Pre-conference workshop
Title
How to use data (analytics) to inform eTeaching and eLearning Goh Poh Sun (GPS), Sergio Hernandez-Marin (SHM), Lim Wee Khee (LWK)

Objectives
To illustrate and demonstrate the utility of off the shelf/free(ly available) data analytics to inform eTeaching and give visibility of eLearning (activities) by our students.

Workshop description
The workshop will be based on actual case studies from an experienced medical educator (GPS), who has been using Google Blogger (with in built data analytics), exclusively (rather than PowerPoint) for clinical teaching, and medical education faculty development over the last 6 years (in undergraduate, postgraduate and CME/CPD settings). Co-facilitators in the workshop (SHM and LWK) will share added insights from a technical-strategic (SHM) and market-engagement (LWK) perspective. Participants will have the opportunity to build their own prototype teaching blog (with use of Google Blogger as an illustrative freely available, and free to use platform), together with seeing how embedding additional online tools into a teaching blog (like Slideshare, SurveyMonkey, and Padlet) can give educators further data and visibility of student engagement, and actual learning within an eLearning process and platform. Participants will be expected to have engaged in one to two hours of pre-reading, and a pre-workshop exercise. Participants should bring a WiFi enabled laptop or tablet computer to the workshop.

Who should attend
Health professions educators (Medical, Nursing and Allied Health), and staff who have an administrative and leadership role in supporting and working with eLearning/Technology enhanced learning teams.








Main conference symposium
Title
Using data (analytics) to inform eTeaching and eLearning Goh Poh Sun (GPS), Sergio Hernandez-Marin (SHM), Lim Wee Khee (LWK)

Brief description of session
The central thesis of this symposium will be to demonstrate and illustrate how data (analytics) can inform an educational practitioner (in their educational practice), and anchor scholarly teaching and educational scholarship.
The three panelists bring (to the audience) long standing practical frontline and academic experience in their roles as a clinical teacher and in medical education faculty development (GPS), in data analytics and strategic thinking (SHM), and in the real world application of social media analytics in business (LWK).
This interactive symposium and panel discussion (with the audience) will be anchored by a purpose built dedicated presentation online blog (for approximately 30 minutes to one hour of pre-session online review BEFORE the session), each symposium presenter giving a (maximum) 10 minute short overview presentation, followed by ONE HOUR of interactive live discussion (during the session) with the audience (who should bring a WiFi enabled mobile phone, Tablet or Laptop to the session to engage with the panelists - both synchronously and asynchronously, the day before, during, and day after the symposium).

Opening comments for the pre-conference workshop, and main conference symposium 
by Poh Sun
first draft on October 11, 2017 at 0900am (updated on Oct 12, 2017 at 0445am; and October 13, 2017 at 0345am)

How to use, and Using data (analytics) to inform eTeaching and eLearning
or
Why before How, and What

In this workshop, and conference symposium, we will focus our attention mainly at an individual, small group, and class level, in a local and localised context, the micro level (lecturer-content-student ←→ student); while discussing more generally how data insights (analytics) scale up at the meso (institutional), and macro (global) level. Our intention is to introduce, and anchor new, and key ideas using analogies and case examples familiar to the majority of this audience (at the conference), while encouraging you to reflect on your own experience, and consider how to translate, and transfer these ideas to your own practice.

We will start out with a few assumptions. From our own experience (as teachers, and students), supported by evidence from the educational and training literature. That we need to know our students and trainees. Their learning and training needs and requirements. Their background. Capabilities and skills. Knowledge base. Motivation. That students and trainees who are interested, and engaged learn better. That attendance, and effort, on a regular and cumulate basis correlates with better learning outcomes and performance. More effort, training harder, longer, on a more regular basis, leads to better, and higher levels of performance. That active, interactive, constructive, contextual, and reflective learning activities and behaviours lead to better outcomes. Learn, practice and apply, with self-reflection, and peer, as well as instructor feedback (and feedback from intelligent, scripted (test-feedback), and AI or artificial intelligence imbued systems).

Let's briefly examine the traditional "classroom" or "class", and compare and contrast this with a digital class, or "flipped classroom" format, where digital and face to face student-learning material/activities-teacher engagement and interaction takes place.

Let's also examine this topic using a foundation of educational pedagogy and learning science, as well as illustrate this with concrete examples that all of us are familiar with, as both teachers, and students (yes, we were all former students and trainees, and are still, and should be, learning). Let's also lighten up the discussion, using culinary analogies, that we are all familiar with, and many of us are passionate about (food, the dining experience, food preparation, the culinary arts and science).

