How Moving Technology Out of Your Health Science Classroom Will Improve Student Learning


Thursday, February 11, 2016
12 – 1 p.m.
(Lunch will be available at 11:30 a.m.)


School of Medicine
B Instructional Building
Room 215

Technology is changing higher education, but the greatest value of a physical university will remain its face-to-face ("naked") interaction between faculty and students. Technology has fundamentally changed our relationship to knowledge and this increases the value of critical thinking, but we need to redesign our health science courses to deliver this value. The most important benefits to using technology occur outside of the classroom. Join Dr. José Antonio Bowen as he explains the proponents and value of “teaching naked.”

Whether you teach in medicine, dentistry, nursing, or public health, you will find value in this thought-provoking presentation about 21st century teaching.

About the HSC-Delphi Faculty Development Partnership:

Established in June 2011, the HSC-Delphi Faculty Development Partnership seeks to:

  • Enhance teaching and learning on UofL's Health Sciences Campus by providing meaningful and relevant professional development opportunities for faculty;
  • Share unit resources to promote campus-wide conversations about best practices in teaching and learning in the health sciences; and
  • Address accreditation calls for continuous quality improvement to the curriculum by offering participants concrete teaching strategies and "take-aways" for immediate implementation and relevant resources to foster further exploration and learning.

The partnership steering committee is comprised of unit representatives from Medicine, Nursing, Dentistry, the School of Public Health and Information Sciences (SPHIS), and the Delphi Center for Teaching and Learning. With support from the deans of each school, the steering committee works together to deliver two significant professional development programs for HSC faculty annually.
