Help make a digital textbook a reality
If you’ve ever wondered what a digital “textbook” would look like in the future, the Open.Michigan group has something in mind that will appeal to you.
The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the U-M Medical School would like to create the medical textbook of the future. The department is particularly interested in having SI students flex their design and innovation skills to help Open.Michigan and the Medical School’s Learning Resource Center with the project. Emily Puckett Rodgers, an SI alumna and open education coordinator with Open.Michigan, wants you to lend your perspectives, skills, expertise, and interests to shape this project for the educational opportunities of the 21st century.
Open.Michigan will host two design jams with the goal of transforming this idea into a reality. They will be from 5:30-8 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 13 and Thursday, Jan. 20 in the Taubman Medical Library, 1135 E. Catherine St., room 3901. Dinner will be provided. An RSVP is requested.
To get you started, the sponsors suggest you ponder these questions:
- What would a medical digital “textbook” of the future look like?
- What kinds of information would it have?
- How would you interact with it?
- When would you use it?
This design jam will bring together students, faculty, and staff from across U-M. This event is an opportunity to apply some course concepts to a real opportunity with a small time commitment. There may also be opportunities for continued involvement in the project.Explore posts in the same categories: Faculty, Research, Students
