BLOOMINGTON, Ind.March 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The Association for Educational Communications and Technology announced a webinar series addressing the challenges faced by education programs transitioning to online learning approaches. The series features education leaders from around the world and is open to AECT members and non-members at no cost.

“AECT is an organization that has a nearly 100-year history in pioneering instructional design approaches to maximize the use of technology for learning,” said Dr. Michael Grant, AECT president and professor at the University of South Carolina. “We are quickly mobilizing our member network to serve as a resource for education programs around the world. It’s important that our members, who are leaders in the field, rise to this challenge as both education and the world in general teeter because of a global pandemic.”

“I’ve been impressed with Dr. Grant’s leadership in conceiving of and quickly launching a webinar series that will be useful for the many educators around the world who are facing one of the profound challenges in their history,” said Dr. Phillip Harris, AECT executive director. “Dr. Grant and his team have moved at warp speed to launch this series with our members around the world, and I’m confident it can help many. Some are prepared for the teaching challenges presented by the pandemic, but many are not.”

STC WEBINAR

What does change look like in health care settings? How can systems thinking be applied to improve outcomes of care where resources are scarce? How can one navigate the process in a global setting?

The Systems Thinking and Change Division is pleased to have Dr. Miguela Caniza, Director of the Global Infectious Diseases Program at the Department of Global Pediatric Medicine at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, address these issues in a webinar on Tuesday September 24, 2019, 2:00- 3:00 pm, Central Standard Time.

During the webinar, Dr. Caniza will share a systems thinking process aimed at improving the care and prevention of infections in a resource-limited setting. After a needs assessment of a selected site, conducted through conversations and a visit to the institution, priorities were identified. Then, on-site personnel were trained and empowered to lead change and sustain improvement. A step-by-step process was followed during the needs assessment, the early implementation, and throughout the program evaluation, breaking each process into separate elements for best management. Dr. Caniza will  reflect on the methodology followed and the results obtained.

Please join us and use the links below to confirm your attendance and to access the webinar. See you then!
