Hacking Health Education: An Open Source Makeover for the Healthcare Curriculum

As medical educators seek out innovative ways to engage learners, there are increasing
electronic resources available – videos, podcasts, presentation slide sets, and journal articles. As one
busy educator creates new content, another may be inadvertently doing the same thing at a different
institution. Such duplicated effort can be both frustrating and limiting.
Leveraging lessons learned in other industries, we can encourage educational collaboration across
institutional and regional boundaries. In this workshop, we will apply open-source principles in medical
education using readily available web-based tools. Participants will convert their own slide set
presentation into an online module complete with references, attachments, and optional audio and
video that can be accessed anywhere.
