Jill Hamilton-Reeves (SHP: Dietetics and Nutrition) – Students disseminating knowledge gained to a diverse and interested readership via Wikipedia
Jill Hamilton-Reeves, faculty in the SHP - KU Department of Dietetics and Nutrition, collaborated with Sonny Painter (SHP-TLT) to progress students beyond the basic scientific presentation. Students took the information learned in a gap analysis assignment earlier in the semester and were asked to disseminate the knowledge gained to a diverse and interested readership via Wikipedia. Sonny Painter helped design the rubric and provided valuable resources to help design the best way to assess the students’ work. If you'd like to promote your students’ telling the world about what they’ve learned to help society, you'll get several guidelines of how to implement Wikipedia in order to portray student work to a non-scientific audience.
LaVerne Manos (SoN) and Christina Magnifico (SoM) – Google Glass and in situ simulation
LaVerne, Christina, and the HRSA Interprofessional Collaborative Acute Care Practice ICAP--Peds Project Team-along with all those who care for pediatric patients directly or indirectly--are using Google Glass technology. We are using the audio/video recording functionality of Google Glass for clinical and student teams to review and enhance communication skills. Our grant team is also exploring in situ simulation (simulation utilized during the workday in the workplace) interactions recorded from the eyes of a patient by utilizing the video functionality of Google Glass with Standardized Patients playing the role of a grandparent while participating in a scenario with caregivers while wearing the glass. Utilizing the glass with a standardized patient during in situ simulation gives a new perspective from the “patients” viewpoint. The recordings are then reviewed for debriefing of teams on how they performed during in situ simulations with a focus on structured standardized communication.
