Stanford Medicine Interactive Learning Initiatives
Stanford School of Medicine launched the Stanford Medicine Interactive Learning Initiatives (SMILI) in Summer 2012 to address the call for educational reform to address modern pedagogies facilitated by new educational technologies and changing learning modalities (flipped classroom / hybrid learning).
The exploration of interactive learning is part of a larger effort at the school to align its curriculum with the changing healthcare environment and the new ways in which students learn. Led by Charles Prober, Senior Associate Dean for Medical Education, this reform effort includes multiple working groups which are reviewing different elements of our medical education program.
Instructional Tech works closely with these other teams within SMILI to provide project consultations/guidance, project management, and development resources.
