Lightning Talks: Education Track - Learning Beyond the Meeting & Healthcare Track - Playing well with others in a virtual, gig-economy, sort of way

  • 12:30PM - 1:30PM | Capital Factory House
  • Presented by Cisco

Education Track: Learning is no longer defined as a one-hour block of time in a classroom on Monday/Wednesday/Friday. The paradigm of anytime/anywhere learning is fully embraced by today's learners. Further, their expectation is that learning is individualized and differentiated for their needs and goals. This creates some inherent challenges for the teacher or faculty member delivering instruction. How do I respond when questions arise? What content and pacing schedule do I need to follow so that learning is inclusive? Is it possible to differentiate assessment and make it authentic for the learners? In this conversation, we'll explore how Cisco tools can work with a variety of education ecosystem tools to provide faculty and their learners with an accessible, technology-transparent experience that spans what happens before, during and after the "live" classroom meeting. Healthcare Track: "How do you get work done effectively in a world where the people you work with don't work in the same office, city or even timezone? How do you build strong teams based on trust and camaraderie with folks that may never have shaken hands before? How do you deliver the results you need if you don't have the above? In this session, we'll talk about how to think about work in this new world. How to leverage technology to your advantage, but still maintaining the necessary elements of human touch to get work done. You can't replace everything with software, so let's talk about what you can and should!"
