Pharmacy Education 2023 - Speakers
Opening General Session
Developing a Digital Mindset
Rapid advances in digital technologies are threatening to change how we work. To thrive in a world driven by data and powered by algorithms, we must learn to see, think, and act in new ways. We need to develop a digital mindset. In this talk, Dr. Paul Leonardi discusses how educators and practitioners can build a digital mindset in this new age of AI. He will begin by discussing the skills educators need to be able to successfully deploy AI tools in the classroom and he will demonstrate ways to teach students to take advantage of new digital capabilities. He will then discuss changes to work that are likely to affect pharmacists in the coming years and he will offer advice on how to prepare our students to embrace these changes and to carve out distinct roles for themselves in the digital economy.
