EFFECTIVE USE OF TECHNOLOGY

                   Glossary

Welcome to HOSA 102: Effective Use of Technology in the Health Science Technology Classroom and the HOSA Chapter! This course is designed to be self-paced.  It is offered for either CEUs or three (3) hours of university credit. To earn CEUs, participants must follow the instructions for registration by the CEU granting institution.

The course consists of five (5) modules.  The fifth module is optional for CEU credit and required for those seeking university credit.

Each module contains four (4) sections:

  • Objectives – List of objectives for the module.
  • Content – Information about the topics in the module and examples of how you can use this material in your courses.
  • Readings – Suggested Internet links for more information on a topic, and textbook reading assignments for those students seeking university credit.
  • Assignments – Learning activities related to the module objectives.  The instructor of record will determine if assignments are to be e-mailed to the instructor or collected in a portfolio to be submitted when the course has been completed.

University Credit

Course participants registered for University Credit will be required to purchase the textbook, “Information Technology for the Health Professions.”  Textbook reading assignments will be listed for each module.

Evidence of completion of assignments must be submitted as directed by the course instructor, either via e-mail or portfolio.  Every portfolio assignment will be evaluated.  90% of the assignments must be completed at an acceptable standard (as determined by the course instructor) to earn credit for the portfolio (assignments.)  Optional assignments, if completed, will provide extra credit in the portfolio evaluation process.

At the conclusion of the course, a 100-item multiple-choice final exam will be administered under secure conditions.  The exam will measure the objectives in the course from material in the “content” sections of the modules and required readings. Grades will be determined by satisfactory submission of the portfolio and the grade earned on the final exam, based on a 10-point scale.
