school of nursingA collaborative effort of the Hopkins schools of Medicine, Nursing, Public Health, and Johns Hopkins Hospital nursing administration will bring together experts in instructional technology for a dynamic day of presentations and interactive sessions.

“Teaching with Technology Fair 2012: Collaboration in Health Professions Education,” Thursday, May 17, 8:30 am-4:30 pm, Johns Hopkins Medical Campus Armstrong Building, kicks off with a keynote presentation by Jason Farman, PhD, Assistant Professor of American Studies at University of Maryland. Farman, a digital cultures researcher, will address how the worldwide adoption of mobile technologies is causing a reexamination of the core ideas about what it means to live our everyday lives: the practice of embodied space. Other highlights of the fair include a faculty showcase (featuring faculty from across Hopkins); a working luncheon focusing on interprofessional education; several concurrent sessions focusing on simulation education, technology tools in the classroom, and others; and a concluding panel discussion on emerging opportunities for collaboration. 

“This is a unique opportunity to gather experts not only from Hopkins, but from other institutions of higher education from the metropolitan Baltimore area to present data, demonstrate new and emerging technologies, and most importantly, take away information that can be applied in the classroom,” said Anne Belcher, PhD, RN, FAAN, director of the Office for Teaching Excellence at the School of Nursing.
