"Model Digital-Age Work and Learning" (ISTE, 2008)
As a Curriculum Developer with the Medical School at Dalhousie University, I worked on an education grant with the Public Health Agency of Canada & Canadian Institutes of Health Research - Influenza Research Network (PCIRN). I developed curriculum, with problem-based learning, to bring researchers, policy makers, and health care workers together to discuss strategies to deal with an influenza pandemic. This included developing online modules and co-ordinating video conferencing and face-to-face seminars. At our year end symposium, the graduate students and post doctoral fellows presented their research, which we captured on video. I edited the videos and added bumpers and credits with iMovie and shared them across the consortium via the PCIRN YouTube Channel. Not only did I grow in my education career, but I also learned a great deal about research and of course pandemic influenza.
