Abstract Body: As educators, we are asked to manage constant change as we deliver top notch education. The university context has changed in many ways and this frequently involves working in areas outside our expertise. One of the biggest areas of change involves leveraging technology and media in learning, and now suddenly, long term experts in science, medicine and education may feel unprepared to move forward in a new technology enhanced curriculum. UCSF faced this challenge starting four years ago as we worked to transform our curriculum into the new UCSF Bridges curriculum. Our old mindsets and strategies to design technology enhanced instruction were holding us back. In this session, we present a new instructional design mindset to provide a framework for non-technologists to use when leveraging technology to enhance the curriculum. Objectives Describe current challenges and goals at medical schools leveraging technology in the curriculum Describe a new Instructional Design Mindset to enable non-technologists to create effective learning that uses technology Describe educational outcomes when using this new mindset Apply this new Instructional Design mindset at your institution Session Methods: 1. Slide presentation using the UCSF Bridges curriculum as an example of some of the challenges facing medical schools and outcomes 2. Presentation describing a New Instructional Design Mindset 3. Hands-on activities: Independently: participants complete a short self-reflection describing their current instructional design mindset In small groups: discuss this new mindset for themselves and their teams. A New Instructional Design Mindset: 1. Passion for teaching and learning - willingness to explore teaching & learning in any form, with technology or without, engaged in how people learn 2. Human Centered Design – using design principles that start with the learner, Design Thinking, and User Experience (UX) 3. Informal Coaching and Mentoring - involves empathy for others, informal teaching that goes back and forth where each person teaches skills and mindsets while working together 4. Team play - team management and communications, leading and following others to produce results as a team 5. Creativity – curiosity, asking “what if?” - exploring and connecting innovations 6. Project management –managing the details on our projects and others Intended Outcomes: Participants will be able to describe this new instructional design mindset and take it back to their schools to develop themselves, teams and for engaging instructional design experts. Intended Audience course directors, instructors, instructional designers, technologists, administrators
