Design Challenge-Bridging the Education Gap

The EMBER Project’s Design Challenge is on!  We want to bridge the education gap, move beyond just a few adopters of FOAM, and encourage physician educators of all levels to integrate key concepts of 21st century learning into their tool box.

So we will be challenging our residents and faculty to throw away their Powerpoint slides, learn about new tools, and create core EM content that best embodies the spirit of teaching for 21st century learners. The design challenge has already begun and will culminate in an eight-hour workshop to help you develop and complete your ideas. The deadline for posting submissions on Google+ is 3pm August 19th. A panel will select the best examples of innovative EM FOAM content and highlight them on our blog.

Ahead of the day I’ve been curating many original and inspirational examples of EM FOAM content and the tools used to build them here on Flipboard (two of them are used in this post). For more on what this is all about listen to the podcast link below and check out the rules here.

Sorry this is only open to our residents and faculty, but the winners of the challenge will have their work and ideas highlighted here, so I’m looking forward to presenting some great EM FOAM content next week. If your one of our residents or faculty don’t forget to RSVP at the Google Event link so we can make sure there is enough food for everyone.