Our aim as teachers is, and should be primarily to not only "teach" and instruct our students and trainees, but also to create the conditions which encourage, promote and support independent, and ongoing learning; recognising that our students progress from undergraduate learning, through postgraduate training, to lifelong learning phases.

This includes preparing, and selecting or curating learning material, now invariably in digital formats (though print still has a distinct role for "deeper" reads, slower reads, and potentially more memorable experience); and creating the conditions to promote learning, and "transfer" of knowledge, skills and "feeling", attitudes and opinions about topics, themes, and market relevant and valuable skills (from classroom to workplace, from theory to practice, and ongoing performance, by reflective, ever improving practitioners).

How do we know, as teachers, that we are succeeding in this endeavor?
What evidence, indicators, and "metrics" can we use?
What data, both performance, and observational can we rely on?

We know from the educational literature that time, effort, and reflective practice, with feedback is required to learn, and acquire knowledge, skills, and professional behaviors and attitudes. In a traditional classroom setting a teacher relies on a (deep) knowledge of the background, learning capacity, motivation, and developmental/learning stage of each student and trainee; as part of an ongoing, iterative process. With the increasing use, and reliance on digital content, and engagement platforms to not only deliver content to our students, but also anchor the learning and training process, we (as teachers) can take advantage of data (ongoing, and live/real-time) to give us insights not only into our students/student cohorts, but also to help us in our role as teachers, preparing and curating material, using and highlighting this material, to adapt our teaching and training process, and both personalize the educational experience, as well as offer the possibility of learning-on-demand, self-service learning and training, either one-off, modular, or in a longer term programmatic learning and training process.

Let's use a specific example to illustrate this, case-based learning in undergraduate, and postgraduate medical education and training. This educational paradigm was initially developed at the Harvard Business School, and subsequently adopted by medical schools (as problem based learning, initially at McMaster University) and postgraduate medical training programs.

The aim of case-based learning is to illustrate the application of basic science to clinical practice, and give undergraduates the opportunity to see how these ideas translate to clinical practice. For more senior medical students, and postgraduate trainees, a series of clinical problems, or "cases" are presented for both thematic, and topic based practice, as well as in a mixed, random format. The idea of presenting a spectrum of clinical problems, in both similar and contrasting manner, is to mimic real-life clinical practice, and illustrate not only typical, "classic" and exemplar cases, but also those clinical scenarios with exaggerated, or less obvious, subtle features, throughout the clinical spectrum, as well as look-alike's and similar appearing, but different diagnostic categories. In order for an undergraduate, and postgraduate trainee to take full advantage of the educational and training potential of each clinical case, teachers require not only insight and information about the previous experience of each student and trainee, but also their performance level, and level of engagement at each step of the educational and training process. Teachers and instructors are also required to provide additional learning and reference material, (interactive) FAQs checklists (increasingly in the future educational "Chatbots"), and customisable, and self-selectable learning and training pathways, with personalized, curated, relevant, and useful material, and feedback on performance; as well as providing opportunities for exploratory and discovery learning. Providing visibility of the level, degree, and form of engagement of each student and trainee with the educational content, and performance with each training activity is the aim of the educational and training process. Data (analytics) has a role to add to, and supplement live classroom, and physical observation by teachers and instructors.

Learning, like exercise, is an ideally habitual, regular, cumulative, daily activity; which includes many of the following steps - exposure, time commitment, active engagement with both material, and use of this material (note taking, asking questions, reflections-recall-integrative activities, problem solving and assignments, interactive and group activities, student-instructor and student-student interactions, i.e learn, practice and apply; with feedback and reflection. Regularly. Iteratively. Simultaneously building a foundation, and engaging with more complex ideas, tasks, and activities.

We can use data, by tracking online behaviour (webpage analytics, data and analysis - location, individual participation, frequency and time spent, what material is engaged with, in what sequence), intermediate and "final" learning and training outcomes (textual analytics, data and analysis - note taking, questions and answers, discussion points - through participation on discussion forums, bulletin boards, peer feedback-peer evaluation-peer critique activities; as well as individual, group and team assignments and projects, through submissions on online bulletin boards and posting spaces, and tracked collaborative working, wiki-like spaces). Focusing on student and trainee participation, engagement, and activities - frequency, duration, quantity and quality, growth and development; or how often, for how long, how much, how good, how persistent, and evidence of professional development and growth (increasing insightful, complex, integrative thinking; and performance of individual and team based skills).

