Transcript of Education Informatics

Education Informatics at CUMC CCNMTL is a unique service enterprise that creates new tools for teaching and learning and researches their implementation. Design Research is the methodology behind our efforts, supporting the exploration, development and application of digital technologies to enhance education at the University.

Through an iterative cycle of research, development and assessment, CCNMTL and its faculty partners experiment with innovative uses of technology within university courses and generate advanced knowledge in the field of new media teaching and learning. Pedagogy Active Learning Self-directed Learning Collaboration Reflection In addition to viewing glass slides with traditional microscopes, students now have access to the Online Laboratory Manual
A Web-based interface that allows them to view high- resolution histological slides online.
CCNMTL collaborated with the CUMTIT to coordinate the installation and configuration of the technology, created by Aperio, a company specializing in digital pathology management systems.

College of Physicians and Surgeons The Image Annotation Tool (IAT) is web-based application designed for students and faculty to upload, organize, categorize, present and annotate digital images.
The IAT provides students with a workspace equipped with tools to study images.
Students can annotate and organize images into meaningful categories to support their individual study of the course content.
For faculty, the IAT enables the creation of slideshows and the ability to review student annotations on course images.
Any activity requiring the labeling of maps, illustrating art images, or highlighting elements of a graphic can easily be accomplished with the tool. http://www.ccnmtl.columbia.edu/projects/iat/ Image Annotation Tool Partner(s): Letty Moss-Salentijn
College of Dental Medicine http://ccnmtl.columbia.edu/projects/epiville/ Epiville: Disease Outbreak Simulation Partner(s): Dan Herman Lydia Zablotska
School of Public Health Students play the role of an epidemiologist, gathering facts and deciding actions to curb an outbreak that has struck the fictitious town of "Epiville."
The case study uses digital video newscasts and interviews and municipal websites provide information about commerce and diseases in an attempt to mirror real-life situations.
Different modules map onto various types of epidemiology study designs—case control, ecological, and cohort studies.
Another module explores the topic of infectious diseases. Interactive visuals and multiple-choice questions allow students to test hypotheses about these cases. Professional Lifelong Learning Plans Partner(s): John Zimmerman
College of Dental Medicine Supported by a grant from the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE), the Personal Lifelong Learning Project (PL3P) serves as a portal for post-graduate dental students and residents at Columbia.
The goal of the project is to coach students in lifelong learning strategies that can be continued for professional development beyond their formal studies.
PL3P provides electronic tools that promote active learning and reflection, including reflective blogs, learning plans and electronic portfolios in which residents are expected to provide evidence of their learning.
The PL3P approach requires the dental resident to take an active role in his own training by developing personalized learning plans to meet his individual needs. http://www.ccnmtl.columbia.edu/projects/listing/heart.html The Heart Simulator models the pressure-volume relationship.
It contains parameters that students manipulate to simulate conditions and pathologies. Changing these parameters is helpful for teaching and learning the functions of the heart.
The Heart Simulator provides a continuous graphic output of the relationship between pressure and volume in the heart under varying conditions. Partner(s): Daniel Burkhoff, Marc Dickstein
College of Physicians & Surgeons Heart Simulator http://mt.ccnmtl.columbia.edu/pedialabs PediaLabs is designed to improve graduate nursing and medical students' understanding of the underlying concepts that direct the proper use and interpretation of pediatric laboratory tests.
The site offers two online training modules to explain six concepts: reliability, validity, sensitivity, specificity, predictive value, and prevalence of a disease in a given population.
PediaLab's first module uses didactic self-directed instruction with immediate feedback quizzes, graphs, case examples, and animations intended to provide an enhanced learning experience for students.
The second module is comprised of case exercises that draw from real patient examples. Students must examine the cases, interpret labs tests, and then make diagnoses and follow-up decisions.
PediaLabs was developed in partnership with Rita Marie John, DNP, CPNP; Mary McCord, MD; and Arlene Smaldone, DNSc, CPNP of the Columbia University Medical Center. Partner: Rita Marie John, Mary McCord, and Arlene Smaldone- School of Nursing, College of Physicians & Surgeons PediaLabs http://pcore.ccnmtl.columbia.edu/ PCORE is a web-based portal providing a standardized curriculum to primary care students at Columbia's School of Physicians and Surgeons.
The portal offers five interactive education modules on prevention, diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and depression. It also includes an electronic library and online evidence-based point of care tools and patient education in primary care.
Accessible to Columbia students completing primary care rotations around the country, the portal also provides teaching resources to supervising residents and faculty of the Primary Care Clerkship.
PCORE bridges the principles of primary care from the electronic classroom to applications in everyday direct patient care.

College of Physicians and Surgeons Primary Care Online Resources and Education http://millenniumvillage.ccnmtl.columbia.edu/ The Millennium Village Simulation is a web-based simulation of economics and survival for one family and their village in a sub-Saharan African village.
In a virtual world of extreme poverty, disease, and environmental variability, students are challenged to help a family of two survive and prosper over a fifty-year period.
By making decisions regarding the family's allocation of time and financial resources, students develop a greater understanding of the manifold disciplines -- such as agronomy, nutrition, economics, epidemiology, public health and development management -- that constitute sustainable development and how those disciplines interact with each other in "real world" scenarios.
The simulation's creators hope that, by immersing themselves in the daily life of a family, students will identify more deeply with the local experience of extreme poverty.

The Earth Institute, SIPA Millennium Village Simulation http://ccnmtl.columbia.edu/projects/pl3p/ Simulation CCNMTL Projects are extensive efforts in which we attempt to create flexible tools and engaging study environments
focus on overlapping areas of innovation to support student inquiry and improve students' understanding.
include visualization and modeling tools; real-time data collection tools; data sharing programs; annotation and study tools; media archives; training environments; simulations and multimedia study environments.
emphasize collaboration, interaction and student activity
promote better communication, personalization and the multiplication of spaces, both real and virtual, in which students are invited to study, research, communicate and learn.
