Students will have access to Seelio throughout their learning experience to track and document learning outcomes

learning-outcomesGeorgetown University School of Medicine has selected Seelio by Keypath Education as an integrative learning and career preparation tool to help its students track their learning outcomes.

Georgetown University places 90 percent of its medical students into one of their top three residency choices each year. Students will now have access to Seelio throughout their learning experience to track and document learning outcomes.

“We want to determine if this tool will assist students in forming their professional identity, integrating learning that occurs in and outside of the classroom, and connecting in a new way with advisors throughout their journey as medical professionals,” said Dr. Maria Marquez, assistant dean for reflection and assessment, Georgetown University School of Medicine.

All first-year students will be introduced to Seelio in 2016, with the opportunity to bring Seelio to more students based on the initial launch period’s success.

Recognizing reflective practice as imperative for integrative learning, Georgetown University School of Medicine faculty and administrators are working with Seelio’s service team to identify touch points throughout the student experience where students will be prompted to document and connect key learning experiences.

Students will record these learning experiences in professional profiles as members of groups, or learning families, where they will receive continual feedback from peers and faculty. With evidence of student learning on Seelio, faculty can now better track learning outcomes and advise students on a more meaningful, holistic level.

As students and faculty capture key learning experiences on Seelio, Georgetown University School of Medicine will have galleries of student work for each learning family to demonstrate student learning outcomes.

“We’re excited to work with Georgetown University School of Medicine as it empowers students to reflect on key learning experiences throughout their journey to become leading medical professionals,” said Moses Lee, co-founder of Seelio and group president at Keypath Education.
