TOPIC:  Engaging the Digital Learner:  How has growing-up digital impacted learning?

Tuesday, September 10, 2013, 12:00 noon - 1:00 p.m., Room G1/G2, Jordan Hall Conference Center

Presenter: Curtis L. Whitehair, MD, Associate Medical Director, Regional Physiatry; Program Director, MedStar GUH/NRH PM&R Residency Training Program; and Assistant Professor of Clinical Rehabilitation Medicine - Georgetown University School of Medicine

Description: There has been a lot written about the Digital Native, Digital Immigrant and Digital Wisdom or Literacy as it pertains to the learners of today. Most of this literature originated in the early 2000’s concerning how K-12 pedagogy would react to this new Digital Native. Much has been learned about them over the last decade, but these new learners are rapidly approaching medical school and residency training. This presentation will focus on understanding the today’s learner or generation so that educators can start to appreciate the impact this may have on their teaching style, pedagogy and curriculums of the future.  By the end of this session, participants will be able to discuss current literature on those born in the digital age, explore the generational and demographic differences between learners and teachers of today and describe how the young digital age learners are processing information in the rapidly changing digital time.
