A Disruptive Connector: Learning & Experimenting with Generative AI Together - June 11

Recorded On: 06/11/2024

This webinar, hosted by the Group on Information Resources (GIR), was presented as a poster at the 2024 Information Technology in Academic Medicine Conference in New Orleans. Because of its timely focus, it was chosen to be put forth as part our GIR Programming that this Group hosts throughout the year. Below is the description of what participants will learn about during this webinar, and there will be time for Q&A at the end.

Experiential learning is essential to foster a digital mindset and adaptive expertise in applying generative AI to teaching and learning. In this dynamic environment, where human and machine interactions are accelerating, we must maintain focus on collaborative intelligence and fusion skill development to facilitate building digital capabilities. Leveraging the power of technology, we can come together globally to learn from each other, seek support and collaborate through synchronous and asynchronous means.

In this webinar, participants will learn how collaborators from Mayo Clinic and Karolinska Institutet worked together to provide an opportunity for international medical educators to learn with and from one another about generative AI while using generative AI in a supportive, inclusive environment. They leveraged experiential learning to foster digital mindsets and adaptive expertise while wrestling with non-linear, complex challenges facing medical education. More than 450 colleagues from over 30 different geographical locations registered for the event; many of whom participated in one or more of the three synchronous virtual sessions. A dynamic resource rich website was created to encourage continuous engagement and co-construction of knowledge and skills beyond the 24 hours of the event.
