Academic Development

NextGen Ed

This group serves as a think tank and advisory group to the Associate Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs at the University of Mississippi Medical Center: by recommending the effective implementation of educational technology for academics; by studying the changes in educational technology affecting higher education; by identifying and promoting innovative teaching practices throughout the Medical Center, at other health science centers, and institutions of higher education worldwide; and by sharing those practices with faculty, students, staff and continuing education personnel at the Medical Center.

NextGen Ed meetings are currently held on a monthly basis and are open to all parties interested in educational technology. For more information, or to be added to the appointments, please contact Brenda Ward.
