MOOCs - A Disruptive Innovation in CME
January 23, 2020, 1:00 - 2:00 PM CT

Presenter: Alvaro Margolis, MD, MSc, FIAHSI
President, Global Alliance for Medical Education, GAME
President & CEO, EviMed 

Facilitator: Mila Kostic, CHCP, FACEHP

About: Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are now common across disciplines, including Medicine. In this Webinar, it will be contended - and participants will be able to argue for or against - that massive online courses are going to disrupt the CME landscape and become an integral component of how continuing medical education is delivered globally in the next five years.

Dr. Margolis will start his introductory presentation with a precise definition of the terms "MOOC" and "disruptive innovation”, This will be followed by an analysis of the potential for disruption of MOOCs for healthcare professionals and teams, including practical current examples and the rational for the trends and future developments.  Finally, we will engage in a dialogue with the audience about how likely this forecast is and how these concepts apply to their own settings.
