Workshop: Technology-Enhanced Learning

Date/Time
23 May, Wednesday, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Venue
NUS, Centre for Translational Medicine (MD6), Level 1, #01-01B
Description

Technology-Enhanced Learning is everywhere with the influx of new technology and has become an accepted educational tool and platform to support and augment teaching and learning in health professions education. To keep up with what’s changing (and what isn’t), educators must know where to look. Although technology-enhanced learning in health professions education has demonstrated positive learning outcomes, promotes interaction between students/trainees and instructors, and positive assessment outcomes, significant body of research has shown that most teachers have been slow to transform the ways they teach.

Workshop: Qualitative Research Methods in Health Professions Education

Date/Time
24 May, Thursday, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Venue
NUS, Centre for Translational Medicine (MD6), Level 1, #01-01B
Description

Qualitative methods are powerful tools to help educational researchers to develop theory, evaluate programs, and design educational interventions. Using qualitative methods, you can collect in depth information that you cannot obtain with quantitative methods. Qualitative methods are used to study human behavior and behavior changes, which are not well captured by quantitative techniques. The purpose of this workshop is to guide researchers in designing and implementing qualitative research projects. An overview of qualitative research design will be provided along with general recommendations for developing research questions, formulating a hypothesis, analyzing qualitative data, and validating the results.
