AGU's E-learning specialist Arpan Stephen took part in the Digi Health Middle East 2021 Conference recently held virtually.
It was organised as a collaborative effort between the UAE Health Ministry and Community Protection, the Dubai Health Authority, the National Health Regulatory Authority (NHRA) from Bahrain in addition to the Bahrain Society for Artificial Intelligence along with the E-Health Authority in Jordan.
During the conference Mr Stephen discussed AGU's initiatives in creating teaching methods that utilise technology as a tool to enhance teaching and learning in health care education.
He also highlighted the role of artificial intelligence and augmented reality in changing the rules of the game in the health care education field.
It is noteworthy to mention that AGU took on a proactive role prior to the extraordinary circumstances imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic as it started to develop an advanced e-learning system in 2015 aimed at enhancing the educational process while ensuring its vitality.
The University designed a platform for e-medicine education, which later qualified the university to receive the bronze medal at the Conference on Reimagining Education organised by the QS Authority for Evaluation of Educational Institutions and Wharton University – which is ranked first in the world in the field of business administration.
AGU was awarded the bronze medal after surpassing 807 projects submitted by universities from across the world.
