Professor of E-Learning and Health Informatics


Co-creating digital resources in healthcare has many processes, pitfalls, and parameters. The development and transition from co-creation to impact requires effective knowledge exchange. This discussion panel will provide opportunity for attendees to interact with experienced facilitators and engage in the steps of the multifaceted journey towards impact, and disseminations of digital resources in healthcare. Recent experiences from the panel include projects such as 3060visi, CEPEH, CoViRR, TOTEMM, in additional to other reusable learning objects created.
The discussion will start with a brief outline to digital resources in healthcare through a description of some of the successful projects the panellists have overseen. It will follow with details of co-creative strategies and participatory design methods. This topic permits questions such as ‘What contemporary frameworks are available for best practice of co-creation?’, and ‘How can expertise be used as guidelines and recommendations for resources in development?’ Then, best practice for evaluation, dissemination, and impact will be discussed with open question and answer from participants throughout. Specifically, such frameworks and techniques discussed will surround the ASPIRE framework, the ADDIE model and others, and evaluation tools such as scales in usability, acceptance, efficacy, and other tools that facilitate measure of impact. Analysis in policies for implementation of such resources will be discussed and the conclusion by the panel will surround recommendations for making decisions that utilise newly developed digital resource created in healthcare.
The panel will be led by Stathis Konstantinidis- Stathis is an Associate Professor of eLearning and Health Informatics and has great experience on more than 35 EU co-funded projects from different roles, serving as the project co-ordinator in four and PI for the University of Nottingham in additional five all focusing on digital innovations in healthcare and education. His publication record includes more than 80 peer reviewed scientific publications in journals, conference proceedings, and books.
Anticipated time requirements will be the full 30 minutes, with questions from the audience throughout.
