Getting the most out of your Simulation Debriefing using AV Capture and Smart Boards

Wes Cayabayab, Kanbar Simulation Technician
Rich Fung, Kanbar Simulation Technician
Sandrijn van Schaik, Associate Professor of Clinical Education

The Kanbar Center not only has state-of-the-art simulation mannequins, but a variety of other technologies that can enhance the effectiveness of simulation-based learning. In this hands-on session, participants will engage with the AV capture technology in our simulation center and practice using a so-called “smart board” or electronic whiteboards during debriefing. In addition we will discuss how our B-Line Medical “simbridge” tool can be utilized for later review and reflection. At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to: Debrief a simulation with direct video playback; Effectively use a smart board during debriefing; Provide learners with on-line access to simulation videos for later review


State of Computer-Based Testing at UCSF

Kylie Leung, Education Coordinator, Pharmacy
Peter Weber, Education Coordinator, Pharmacy

With many national exams adopting computer-based formats: Bar, ACT (Spring 2015), and MCATs; along with colleges and universities implementing computer-based testing for in-class and at-home testing, CBT is quickly becoming the standard testing format of the 21st Century. At its best, computer-based testing offers efficient grading, robust performance metrics, secure testing environments, and interactive, responsive assessment options. At its most challenging, CBT creates anxiety for exam takers and administrators about technical failings during the exam, inconsistent user experience when taken on different devices, and new opportunities for academic dishonesty.

This session will focus on CBT options, address challenges, and highlight best practices, exploring the different methods that have been used by UCSF's schools of Medicine, Pharmacy, Nursing and Dentistry.

Integrating Standardized Patients into Mannequin based simulation- An Introduction to Hybrid Simulation

Wes Cayabayab, Kanbar Simulation Technician
Bernie Miller, Standardized Patient Program Director

Standardized participants can greatly enhance high-fidelity simulation. By creating so-called hybrid simulations, the educational experience becomes more realistic than with the use of a simulation mannequin alone. This session will explore how standardized patients are the missing link and can be integrated in mannequin-based simulations. The introduction of a human being into these simulations will result in higher realism and adds opportunities for evaluation of learners’ interpersonal and communication skills. Through video and live demonstration, we will review how standardized patients can be utilized in hybrid simulations. At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to: Integrate standardized patients with mannequin based simulation; train standardized patients how to interact with mannequins to deliver a higher realism to the simulation case.


Web Conferencing for Education: WebEx at UCSF

Dylan Romero, Learning Technologies Group
Najla Farzana, IT Infrastructure and Development
Annette Carley, Clinical Professor, UCSF School of Nursing

As part of UCSF’s unified communication plan, all of us will have access to WebEx, a multi-functional desktop video/audio conference call application, allowing you to meet with anyone, anywhere, in real time. For those of you who used Blackboard Collaborate, you will find that WebEx offers all the capabilities you need to conduct web conferencing as part of your course. WebEx Meeting Center features HD video and online chat, as well as all of the tools you need to share presentations and desktop applications, write on online whiteboards, and make annotations. Learn how easily you can use WebEx for conducting office hours, facilitating online courses via the Collaborative Learning Environment (CLE), and recording a training. This session will give an overview of the new UCSF WebEx system and highlight some of its most useful features for educational activities.

Assessment and Evaluation during Simulations using iPads, Qualtrics and QR codes

Rich Fung, Kanbar Simulation Technician
Sandrijn van Schaik, Associate Professor of Clinical Education
Michael Quirk, Kanbar Center Manager

We all know that we should assess our learners and evaluate our teaching, but how do you fit it all in? You want to avoid piles of papers, but electronic surveys get low response rates? Come to this practical workshop where we will demonstrate how you can integrate iPads available at the Kanbar Center into a simulation session for assessment and evaluation, and practice creating tools in qualtrics and using QR codes for quick access. At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to: Create an assessment or evaluation tool using Qualtrics; Use QR codes for quick and direct access to on-line tools; Integrate iPad use for assessment and evaluation during simulation sessions

Mobile Technology: Opportunities and Challenges for Learning

Peter O’Hara, PhD, Professor in Residence, UCSF Dept. of Anatomy
Our students (and faculty!) are increasingly mobile and rely on tablets and smart phones to access information. Essential resources such as anatomical atlases have robust iPad versions, our own Collaborative Learning Environment is now mobile-compatible, but is accessing information the only use of the mobile platform? Are there opportunities to use mobile platforms, and the applications that have been developed for them, to support your teaching goals? Have you ever said “I wish there was a way to….” Can mobile technology be the answer? If we decide there is value in using these resources, what are the challenges of these technologies and how can we address them as a campus? This session will provide an overview of the capabilities of, and resources being developed for, mobile technology, while helping identify ways to use this technology in teaching.


Lunch Break



Brave New World of Telepresence at UCSF

John DeAngelo, Director of Education Technology Services (ETS)
Benjamin Wallen, Principal AV Technician

This session will focus on recent additions to the learning environment at Mission Bay and planned changes at Parnassus. See first-hand teaching spaces at Mission Hall while never leaving your seats in the TLC, and learn how UCSF plans to create a critical mass in techno-education to match its international reputation as a medical education leader.

Flipped Classrooms: Reports from the Trenches

Christian Burke, Assistant Director, Technology Enhanced Learning
Jaekyu Shin, Associate Professor of Clinical Pharmacy

Marieke Kruidering, Associate Professor, School of Medicine
The flipped classroom provides students with access to lecture material before class and repurposes classroom time for more interactive pursuits, such as case-based discussions. Faculty in our schools of Medicine and Pharmacy will describe their forays into this new mode of teaching, including their objectives for flipping, how they restructured the classroom time, and student response to this new format. Jaekyu Shin from the School of Pharmacy will discuss the CP121 Therapeutics course, which included weekly online lectures and quizzes in combination with case-based classroom discussions. Marieke Kruidering and other School of Medicine faculty will discuss their strategies for flipping some lectures in the Brain, Mind and Behavior course and how their pilot has become a model for other courses in the school.

Keynote Presentation: Embodied Design

Dor Abrahamson, PhD
Associate Professor, Graduate School of Education, UC Berkeley
Director, Embodied Design Research Laboratory
Join us for a provocative discussion of the concept of embodied design -- a pedagogical framework based on the theory that cognition is grounded in bodily experience and therefore students can develop their understanding of complex and seemingly abstract concepts through physically grounded learning activities.  Dr. Abrahamson's work focuses on creating learning environments and activities that steer learners to discover, refine, and practice physical actions that solve specific problems as a way to understand larger concepts. He often uses simple technology to create these physical opportunities to learn. Imagine students learning acid-base balance by moving their hands to see the result of proportionate changes on a video screen; a deeper meaning is grasped through embodying the understanding. Dr. Abrahamson’s work leads us to consider how the physical act of creating and exploring new ideas contributes to learning.
