SEMINAR 12th November - Carolyn Canfield:Experience based co-design for system transformation led by older persons moving in, out of and across Ontario’s healthcare system
Publication date: 10 November 2014
Wednesday 12th November 3pm, Torrington Place 1-19, 115 Galton Lecture Theatre Experience based co-design mobilizes the unique expertise of patients, their families and carers for healthcare improvement. The clients of care systems can best identify needs and direct development for successful solutions to close service gaps and improve outcomes that matter to patients.
Is it really possible to defer to those dependent on care to identify priorities for transformation, prepare specifications for technological aids and then co-produce innovative design, development, testing, implementation, evaluation and spread? If you’re not involving the end user in your technological solution, you are likely missing the problem.
Within the context of Canadian healthcare, with its similarities and contrasts to the NHS, Ontario's Northumberland PATH project is empowering 300 older persons with complex health conditions to reflect, redefine and reconfigure health services using technology to assist. Patient pursuit of wellbeing crosses system silos and targets user-identified drivers for an improved quality of life. I’ll introduce you to this innovative project’s origins, realization and achievement as a leading model of experience-based co-design that is rapidly implementing customer-led health delivery. Yes, there’s an app for that!

"Fieldwork for Healthcare" Book Launch Competition: 5 copies of Volume 1 to give away!
Publication date: 3 July 2014
We’re developing a network of people that are interested in Fieldwork for Healthcare from a human factors, HCI, informatics, ethnographic, user experience, ergonomic, design and usability related perspectives. We have run two CHI workshops, published a book, have another book forthcoming, and there is talk of a journal special issue and another workshop in the pipeline. We want to broaden our network and reach out to more researchers and practitioners who want to hear about and get involved in future activities. To help us achieve this, Morgan & Claypool Publishers have given us five copies of the new book to give away, all you have to do to enter the competition is to join our email list to receive future announcements. Visit the website to find out more.

Most instructors are familiar with how challenging it is to create good multiple-choice questions with plausible alternative answers. But what happens when students generate their own questions, targeting the material they are learning, and contribute them to a shared repository where they can be answered, rated and discussed by their peers? It turns out there are many interesting answers to this question.
This talk will present the pedagogical motivations for having students build and moderate their own repository of questions using the PeerWise web-based tool. The repository serves not only as a drill-and-test library that students can use for practice, but also as a creative medium for engaging students in critical reflection and deep learning. A brief overview of PeerWise will be given, illustrated with examples of genuine student contributions and case studies of its use in practice. A summary of current research will be presented, and the talk will conclude with a look to the future.
Paul Denny is an instructor in the department of Computer Science at the University of Auckland. His interests include developing and evaluating technologies for supporting collaborative learning, particularly involving student-authored resources. He created PeerWise to help students author, share and discuss course-related assessment questions. In 2009 PeerWise won the Australasian Association for Engineering Education Award for innovation in curricula, learning and teaching.
PeerWise is now used at 1000 universities and schools around the world, hosting more than a million questions with associated explanations and discussions, and tens of millions of student answers. Paul is a recipient of the National Tertiary Teaching Excellence Award (2009) and the Computing Research and Education Association of Australasia Teaching Award (2010). His recent publications have examined the effectiveness of virtual achievements for motivating students in online environments and investigated the effectiveness of various styles of error reporting on the performance of novice programming students.
