Conference by: Colla Jean MacDonald, Distinguished University Professor, Professor Emeritus

Dr. MacDonald uses song lyrics to highlight key lessons from her personal life and university career. She will explore her experiences over three decades making the transition from traditional face-to-face teaching to eLearning pedagogy. Dr. MacDonald uses music to facilitate her story, whether collaborating with her graduate students, the World Health Organization, the Faculty of Medicine, the National Board of Medical Examiners, the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons, the Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation, Doctors Without Boarders, the Ontario Nurses Association, the Bruyère Research Institute or the University of Malta. She will describe her exhilarating journey integrating education with health care,  focusing on her efforts to develop innovative, authentic learning solutions for a complex, changing education system.

This presentation will be in English.