What is the role of the teacher and instructor in this learning process, and journey? We can assist by creating the conditions which will encourage, facilitate and promote learning (deep rather than superficial); go beyond "suggestions" and "recommendations" (you might like ..... or find useful ....) to providing training plans, and learning paths (with content, and activities, which build on each other, and involve individual, group and team based activities); providing timely feedback, support and encouragement, to continue and take regular, daily, sequential, cumulative steps along the learning and discovery journey. Think of the analogy of the walk, hike, and climb.

Let's now explore and examine evidence for, and against the utility of learning analytics from the LACE Evidence Hub.

Example of the use of online cases in a radiology residency tutorial above: For a spot quiz followed by case review and feedback (using 10 cases from http://www.learningchestradiology.blogspot.sg/)

15 minute spot quiz in our "internet cafe" which has 30 plus workstations - on 10 online Chest Radiology cases (CXR +/- selected CT sections)

Each resident emails brief statement of the diagnosis and also justification for this diagnosis for each case to the instructor (standing in photo)
(This allows each resident to individually engage with, and give an opinion on each CXR
which reflects what radiologists actually do on a day to day basis)

This is then followed by a group discussion of each case with the instructor

The pedagogical principles underpinning this practice are
1. active learning, with authentic real world case examples (self-testing), + feedback (targeted, personalised - face to face/group/asynchronous to email submissions)
2. a platform for distributed practice (spreading out practice sessions)
3. mixed (or interleaved) practice (see below)











Message to participants:

I will be presenting directly from a website (weblink below). All the material will be available for review by participants before, during and after the session. 


May I request that all participants bring along a WiFi enabled device, so that you can follow the presentation directly from your mobile device. Please log-in to the WiFi network before the presentation starts, have the presentation website loaded onto your device, and test that this website loads properly on your device before the session starts.

Thank you.

With warmest regards,

"Technology enhanced learning or eLearning allows educators to expand access to educational content, promotes engagement with students and makes it easier for students to access educational material at a time, place and pace which suits them. The challenge for educators beginning their eLearning journey is to decide where to start, which includes the choice of an eLearning tool and platform. This article will share one educator's decision making process, and experience using blogs as a flexible and versatile integrated eLearning tool and platform. Apart from being a cost effective/free tool and platform, blogs offer the possibility of creating a hyperlinked indexed content repository, for both created and curated educational material; as well as a distribution and engagement tool and platform. Incorporating pedagogically sound activities and educational practices into a blog promote a structured templated teaching process, which can be reproduced. Moving from undergraduate to postgraduate training, educational blogs supported by a comprehensive online case-based repository offer the possibility of training beyond competency towards proficiency and expert level performance through a process of deliberate practice. By documenting educational content and the student engagement and learning process, as well as feedback and personal reflection of educational sessions, blogs can also form the basis for a teaching portfolio, and provide evidence and data of scholarly teaching and educational scholarship. Looking into the future, having a collection of readily accessible indexed hyperlinked teaching material offers the potential to do on the spot teaching with illustrative material called up onto smart surfaces, and displayed on holographic interfaces."

"By reviewing research on medical performance and education, the author describes evidence for these representations and their development within the expert- performance framework. He uses the research to generate suggestions for improved training of medical students and professionals. Two strategies— designing learning environments with libraries of cases and creating opportunities for individualized teacher-guided training—should enable motivated individuals to acquire a full set of refined mental representations. Providing the right resources to support the expert- performance approach will allow such individuals to become self-regulated learners—that is, members of the medical community who have the tools to improve their own and their team members’ performances throughout their entire professional careers.'

"Time on task

It takes time to learn anything worthwhile. To accumulate knowledge and skills. To integrate this new learning, and be able to, and be confident applying this in the workplace, and real life settings.

This is the difference between undertaking a program of training, and formal courses, compared with short symposia and workshops, or an isolated lecture. Formal training programs gives students time, space, and a place to learn. On a regular basis. This promotes a cumulative increase in learning. Combining theoretical learning with practical case studies integrates basic principles with practice points, and promotes transfer of learning from the classroom to the real world. Online learning programs should include elements from traditional classroom practices which facilitate learning. This includes scheduled time to review the learning material, to work on applying what is learnt by working on assessments and assignments, individually and by learning collaboratively with peers; as well as provide opportunities for timely feedback from instructors."
