questions we will explore in our upcoming DevReg Salon “EDolution: The Educational Revolution”. We invite everyone: course leaders, teachers, students, medical doctors, researchers and anyone else interested in innovative approaches for effective teaching and learning, to join and be a part of this experience. We will cover topics such as: - “Designing Learning” by Johanna Olsson, Learning designer & facilitator and Åsa Höistad, Program manager at Hyper Island - ”Deep Learning and Personalized Education” by Anton Osika, AI Research Engineer at Sana – AI for Education As part of the salon, you will have the opportunity to network, and share your ideas and experiences. More speakers and a detailed program will follow shortly! Snacks & refreshments will be served. To get one of the complimentary tickets and join this event, please register here before November 9th, 2017.
