Connecting with the Future: Neuromodulation Art and Science Made Easy with Technology

7:00 AM - 8:00 AM Friday, January 14

In the era of significant technological advances not only in neuromodulation but also in day to day activities, teaching and learning complex tasks need to be aligned with the times. As such, classical techniques of classroom teaching as well as direct hands on teaching may be challenged with new modalities involving virtual reality, simulation, social media and beyond. Exploring all those techniques as well as reinventing classic learning techniques such as PBLD's, flopped classes and others this session will give participants tools to navigate and retain information and sources in the complex field of neuromodulation

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  • Understand the role of virtual reality in the ability to retain useful information on neuromodulation techniques
  • Describe techniques that are essential in retaining information and knowledge during learning neuromodulation techniques
  • Identify essential elements of social media that may contribute to dissemination of information regarding neuromodulation
  • Identify barriers to learning neuromodulation in fellowship and its impact of these barriers in real life after fellowship
