AMEE 2015, Association of Medical Educators of Europe , Glasgow, Scotland, Keynote, Sept 07, 2015.

In this presentation I draw the distinction between personalized learning and personal learning, arguing that the latter emphasizes environment and affordances, while the former emphasizes content and testing. I describe examples of experiential learning such as the NeuroTouch Simulator built by NRC and discuss how the same approach informs the creation of the MOOC. I conclude by explaining the development of the Learning and Performance Support system as a personal learning environment. There's a video here but I don't have the password.
