How the University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine is transforming how students learn

[Music] by this year 2020 medical knowledge is doubling every 73 days every moment we spend with them has to be high-value we have to really be training master learners not master memorizers when we had the opportunity to build this new facility it really gave us an opportunity to rethink medical education we wanted to build a technology platform in a building that would support potentially decades of innovation in the future when you have active learning and you’re engaging their mind we know that they don’t have to study as much later so anything that you can do to make that material easier to grasp I think is really important but it was critical that we knew we were using technological tools that were perfect fits to that pedagogics eerie that educational theory and that led naturally to Microsoft our initial design in this building was actually very traditional we had monitors on the walls around the classrooms we moved away from that we pulled the technology into the room and used a surface hub to’s to really build a platform that could move throughout the building hubs can be used in a conference room they could go up to a director’s office or they could stay there and support the learning in that space the building has been designed in terms of space with lots of small group learning technology infused within those to allow for collaborating around hubs and white boards etc exactly as we envisioned the surface hub is intended for you to interact with and so that a layout of a room is completely different to encourage adoption of that technique we have an experience or learning lab on the third floor of the building where the walls can actually be moved around and you can construct whatever space you need trying to make things more engaged more active technology creates behavior and space enables behavior and so bringing those two things together to really help focus on adoption of technologies students be able to join in into a classroom experience no matter where they are how we selected Microsoft teams for that you can be in multiple small group sessions simultaneously you can be in your lab and teach you a small group it expands and leverages our faculty in a way that makes it much more efficient vision for teams really is to deliberately allow more synchronous and asynchronous learning embedded into our DNA is this concept of continuous quality improvement understanding how the human brain works and understanding how we learn more efficiently and effectively again leveraging technology being innovative is really about how do you simplify delegate to the computer world which should be delegated to the computer world and then what happens is then the human beings have the time-space energy to be doing the things that human beings are really good at [Music] you
