Top Free Classes's curator insight, March 1, 2013 2:32 AM

Agree with this comment:  "We are not doing enough hands on learning in our undergrad courses as it is and our graduates and grad students don't know the first thing about how to apply the information they "earned" when they get out into the real world. That is the change that needs to happen in our education system and it needs to happen  quickly. If not our institutions are going to implode. When the populace feels there is little to no value in your product, you wont last long in the field." --GwendolynThompsonSchmidt

Interesting piece raising the challenge of how we move beyond Articulate packages to more active learning in medical education.  The example here is in the context of radiology and how the learning can be designed to be more social and link students to learning networks that exist like #FOAMed which is a good example of connectivism.
