Demystifying the Use of ‘Big Data’ for Medical Education

word cloud

The use of learning analytics in medical education and residency training programs has reached a tipping point: The amount of available and accessible sources of data and educational tools that can aid in understanding how trainees best learn is currently unprecedented. At the same time, educational data mining can literally be a minefield for those unfamiliar with cutting-edge analytics systems, software and platforms. Understanding how to critically interpret, present and use data related to assessment and clinical care is a significant step in advancing and enhancing medical education for the next generation of physicians.

Join a diverse group of medical education stakeholders on October 18-19, 2017 for ICRE’s inaugural Learning Analytics Summit: Demystifying the Use of ‘Big Data’ for Medical Education, and explore how analytics can help trainees reach their full potential. During this two-day summit, our international faculty of experts will engage participants in an interactive format, and discuss issues of validity and design, anchored on real-world examples.

Learning Objectives and Audience

This pre-conference summit is designed for medical educators, researchers, innovators, developers, implementers, accreditors and observers who are interested in learning more about how to best navigate and utilize analytics within their own training programs and/or professional practice.
